Pours a dark ruby brown with a light khaki/off-white single finger of foam.

Slightly fruity, caramel, biscuity, and definite ethanol aroma.

Caramel, raisin, figs, some vanilla, and bready malt maltbackbone.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, fruity, sweet, dry finish.

Overall, this doesn't hold up against most of the scotch ales that I enjoy, namely Claymore and Dirty Bastard.

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.

Smells like butter caramel malt. Yum.

Lots of flavors here. Definite sweet butterscotch and caramel malt presence. A get a bit of vanilla, a scotchy peaty characteristic that is subdued by the sweetness of the malt. Dried prunes raisins and fruitcake.

Mouthfeel is a very nice medium body. Just enough carbonation to keep things interesting.

This is a great example of the style.
