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”

Pours dark amber with a medium head and great lacing. I feel a little spoiled having had the Backwoods Bastard before the Dirty Bastard. This ale has great amber malt flavor and a smooth finish. A great scotch ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ Tröls. I always love a scotch ale, especially a micro-brewed one. This is an average addition to the style, you won’t be disappointed but you won’t be blown away either.

Bottle in the Hemelvaart Bier Café, Bedale. Pours ruby with a fading tan head. Quite sweet with caramel notes before a very fruity bitter finish with pineapple. Alcohol is warming and pleasant. There’s some treacle and pear drop in there too. Nice.

Swaroga (1114) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2014
33cl butelka. OCZY : Piwo jest ciemne z odcieniami czerwieni i ciepłego brązu. Ma średniej wielkości piane o beżowym kolorze. NOS : mocne aromaty słodu o lekko podpalanych i dymionych odcieniach. Karmel, toffi i pralinka. Alkohol, wiśnie, suszone śliwki, nugat i pomarańcz. USTA : delikatnie gazowane i oleiste. Podobna konsystencja do mleka. Piwo jest słodkie o barwach czekolady i suszonych owoców. Te ostatnie nadaje delikatną kwaśność. Ale nie jest cierpka. Piwo ma głęboki i bardzo złożony smak. Pod koniec, wraz z gorzkością, wyłania się delikatny posmak cytrusowego orzeźwienia. Ale i tak gorzkością dominują barwy podpalane, podobne do pestki jabłka i alkoholu. Posmak podobny do suszonych i wędzonych owoców i piernika. ODCZUCIA : wreszcie udało mi się dorwać te bardzo znane piwo w świecie craftu amerykańskiego. Jest smaczne i świetnie skomponowane. Przyznam się, ze oczekiwałem czegoś w stylu Arogant Bastard z Stone, który jest również mocno chmielony. Ale i tak jest spoko. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 5/10

CacheManyHose (110) - HONG KONG - MAR 5, 2014
Pours a beautiful translucent red ruby-brown. Smell is faint, sweet candy sugar and a bit of raisin. Taste is hoppy and maple syrup sweet with an almost medicinal rye flavour. Ends on a sharp acidic note.

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep bronze body, little clarity, small beige head persists. Rich complex nose; moist-cakey malts, burnt caramel, dried fruits, Scotch whiskey undertones & complexities. Very full thick, creamy on the palate, chewy. Low carbonation & boozy warmth. Lots of burnt caramel & roasted nutty malt upfront, notes of plum, raisin, earthy spice, with Whiskey barrel notes & boozy twang. A serious sipper. Carries more weight than expected for abv. Damn tasty!

Bottle - pours dark brownish red with an average head. Has a malty aroma and taste of smoked wood and cherries. Very rich and smooth on the palate. This is one excellent beer! Is there anything Founders can’t do with beer?
