This beer poured a hazy reddish brown color and formed light tan foamy head that left circular lace as it subsided. A medium amount of carbonation and some sediment is present. A complex aroma of malt, caramel, raisins and other dark fruit. Not as heavy an aroma as others, but more in the mix if you will. The flavor was of malt, caramel, slight bit of chocolate and a hint of raisin. A slightly lighter body than I would expect for this style and slightly sweet finish. The alcohol is well hidden in this one. Also best if had at cellar temp or just slightly cooler to help draw out more of it's character
Unique smokey peat aroma with caramel and malt taste and finishes with a kick of hoppy bitterness. One of the best scotch ales. ShivanDragon (4027) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2017

On tap at Hippo Glasgow. Dark red/brown beer, off-white head. Light malty, fruit scent. Taste is rich malt, apple, citrus, dried fruit, toffee. Light, tangy aftertaste that gets a bit sickly as you go through it. The taste of alcohol is more than I’d like but otherwise it’s nice. ricke49 (31) - La Pine, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Not many 12 oz bottles can be pleasurably consumed over a one-hour period. Dirty Bastard though was made for such a session. Complex, hearty, delicious & with enough bitterness to keep things interesting.

On tap at "The Good Life" Massapequa Park. Dark murky brown color with a boozy and earthy aroma. Taste: plums, apricots, molasses, bourbon vanilla and oak. Pretty much a toned-down version of Backwoods Bastard. WABeerFiend (413) - - MAY 8, 2017
