3.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brownish amber. Aroma is light. Taste is smooth and very drinkable. Overall it is quite good but a little lacking in some aspects.
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2017 Pours a foggy brown with an amber tint with 1 finger of head with good lacing. Smell is complex caramel, very malty in a good way, toffie, and roast. Taste is rich with a smooth finish malty, smokey, and slightly hoppy. I normally drink Belhaven when I want a scotch ale, not anymore. gr_pa (846) - siemianowice, POLAND - NOV 21, 2017

a great drink; malty complex flavor; full body, creamy, soft carbonation, medium sweetness, long finish Subliminal64 (222) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2017
Where Purchased: 347ml bottle from Meijer in Michigan
Consumed: from a pilsner glass
Aroma: Smells malty and sweet with hoppy note.Seems complex.
Appearance : unfiltered dark gold brown with lots of head that disappears within the first few sips. No lacing, but lots of lively carbonation.
Taste: very sweet and malty with an underlying hop note. Would never guess the IBU was 50 or the ABV was 8.8. Impressive. Lots of complex tastes yet easy to drink.
Palate : full body. Slight bitter with sweet aftertaste. Great carbonation.
Overall: this was a complex beer. Lots of malts. Easy drinking, and would never know it was as boozy as it was. I was glad to try and will buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2017 ,3 litre Bottle from Total Wine Bocca Park. Brown with medium offwhite head. Roasted malt aroma and taste. hman43 (1775) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2017
It pours dark brown and it is fairly clear. It has a tan head with low head retention. A full malt aroma, complex and inviting. It has some caramel and moderate smoky elements. The are also low aromas of alcohol as well. There are flavors of caramel and nuts. There is a low roasted character to it with low smoke. There is moderate bitterness and a very low dried fruit (Plums) element. It has a moderately full body with some alcohol warmth. Overall, a complex malty beer that highlights malts with a bit of light smoke. A great drinking Wee Heavy. Paulwasser (3) - Alabama, USA - NOV 11, 2017 does not count
This is one of Founders best and amongst all other Scotch Ales I feel it superior to most others. I have tried over fifteen scotch ales and this is the one I most frequently purchase when I want an excellent Scotch Ale that wont break the bank. Gorgosh (517) - SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2017
Utan motstånd uppstår heller ingen framåtrörelse. Utan brittisk ale hade heller inte resten av världens ölkultur varit på samma ställe som den är i dag. Dirty bastard är något att ta spjärn emot när ölkartor ska revideras och nya smakupplevelser ska kalibreras. Hela skapelsen är otroligt fint avrundad i alla hörn. Kraftig rostad malt bärs upp av alkoholstyrka utan att bli spritig och eftersmaken är långt ihållande smakfull och bränd.
