4.18/5 rDev +3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Presentation: Awesome label with eye-catching colors and phenomenal graphics. The label gives brewery info and web info, Neck label has Founders logo, ABV info, and IBU info.
Appearance: Allowed Dirty Bastard to warm for 15min before decanting from 12oz bottle into 16oz snifter. DB pours out a deep ruby amber color with a 1 finger light tan head of medium density. Head retention was rather short 1min 15sec before fading to a thin bubbly ring and coating. Lacing was very nice.
Smell/Aroma: DB smells of sweet toasted caramel malts with slight hints of dark fruit. Bready aromas also enter the nose with hints of chocolate as well as a little alcohol reminder that this is 8.5%.
Flavor/Taste: Taste is of sweet toasted caramel along with a toasted chocolate malt profile that turns slightly bitter with a definite smoked dark fruit essence. Finishes a bit bitter with a toasty malt aftertaste. Delicious.
MouthFeel/Drinkability: On the heavier side of medium bodied with a creamy chewy mouthfeel. A perfect amount of carbonation Extremely drinkable.
Overall/Comments: DB was my first offering from Founders and I was not disappointed. DB is a great Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy that is a bit more sweet and a bit less smokey than others that I have sampled. Packed with flavor this goes down very easy! Consumed 3/26/13. Classified as a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy at 8.5% ABV.

This scotch ale pours a deep brownish mahogany hue with a very slight off white head that leaves a thin film and substantial lacing. The aroma is deep, rich, and sweet. Lots of burnt sugar caramel and toffee notes plus a little vanilla and alcohol. It is definitely a thicker side of medium bodied beer with lots of coating sweetness. The flavor is amazing. Lots of rich malts following the profile set up by the nose. There is a little bitterness on the tail that just makes one want to dive back in for another sip of the awesome caramely malts on the front end. This is a great example of this style and always a favorite from one of my favorite breweries.
