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”

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. The beer itself is a deep, transparent ruby color with a small off-white head that froths up on the initial pour before fading to a ring around the glass. Toasted bread, cocoa powder, a bit of peat, and some dark fruit notes create the aroma. Each sip starts out a little bit sweet, with a touch of caramel and cocoa up front. Toasted bread, dried cherries, and some nuts round out the flavor profile. The mouthfeel is fairly balanced, with carbonation that falls between creamy and crisp and a medium body. A slight stickiness sits on my lips after each sip. This is a well made beer from Founders. The Scotch Ale style is not really for me, though.

Copenhagen 28/6 2015. 35,5 cl bottle from Meny. A grinning presumably Scottish, dirty bastard on the label. Pours clear dark brown with off-white head. Dissipates to thin layer of foam almost immediately. Strong aroma of fermented dark fruits, sweetness, oak and caramel. Soft carbonation. Taste is sweet at first - caramel and drops - a little boozy alcohol. Some whisky in the aftertaste. Nice brown, boozy sensation - and pretty nice for Americans imitating the Scots.

SkillsFactory (149) - ITALY - JUN 25, 2015
Rossa scura con riflessi arancioni, limpida, schiuma color nocciola non molto persistente. Aroma di fichi e uvetta, nocciole e rabarbaro, zucchero caramellato, liquorosa, leggermente affumicata. Al palato gli esteri fruttati lasciano subito spazio ai malti tostati che portano la bevuta verso l'amaro, nota alcolica finale. Gli esteri fruttati si ripresentano anche nel retrolfatto. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata.

Bottle. Pours is dark ruby with medium beige head. Spicy aroma of caramel, raisins, figues, hints of vanilla and some yeast, very pleasant. Taste is light bitter, medium sweet with heavy fruity flavour, mainly figues, raisins and coconut. Full body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Very good!

Promises a lot with lots of malts, hops and even peat but is real disappointment for me. Medium mouth. Lots of malts but something bothers me and tjis beer just is not so enjoyable.
