Game Day Beer Review: Founders Brewing Co. Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy
(8.5% ABV). Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a stemless wine glass, Dirty Bastard pours a medium brown -- more like a ruby-like red when held up to the light -- with a very thin white line of foam. The beer smells mainly of sweet roasted malts. Dirty Bastard is a bit sweet for my tastebuds, with some malts and dark fruits apparent, and a tea-like flavor and astringency on the finish. It's lightly carbonated, and the alcohol is well hidden until the beer begins to warm. This is not a session beer, but it is very good: B+.
