Highlanders and Lowlanders agree, a good kilt lifting on occasion raises the spirits. With gentle roasted graininess and a touch of sweetness, Kilt Lifter is warm and strong enough for all ye lads, lasses and sheep. Put it in yer belly!

deyholla (12038) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a light brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grain with hints of toffee and sweet fruits. Flavor begins with sweet fruit but has a good amount of toffee that comes out in the finish.

shrubber85 (11582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Tap. Sweet bing cherry and malt aroma. Dark amber color with small head. Initially a moderate hops flavor followed by a very nice caramel and cherry flavor and a hint of smokiness. Has a nice hops finish. Very nicely blended on the fruity side.

daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Deep amber pour. Toffee flavors, oxidized apples, light cocoa, wheat crackers. Leaves something to be desired IMO.

much drier malt flavor, only a touch of sweetness, just too dry for a scotch ale, must be a mistake, a big drop for this usually fine ale

Score: downgrade iii to ii
still dry, and now a bit thin, too, a touch of smokey peat character, the sweetness barely shows up at the end but it remains too thin

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thin light tan head. Caramel malty aroma has a touch of green English hops and a hint of lager yeast. Starts sweet with nice subtle malty caramel flavor but it very thin and watery, especially toward the finish. It hides it’s alcohol well though, somehow, but could really use some more body.

decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Mahogany pour with off white creamy head and lace. Semi sweet malt caramel malt and abv on the nose. Abv, semi sweet malt, brown sugar, and a mdium bitter finish. Medium/full bodied with nice carbonation. Very warm sweet and smooth. Very nice.
