I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a tea colored concoction that poured a tan head that went away very fast. The beer had a slight sour smell to it but did not taste so. In fact it had a bit of a caramel note. Good lacing was present but the beer was a little flat tasting, still I will try it again.

Appearance - translucent crimson color with little white head

Smell - caramel, cherry

taste - cherry, caramel

mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium carbonation, slight sweetness, not much complexity in the flavor profile

overall - a beer who's flavor profile lacked bold or complex flavors, can't say i'd be interested in a re-visit

Price Point - $2.35/12 oz single

12 oz bottle. Doggy label style. Julian code on bottom of bottle.

Pours a hazed, dirty orange color. Nice head retention. Smell is crisp and tight, with a ton of peaty malt scent. Taste is a bit bockish and sweet, with a gob of peaty malts immediately following. A tart, bitter finish happens with a creamy feel. Drinkability is good. An excellent, tasty beer.

Appearance: It pours a dark amber to mahogany with a thick light beige head two fingers thick.

Aroma: Lots of caramel malts nicely bready with notes of molasses. Some dark fruits, plum, traces of grape.

Taste: Chocolate malts, notes of coaco, the malts are very bready which is a very good thing. There are some dark fruits bits of plum and some note of black licorice. The mouthfeel is smooth with light carbonation.

Notes: This is dam tasty the breadiness is nothing short of remarkable. Cheers.

Dark amber colored beer with a rapidly fading head.Aroma is caramle malts.Taste is caramel,citrus and toasted malts.A pretty decent beer that goes down relatively smooth.I would recommend to try this at least once and I probably would buy this again.

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.

A: Looks pretty good. It is a dark carmel color in the center, and lighter around the edges. It's topped by a nice thin white head.

S: The smell is feint but it's there, and it's not what I would expect from this. I get a slight roasted character which backs up the more malty backbone of the beer.

T: The roast comes through on the taste as well, but even more-so than on the nose. I get a slight chocolate flavor mixed in as well. It is also a bit hopper than expected, but not so much that is out of the box.

M: Good carbonation (medium) and a moderatly-high body. Not cloying or sticky at all.

D: Drinks quite nicely, I like it a lot.

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.
