A Note on This Beer
Whiskey lovers and Scottish Ale fans have something in common: they aren’t afraid of a little sweetness. Thirsty Dog Brewing hits all the beloved brown liquor flavors of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar in elegant balance with their Twisted Kilt Scottish Style Export Ale.
Thirsty Dog achieves this melange of flavors through an extra long boil, caramelizing the malts and enhancing the robust burnt sugar flavors, without syrupy-sweet malt character. Popular beer writer Ashley “The Beer Wench” Routson names Twisted Kilt as the top Scottish Ale to try in the style.
A hazy aroma of smokey apricots and caramel entrance the senses, amplified further in the taste. Flavors of brown sugar crusted scone and hints of plum dominate, with a smooth mouthfeel, and touch of alcohol. A dry finish compliments the earthy peat notes in aroma and taste, increasing this beer’s phenomenal drinkability.
Managing to hit that “sweet spot” with nuanced balance of caramelized malts, Thirsty Dog has crafted two community Scotch Ales with Wulver and Twisted Kilt. Making it out West for the first time, Twisted Kilt is sure to impress Scotch fans of any degree.
