COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Highlanders and Lowlanders agree, a good kilt lifting on occasion raises the spirits. With gentle roasted graininess and a touch of sweetness, Kilt Lifter is warm and strong enough for all ye lads, lasses and sheep. Put it in yer belly!

On tap at the brewpub. This isnt as gloriously awesome as their IPA, but this is a good beer. Hides the alcohol and has a smooth malty feel. Tasty.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2005
Nice dark color with lacy head. Malty, slightly piney, and woody. Slightly syrupy and kind of hard to swallow, but other than that it was all good.

21iceman40 (1732) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2005
nice darkish purple infused color with a fastly vanishing soapy head. Very malty aroma full of carmel wood. Tasted much the same with some added maple tones to it. Pretty god damn solid.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Peat/mint/caramel--a very nice aroma but a tad subdued. Taste:ooh, smokiness in finish, medium-heavy mouthfeel with oiliness. Peat/smoke. A bit of maple syrup. Satisfying.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thin light tan head. Caramel malty aroma has a touch of green English hops and a hint of lager yeast. Starts sweet with nice subtle malty caramel flavor but it very thin and watery, especially toward the finish. It hides its alcohol well though, somehow, but could really use some more body.

reddish brown w/ a slightly malty nose & flavor. this is not a big scotch ale, but very tame.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Medium brown with small white head. Maltiness with a slight bit of smoke in the aroma and flavor from peat malt. I thought the 2003 version of this beer was better than 2004; as it was more malty and had a more pronounced smoke flavor. Still a very good drinkable beer.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2004
1L bottle. Brown color not much head. Not much in way of carbonation. Smooth medium bodied. Aroma was malty and roasty but missing the smokiness. Flavors were somewhat roasty, sweet like brown sugar and malty.
