I'll give this beer 4's all around. For a Scott Ale/Wee Heavy, this beer is great. I drank this right after having an IPA brew, so the first thing I noticed was the strong malt presence and caramel. Great mouthfeel and perfect carbonation. If you like a beer that's sweet, malty, and heavy, Dirty Bastard is a must try.

12oz bottle, pours a deep brown with reddish tinges, thinner foamy tan head holds decent retention and leaves a little lacing on the glass. Aromas are earthy peat, malty, brown sugar, caramel, raisin, toffee, booze. Tastes are earth, peat, brown sugar, molasses, toffee, faint chocolate as it warms, a little bit of spice from the hops. Mouth-feel is smooth and creamy while being medium bodied. Overall, always a favorite of mine for the style. Well balanced with good complexity.
