That's right folks. It's that time of the year when it gets hotter than the sun and we start to be invaded with the big hitting bevies from the north.
There is nothing quite like drinking a Imperial Stout, Barley Wine or Abt/Quudrupel at night when it's 38°C outside.
Damn Sydney and this Southern Hemisphere, with it's "sunny one day and perfect the next" rubbish.
Give me winter, snow, fire places, pork belly and Dogfish Head any day.
Some Dieu Di Ciel seasonal have arrived to Platinum Liquor.
Rigor Mortis Abt. Their lovely Abt/Quadrupel.
scaling in at %10.5 ABV.
And their Équinoxe du Printemps, a Maple Syrup Scotch Ale.
We are definitely looking forward to trying this one first.
I enjoy maple syrup on everything from Korean food to Gorgonzola cheese, so just imagine how exited we get when brilliant brewers put it in with a smooth smokey malty scotch ale.
