It poured a deep amber with a red hue. There was not much head formation but it had a strong lacing.
This had a really nice aroma. I first picked up some hops and roasted malt.
This had a good balance of malt and hops, dry and sweet, etc. It had a dry roasted malt flavor at times, but towards the end a caramel taste came up. There was a hoppy bite at the end of each drink.
M/F: for the most part it had a dry nature, sometimes bitter. It produced a malty aftertaste that lingered - which was not a bad thing.
D: this drank like an everyday type beer. This is something I wouldn't mind having in my frig.
With a name like Dirty Bastard, I was expecting a more aggressive flavor. The flavor was great. It did have subtle complex flavors, but I wanted something more nitty gritty.

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.
