Poured into thistle glass. Dark brown and clear, showing deep garnet/ruby in light with a minimal fizzy off-white head that dissipates into a thin rim of fizz. Smells like...Grape Nuts cereal. And that's a good thing, in this case. Nutty, crackery, slightly caramelized malt with a tiny hint of hops at the end. Can't wait to taste this, with a nose like that...and I am not disappointed. Sweet, crackery caramel malts are all over the place, with warming alcohol hiding in the background between a pinch of bittering herbal hop at the end. Mouthfeel is full but smooth, a bit sticky. Delicious.

I really do like trying microbrews...and I was sure happy to try this one from a brewer called Founders Brewing with the happy title of, Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale.
Out of the bottle it pours a very nice, dark amber color. Although it pours out a nice head, it has no staying power and little to no lacing. Smell-wise it was rich and aromatic with hints of almonds, distinct roasted malt, and even slighter hints of caramel. It felt thick and bold sloshing around, not watery at all - very bold, but it did leave a strong aftertaste I didn't quite like. As far as the taste, I think it was bogged down with the overpowering flavor of burnt malt, rather than a lighter roasted flavor - it just took away something from what was otherwise a pleasant experience. Overall, it was outstanding and I was saddened to only have had two of these.
