COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A roasty scotch ale with a hint of smoke. Full-bodied, but not overpowering. Smokey, but not in a creepy bar kind of way. Sweet, but not obnoxiously so. Sound like your ideal mother-in-law? Fair enough, but it also is a pretty dead-on description of our Scotch Ale. In a difficult hop-growing climate, Scottish brewers relied on other ingredients to impart flavor and bitterness – one such ingredient was smoked malt. Drafty Kilt is a dark, malty bombshell of a beer.

Brewed at Thomas Creek before the brewery opened.

On tap at Ale Yeah! In Roswell, GA. Smoke flavor is mild enough to be enjoyable. Full, round, flavorful.

Comes out of the tap a barely transparent chocolate brown with a fine-bubbled light tan head. Rich, malty, chocolaty and spicy aroma invites a taste. Mouth-filling malty flavor has a spicy undertone and hints of chocolate and toffee. Strongly tingly texture leaves a persistent fizz behind.

This beer was surprisingly smooth but with a very nice finish. You can taste the smoke but not too much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this at Six Feet Under in a tulip (thistle). Very fragrant but well rounded bitterness. Impressive, will enjoy again.

32 oz growler from Catch A Drought. It pours dark brown almost black with a small tan head. It has the aroma of smoke with chocolate and a little coffee. It has a wonderful somewhat complex malty taste. It tastes of smoke, chocolate, caramel & bread with maybe a little vanilla and a slight woody flavor. This is really an outstanding beer.

Ridiculousness in a glass. So good. Only thing I could possibly say is I would love to chew on this brew but I can only drink it. Seek this out!

Love the smokiness flavor throughout, definitely has a malty finish to clean up with a perfect balance

Pours a dark reddish brown with a quickly dissapating head. Aroma of roasted malts and smoke. Taste is sweet roasty malts with a light smokey taste throughout. Loads of malts. Nice slightly bitter finish to wrap up the awesome malty sweetness of this ale.

Pours a dark, clear red with a fluffy white head. Aroma is caramel and smoked malts. Taste is very much the same. Nice, thick mouthfeel with some carbonation. This is a solid, straightforward beer.
