Barrel Aged Kilt Switch
A Note on This Beer
Like the rolling hills of Scotland, or the scenic, open expanses of Kentucky, today’s mashup brings the best of both worlds.
This finely aged, peated Scotch Ale swirls in the decadent sweetness of an award-winning Bourbon’s barrel. Introducing the latest batch of Barrel-aged Kilt Lifter from 903 Brewing!
The Sherman, Texas-based brew crew specializes in bigger, heavier-hitting beers — the previous vintage of Kilt Switch is a GABF award-winner— and this offering kicks those flavors up a notch in rich-sweet Bourbon goodness.
A mighty 11% ABV is also a two-handed sword of a boozy glass, filled with campfire and roasted malt notes. Not to be outdone, aging in Ironroot Republic Whiskey barrels lends hints of molasses-forward sweetness and brown sugar. The Texas based distillery is tried-and-true, having earned Whiskey Magazine's prestigious title of Craft Bourbon Producer of the Year in 2020!
With a dark amber appearance, a smooth, velvety mouthfeel, and complex flavors — this beer is fusion in a glass. If you’re a fan of Scotch Ales, barrel-aged beers, or Bourbon, you’ve found the highlander!

Very milky, but it's good.
Like a good Scottish ale with a bourbon added...crazy!
Almost tasted like I was just drinking whiskey and not an ale
One of my favorite styles only improved with barrel aging. Bourbon, molasses and brown sugar upfront with a malty, oaky and dark fruit finish. I wish that I had purchased more!
Full-bodied, a wee heavy, and super malty...just the caramely treat you expect from a great scotch ale.
It's good, not quite what I'm looking for. Definitely good though.
I wish I would have aged it a year, I should have bought more of them to try.
Massive nose of maple, birch sap, brandied cherries, sweet vermouth and espresso. Syrup-thick mouthfeel with flavors of toffee, butter brickle, Christmas pudding, treacle syrup and peated Scotch. Wishing I had another one of these in my cellar!
Very nice roasted malt aromas, with the whiskey barrel to back it up. Nice flavors of dark fruit, brown sugar or caramel. Sweet but not overly so, IMO. Good medium plus body. Very nice.
SO glad I bought three of these. Sweet, barrel-forward, malty goodness.
Too Sweet and the barrel got lost
What a great combination of a scotch ale with whiskey barrel aging. Each element came through in the aroma and flavor but with a really nice balance that made an excellent smooth full flavored beer.
This one was a gamble for me. I'm not usually a fan of whiskey barrel aged drinks. That being said, I'm glad I got this and wish I got more. Smooth ale up front mild whiskey burn going down. This stuff was damn good
The bourbon is strong with this one. So’s the caramel and dates, but good dates, not bad dates like in Raiders of the Lost Ark. 🍻
party in my mouth
Really delicious, notes of caramel and dates and figs and brown sugar. Almost more of a barleywine than a Scotch ale.
