Twisted Kilt Scotch Ale | Thirsty Dog Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass, the head on this beer is three fingers thick and off-white, with solid lacing, and a deep, dark reddish brown body.

Smells like a generous helping of the caramelized malts mentioned on the label with only very faint notes of scotch.

Wow, this almost actually tastes like caramel! Yet nothing is too heavy or lingering; goes down nice& has a quenching finish.

Medium light mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll choose to give Twisted Kilt Scotch Ale | Thirsty Dog Brewing Company a 4.5. This is a nice mix of flavor and drinkability.

12 ounce bottle - $2.49 at Total Wine & More in Greenville, South Carolina.

Appearance: Pours a relatively clear, dark reddish-brown body with a slim, thin, light ecru head.

Smell: Toasty, lightly nutty with a thin shaving of roast. A little fruitiness. Modest notes of cocoa and the brownest of sugars.

Taste: A washed out, watered-down taste of heavily toasted bread given a bit of brown sugar sweetness and a hint of cocoa powder. Light raisiny fruitiness. A modest touch of spicy hops with a very low bitterness. Sweetish, toasty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: So-so.

Pours a amber color. Sweet aroma with roasted malts and molasses. It is very highly carbonated. Tastes of roasted malts, hoppy grass and an off taste of seltzer.

Beautiful color, but no real beer aroma. Gritty taste-not smokey or hoppy--Grassy. Not a wee heavy, so do not be fooled.

Very nice Scottish Ale! The malt is exceptional and goes down really smooth. One of my favorites. ;)
