Review from Tasting Notes at Taco Mac
Bottle poured into Tulip Shaped Glass
Appearance: Dark Amber, almost like a very dark purple. No head at all; it disappeared pretty quickly.
Smell: sweet to the nose, caramel, liquorice, and a hint of dark fruits like plums.
Taste: The taste follows the aroma. It's fairly sweet and malty, caramel-like, taste reminds me of liquorice candy with dark fruit notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a sweet malty finish.
Overall: This is a great Scotch Ale. It has a fairly complex taste and it's pretty sweet and malty, but well balanced. I would definitely order this again if I am in the mood; although, this beer is not necessarily my favorite style.
Serving type: bottle

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.
