COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 ain’t Scottish it’s...!

Ahhhhh. I have come to really enjoy a good Scotch ale, and this falls squarely in that category (and at a reasonable price). Poured from a bottle, great color and lacing. Not overwhelmingly syrupy, good caramel notes

Pours dark brown with ruby tinges at the edge, topped with a a finger or so of light brown head. The nose is tobacco, smoke and earthy hops. Taste is sweet caramel, but not overpowering, with a delicate bitter twist at the end that brings a beautiful sense of balance to the beer. Definitely a supping on a Friday night beer. Very nice.

Tap - @ RHP. Pours dark caramel brown, no real head. Aromas of roasted malts, slight caramel toast and toffee. Tastes of caramels nuts and malts, little bit of cocoa, finishing with but of bitterness. Ok.

Sweet and malty flavor with a bit of a wood and licorice in the finish. Pours a dark red color.

Caramel flavor. Deep red pour without a head. The aroma is quite sweet and tempting. The taste is clean and smooth for 8%. I’m a huge scotch ale fan and this is quite good!

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!

tunneler (131) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2012
A very well balanced beer. Light aroma of sweet malt, toffee. Taste is also slightly sweet, every so slightly fruity, crisply bitter. A little smoke would make this first class!

Bottle. Pours a dark reddish amber with a small tan head. The nose is malt, caramel, and sweet cherry. Tastes of caramel malt, butterscotch, plum, and chocolate covered cherries. A little boozy but comes through creamy on the palate with nice carbonation. A hint of bitter balances well with the dark fruit and sweeter tones. Excellent and different wee heavy!

Fair, not much malt in aroma. Would have liked more. Kind of cloudy and muddy. Good flavors but lacking something. Decent finish with a lingering caramel note.
