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 is also a pretty dead-on description of Monday Night’s 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.
Other Notes: Brewed with Columbus and Willamette hops and cherrywood-smoked malt, chocolate malt, and roasted barley.
Currently available on draft and in 6-pack bottles.
