Founders flagship beer. Dirty Bastard is an absolute beautiful beer to behold. Dark ruby in color and brewed with ten varieties of imported malts this beer continuously lives up to its reputation as a bold and powerful ale. Dirty Bastard is complex in the finish with hints of smoke and peat paired with a malty richness, finalized with a good bit of hop attitude. This beer “ain’t fer the wee lads”

Appearance is a dark reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma is somewhat sweet, with some licorice. Flavor is malty with that same bittersweet flavor noticeable in the aroma. Finish is smooth with a slight sweetness that sticks to the tongue. Quite pleasant, would definitely recommend.

Borresteijn (6499) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2010
33cl Bottle at Beer Temple. Hazy reddish amber colour, off white head. Aroma of caramel, some yeast, lots of malts, dried fruits. Resembles Great Divide Hibernation Ale, but lacks some hops. Flavour is sweet, malty, dried fruits, light spicy, yeasty, light bitter hoppy finish, bitterness lingers a bit. Medium to fullbodied, soft carbonation.

I’m surprised I have not rated this yet. Pours a dark brown/red. The aroma is woody and doughy. The flavor has a lot going on. Rich with chocolates, caramel, and some spiciness. Has a smokey finish with some bitterness. A real tasteful beer that you can tell was crafted with great care.

Cybercat (5174) - Georgia, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Pours a deep opaque chocolate-coffee brown with a fine-bubbled beige head. Aroma is malty with a chocolaty undertone and a hint of caramel. Flavor is lively, malty and spicy with an undertone of cinnamon candy and just a whisper of sweetness. Texture is edgy, tingly and sassy - it seems to dance on your tongue.

Distinguished by a rich, full body with sufficient hops to balance its malty sweetness. I like this beer ... alot.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle. 12 oz. Split with Vinny. Pours deep amber ruby with a thin, silky off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, scotch, roasted barley, rye, and hints of raisins. Body is mild, approachable and tasty; palate is warm and smooth. Finishes with a classic bit of scotch warming. Great scotch ale.

Nice scotch ale that isn’t overly smokey, but will still remind you which style it belongs to. I felt like the alcohol was presented a bit too strongly, but that’s not too major a problem. Overall, a good scotch ale, but there are others I’d rather be drinking, most notably the Dark Horse Scotty Karate.

bottle, dark amber-brown with medium brownish head. aroma contains caramel sweet chocolate and coffee, also some alcohol. it’s a decent beer, although it’s not very complex and unfortunately doesn’t have a long finish.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Pours ruby red with a tan head. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, and hints of dark fruits. Flavor is nice caramel, slightly nutty malty flavor, with a little bit of smoke, metal, and a slight bitterness that balances out the malty sweetness. Good stuff.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2010
(Bottled) Hazy dark ruby color with a small, but firm and reasonably lasting, creamy and lacy head. Very nice, grainy-malty, soft and sweetish aroma with lots of dried fruit and some strawberries. Flavor is berryish, sweet and dark-fruity with a tiniest ashy roastiness underneath. Quite full-bodied, very smooth and creamy palate. A beautifully balanced and enjoyable Scotch Ale.
