This Scottish-style wee heavy ale is deep ruby in color, full in body with a sweet, malty finish. A great beer for late Fall or early Winter. If it ainít Scottish itís...!

Had on draft. Kilt Flasher is a dark reddish-brown in color with a sturdy beige head. The aroma is sweet malt caramel with some earthy undertones. The slightly sweet taste has some nuttiness and a hint of bitter hops. A sweet malt flavor remains in the finish. The 8% ABV makes this one a sipper, though the alcohol is well-masked. Will seek out again for sure!

12oz bottle from a locals trade. Pours medium amber brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, fruity esters. Flavor is just as malty as the aroma... caramel, toffee, fruity esters here as well. I can see why they made an oak aged version. A little vanilla and tannins from the oak would elevate this.

AirForceHops (6303) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 20, 2016
12 oz. bottle thanks to Willrunforbeer. Deep brown/ ruby appearance, thin lasting head. Aroma is layered raisins, toffee, and woody hints. Promising.

The flavor follows with the layered malt depth, follows the aroma. Good dark fruits and wood, hint of smoke. Body is medium with a creamy texture over the palate. This is proper for the style. Good stuff.

A very impressive SA. It is malty with lots of caramel to start. It is fairly sweet and malty in the nose. There is a dash of herbs in the flavor, which is top notch for the style imo. This could be the best thing Iíve tried yet from this brewery (which is now owned by Bud @#%).

Bottle from Beer and Wine. Dark brown body with thin tan head. Nose is malty, alcy, spicy. Taste is malts, caramel, strong ale and nice and sweet in the syrupy finish. Good stuff.

nearbeer (4929) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Half growler. Deep copper-brown and clear. Thin film of creamy bubbles on top. Nose is earthy toffee with hints of coffee and ash. Tastes of rich dark toffee, smoldering hay, peppery green herb and a touch of over-ripe apple. Medium-heavy body has medium carbonation and a nice balance. Not a stickler for style categories, but this really seems to have quite a bit of peat-smoked malt, so Iím guessing it should be a "Scottish" and not a "Scotch" as currently listed.

22 oz bottle from Nimbleprop shared with a big group. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, a candy like quality, some oak character to the finish, floral almost, which is a bit weird, more mal, decent enough.
