    Picked this up the other day and had one last night. It's a scotch ale, dark in color, heavy in flavor. Very complex mixture of tastes, hard to pinpoint one overall flavor, almost like a rasiny, date with coffee, was really hard to pinpoint.

    At 8.5% you did not taste the content, I don't think I could drink more than 1 of these at a time, which did the trick since I only wanted to have 1.

    At the brewery my group had a half pitcher of dirty bastard and half of their IPA. Mixed it and it was the best we drank all day.

    I really like their IPA, I can't believe the % is so low with all of the flavor it has.

    Out of all the Bastards, Backwoods Bastard is my favorite. Its aged in Bourbon barrels for added flavor.

    Just picked this up today and am having my first one now. Like lk said it's hard to pinpoint one overall flavor but it's very good.

    This is a Scotch Ale or a Wee Heavy. These tend to have a "Scotch" hint to them due to the malts. My wife and I made a Scotch Ale last January and just finished it up a few weeks. Ours was closer to 9.25%.

    Just picked some of that up, hard to find sometimes.
