This is some of the best Scotchales around.................................. SturmWulf (65) - USA - JUL 18, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Received in a bottle from a friend! :) I’ve heard a lot about this local small brewery and finally get to sample one of their beer. Rich, strong aroma. Poured a deep red-brown. Creamy small tan head that remained a very thin cap to the end., Left nice lacing. Rich, robust, slightly smoky flavor with very malty, chocolate. roasted malt and earthy taste. Very full body, thick texture, very soft carbonation with a very nice flavorful finish. This beer is one of the best ones I’ve ever enjoyed. Founders has done a great job with Dirty Bastard. I tried this in a tulip. I will definitely add this to my normal rotation of favorite beer. If you like beer dark, rich, thick and full of great flavor this is the beer for you! To me it is excellent!! ScotYankBard (16) - USA - FEB 8, 2008
This is one of my favorite Scottish Ales, and they’re my favorite. The aroma is caramely, malty, slightly toasty and slightly alcoholic. It has a wonderful Scotch Ale color. The flavor matches the style while still incorporating hops more than many other Scotch Ales. The palate is smoother though still retains a gritty heaviness. Overall.......YEAH!!! I LOVE IT. GREAT JOB FOUNDERS. fschouten (2) - Manteno, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2008 does not count
A great scotch ale and pours with little head. Bitterness in the aftertaste with little hint of the alcohol content. Great with food or as an evening treat. NearABeer (8) - COKATO, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2011 does not count

A creamy beer with heavy caramel tones. The scent and flavor are refreshing and satisfying.

My favorite. The taste is wonderful and the after taste is great also. Founders struck gold when they brewed this up. NewToCraft (2) - - JUL 10, 2013 does not count
Love this offering from Founders! Along with Breakfast Stout and the elusive KBS, this is among my favorites currently. Ionlyrate5s (103) - New York, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Really nice caramel aroma, along with tight head and brown amber color. This tasted really malty but despite its malty sweetnes, which was wonderful, it finished nice and dry. Not cloying whatsoever. Perfect balance of this malt forward brew.
