A- Dark cloudy brown body with a sticky tan head. Almost looks like muddy water with a nice head.
S- Caramel malts, roasted malts, a hint of cocoa powder and coffee, a noticeable piney hop aroma.
T- Very smooth, easy drinking malty flavor. Medium and dark malts combine with some interesting sweet flavors and a definite hop presence. A little bit of smokiness is there too and I really like that there is some hops with the malt at the forefront.
M- Very smooth with medium carbonation and a medium-full body. Coats the mouth with exceptional mouthfeel.
O- One of the better scotch ales I have tried. Good malt flavors, good hop presence, great feel.

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.
