Long story short I fell asleep and scorched the living hell out if my wort. I pitchhed yeast anyway and fermentation took off.

Why would you dump it before trying the finished product?

Search for some of the "don't dump it" threads- it MIGHT be undrinkable if you keep it, but it WILL be undrinkable if you dump it.

Do you mean you scortched the grain/LME/DME, or you boiled down the wort to burnt nothingness?

If it tastes scorched, it isn't going away. If the final product tastes bad, just dump it.
