A: A dark, deep copper color. No head to speak of, shows very little carbonation

S: An aroma that is rich in a roast like scent.

T: Strong alcohol taste. Starts with bitter hoppiness, not overly bitter, just enough to give you a bite, ends rather malty with a lingering alcohol taste.

M: Very low on the carbonation category, which makes this very easy and light on the tongue/mouth. Creamy.

O: It's pretty heavy on the alcohol taste, but that's what the style is. After all it is a form of a strong ale. I enjoyed it at the bar I went to for lunch.

A: Brown/mahogany with a tan head

S: Roasted malts, figs, caramel notes, brown sugar

T: Unbelievable malt profile! This hits all elements - roasty, sweet, raisins, figs, slight alcohol burn.

M: Creamy, medium bodied. You probably don't want to drink several of these, but for a wee heavy, it satisfies!

O: A great beer. I am not a huge fan of this style, but Dirty Bastard sets the bar for me.
