On tap, dark brown color. Doesn’t seem like 10.3%. Strong scotch flavors kind of overwhelm the rest of the flavors. A decent brew.

Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Appearance: Pours an amber caramel color with hints of orange and a decent head. Smell: Dark fruit, caramel malts and brown sugar. Taste: A bit of tart cherries, green apple plumb and brown sugar. Then toasty caramel malt molasses and a shot of scotch whiskey dumped in there. This one I must get more of! Mouthfeel: Extremely thick and sticky, very chewy, like a Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy should be. Drinkability: I love this style of beer but if you tried to session this your gut may explode =) Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2004
On tap: Not hazy, dark brown. The 10.3% is well hidden, it was some what warming, however. It wasn’t as complex as some of the other new things coming out of Founder’s.

Muddy brown with a small light brown head. nice roasted malt aroma. full bodied and malty with toffee and caramel most noticeable , alcohol is very well hidden. A fine brew

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2004 although i enjoyed sipping on this beer, i was a little surprised at how tame it seemed...alcohol was not very apparent, especially for a beer with over a 10% abv....roasted coffee flavoring; very similar to the original, but not as appetizing. nonetheless, a must try

On tap at Founders. Despite the rather unoriginal name, this is an amped-up version of the Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale rather than an incredibly hopped IPA as its better known namesake is. The malts take top billing here; big caramels and fruit compete with hints of piney hops. Toast and coffee become apparent after a few sips, and the beer becomes almost candylike over time. Alcohol is not very noticeable. Like a big, fruity I2PA without the hops.
