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”

Bottle into a pint glass. pours a deep ruby, with a small tan head which quickly fades. Good lacing. Nose is malt and peat smoke. Taste is wonderfully complex, with a slightly sweet, smoky, malty flavor which deepens as it warms. The reference standard for Scotch ales. Outstanding.

Fantastisk sötmaltig med all tänkbar mörk choklad, fudge & grejer som en Ben & jerrys glass. Man känner väl av alkoholens sötma. Men alkoholen blir inte stickig utan balanserad jämt ut. Tyvärr är min sorry bastard lagrad så de 50 IBU's har nog gjort sitt. Man märker att det är en Scotch Ale, en riktigt bra sådan! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aika tanakkaa viinaa, mutta onpa maku kohillaan. Haju ja väri hyvät. Suutuntuma mukava, ja alkoholia reilusti. Hyvä iltajuoma.
