BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Monday Night Brewing

Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A roasty scotch ale with a hint of smoke. Full-bodied, but not overpowering. Smokey, but not in a creepy bar kind of way. Sweet, but not obnoxiously so. Sound like your ideal mother-in-law? Fair enough, but it also is a pretty dead-on description of our Scotch Ale. In a difficult hop-growing climate, Scottish brewers relied on other ingredients to impart flavor and bitterness – one such ingredient was smoked malt. Drafty Kilt is a dark, malty bombshell of a beer.

From the can in a snifter via the little lady's daughter and significant other---
Cheers Janette and Jamie! This brew pours a nice deep dark brown mahogany
with a nice head of khaki foam that settles to a thick ring, thin layer, and shows
some beautiful lacing. Nose of smoked peated malt, sweet caramel malts, subtle
cherry notes, and deep roasted elements with a hint of herbal hops. Flavors
follow the nose with toasty malts, light smoked peat elements, subtle herbal
hops, and a nice caramel flavor. Nice mouth feel; medium body, medium
carbonation, and a rich malty finish with a touch of warmth.

Overall a SOLID little brew from a new to us brewery.

Always a go to. I will say, this on tap vs bottled is quite different. Highly recommend draft when possible.

Peat, bog, smoked salmon, Cullen skink, shortbread, haggis, deep fried Mars bars and scotch. These are the things that remind me of Scotland. And this beer. Takes me back too those wet rainy streets of Glasgow. Wee good.

Had 6 months past BB date but was given to me so whatever. Not bad for old beer and since low IBU aged well i guess. Very similar to old Chub from OB fame. Had that Scotchy metallic taste with sweet malty tone. Style is not for me but seems to be a quality brew.

I'm not usually a big fan of the style, finding it too sweet, but this is a brew I enjoy, albeit in small doses.

Definitely taste some caramel and a bit of smoke. It's sort of like a really heavy Amber, with a high ABV.

Delivered to me at a bar in a mug with a tan head and dark brown. Taste is very roasted malt with a nice hop twang up front. Some black licorice and some brown sugar in middle. Chaulky and sweeter finish. This brew has a nice mouthfeel. It's a winner.
