Cask aged version of Bigford Brothers Kilt Tilter. This Scotch ale is named after two of the most talented individuals we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Music, painting, woodworking, they do it all and do it well! Dark in color, this ale is brewed with peated barley for the distinctively smoky finish.

Draught. Dark brown with a tan head and lace. The aroma is heavily smoky, woody, and earthy with even some faint tart fruitiness. Interesting malt complexity with alcohol warmth. Chewy caramel flavour and smokiness along with some dark fruit. Nice depth and overall profile.

Really dark brown, really frothy tan head - looked amazing. Peat, whisky aroma - nice, but too much whisky. Peat, sweet malt, and whisky in taste - again, really nice, but too much booze. Nice stuff overall, would like to try the non-cask aged version.

Draught sample at MBG 2006 Summer Festival. Ruby-brown with a small tan head. Aroma is nice & big - malty, peaty, smoky - yeah, that’s a Scotch Ale! Flavour is fairly sweet to start, malt and caramel, with drying notes of whisky and wood as it finishes. This is some fine, fine stuff - jerc is wrong once again!

Terminus (3597) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 24, 2006
tap at brewpub-ruby hue with a soft soapy off-white head. nose of big oake, smokey as hell-lots of tobacco with some sweet malts and dark fruit tones. Peat moss-yep, its there! Big smokey flavors start but balanced with toffee, chocolate, char, and dark fruits. very nice and pillowy/lush mouthfeal. Truely an outstanding beer. I totally dig this one!

Michigan Brewers Festival 2006. Hazy dark brown with a small bubbly tan head. (3+) A big woody character dominates over muted retreating sweet malts in the aroma. The pleasant sweet malt character in the flavour is similarly upstaged by an overbearing coarse woody alcoholic presence. Average palate. A disappointment, the wood really spoiled this one for me. I would very much like to try it with less of a barrel influence. May have stayed in the barrel too long for my tastes? Shows promise.

Michigan BGF 06, Rating #2500: Deep brown hue with no head but a nice oily film. The aroma has notes of smoky and peaty malt, star fruit, plum, grassy hops, earthy yeast esters, and fresh oak.

The taste starts with a smoky but not too powerful character supported by a plum and prune fruity undertone. Displays a woody note more towards the finish and there is just a dash of bitters found within.

The mouth feel is smooth, oily and lush but not sticky nor cloy. A most excellent brew, barrel aged well and restrain use of smoked malt (around 12% per Steve the brewmaster). I can not wait to get a growler of this tomorrow night.
