Tognetta (334) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 15, 2015
Coloração ambar escura, quase marrom, turva. Espuma bege, se desfez rapidamente no copo. Aroma misto de caramelo, pinho, levemente amadeirado. Paladar com dulçor médio, trouxe notas de gramínea, um sabor ainda novo para mim em uma cerveja . Corpo médio, na minha percepção intensificado pelo teor alcoólico. Aftertaste trás um leve amargor, mas o dulçor se destaca. Um sabor bem diferente do que já havia provado, agradável!

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 14, 2015
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy reddish brown with a thin broken white head. The aroma is sweet malt, rich fruit. The flavour is moderate sweet with a big warm resin woody hop, sweet cherry trifle palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

bartzluke (329) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Poured from a bomber from room temp into two goblets. Strong head, but quickly dissipates. Moderate lacing. Deep red-brown color. Nose is strong caramel and toffee. Taste is same with a strong sweetness up front and a quickly-fading aftertaste. Overall pretty tasty, but lacks complexity. I enjoyed it.

ronaldtheriot (1523) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Moylan’s Kilt Lifter Scotch Style Ale has a thick, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, ruby, appearance, with ascending stray bubbles and some nice sheet lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, mildly fruit, bread crust, and a touch of alcohol. Taste is of those elements, plus some caramel, alongside subdued alcohol and low level bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Moylan’s Kilt Lifter Scotch Style Ale finishes semi-dry and relatively drinkable. RJT

Idiosynkrasie (4911) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2015
650ml bottle. Murky, copperish-brown colour, amber glimmer, with small to average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Nuttily, malty aroma, notes of toffee, ephemeral fruity overtones with hints of red berries and stone fruit. Taste is initially minimally tart-ish, dry fruity, hints of red berries, later minimally sweet malty, some toffee, a touch of caramel. Unconvincing.

"great looking beer on the pour. heavy peat tones, sweet, alcohol nose. Same on the palate. A little sweet, a little smokey. As with Sacsquatch, the lack of consistency prevents me from giving it a really good score, but that’s it. you can count on the quality from the tap, just not the bottle."
