Founder's Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale

It is plain to see Founder's is the current "It" brewery by the product ratings handed out for offerings that are not all that remarkable. The ruby hue is visually appealing and the nutty, oak and molasses aroma is intriguing, but the flavor does not live up to the hype. You've got your familiar Scotch Ale notes and a hint of hop bite, but it all gets washed away by the boozy finish. This is doubly disappointing because I could have gone with a sixer of Schlafly Scotch Ale or Odell 90 Shilling, and saved $2.00.
