COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at brewery. Poured dark reddish brown with a small fizzy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Heavy roasted malt, smoke and woody aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Medium smoky sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of long duration.

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.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2006
On tap at the Great Taste of the Midwest. Poured an almost flat dirty caramel with only a dusting of swirly off-white as head. Sweet bourbon-accented nose with heavily-smoked peat and grainy notes. The flavor was even sweeter, which was rather well-balanced well by the smoky peat and some woody bitterness at the sides... caramel and other dark sugars in there. The lower carbonation worked well in this one, but it remained a bit too sweet for my tastes... flowed well.

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2006
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.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2009
[Cask @ Livery] Poured a brown amber color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked meats, burnt wood, oxidation, nuts, caramel malts, and light roast. Taste of more smoke, nuts, caramel, toast, some oxidation, and a bit of alcohol in the finish.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Pours to a hazy brown body with a very large bubbly tan head. The aroma is sweet powdered sugar, nice peat malt. The flavor is sweet citrusy hops, light powdered sugar, peat. Nice palate, creamy, airy, delicate.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, 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!

Gorbalev (2953) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2006
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!

MIBRomeo (2567) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2006
cloudy deep crimson pour w/ a nice tan well laced head. Aroma of smoked wood, very peaty. Palate is well coated and a bit light. Flavor is like burnt peat from a fire heavily smoked peat over a sweet malt & a dry woody finish. Good stuff.
