Thirsty Dog Brewing Company Twisted Kilt Scottish Style Export Ale

This beer pours a medium brown in color and is translucent. It has a massive head.  The aroma is malty, roasted malt, nut, a bit of light coffee.  The taste is massively sour.  The wonderful potential of flavors in the aroma ends up only being found in the aftertaste.  5.3% ABV.  The bottle had the yeast at the bottom and that must be what is providing the sourness.  I don't know if this is an off bottle or not.  I have to pour this down the drain, it is undrinkable.

Luckily I had two bottles of this brew.  The first bottle was an off bottle, it must have secondarily fermented itself into a sour monster.  The second bottle pours the same color but with much less carbonation and no head.  The aromas are the same, a little darker, a little more coffee.  This time the taste follows the aromas perfectly and it is deep and dark with no sourness, actually a bit of sweetness.  This is a good beer and is in fact reminiscent of some Scottish ales I have had.

The Thirsty Dog Brewing Company is in Akron, Ohio.
