COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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”

A magical scotch bag of raisinets. A beautiful opaque dark ruby in the light, pours with a small head and some lacing. Smells sweet and peat. Tastes like the aforementioned sweeties with so much grown-up behind it. Just a touch of smoke, plenty of toffee, choccy and fruit along with the perfect bitterness that never lets on about the 50ibus and just the tiniest hint of the 8.5%. A session beer that will end your session well early. Hot contender for my favourite beer from an almost flawless brewery. Git in ma baelly wee man.

MNAle (114) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Dark fruit aroma with a bit of spice, roasty and sweet. Dark brown / ruby color, with some haziness. Visible carbonation. Tall tan creamy head, receding slowly. Nice lacing down the glass. Thick and smooth feel. Initial taste follows the aroma... lots of malty complexity, a little sweet, with dark fruits. The finish has the bittering hops assert themselves into the aftertaste, which seem a bit overdone or overhopped for a scotch ale.

jampura (46) - FINLAND - JUN 24, 2016
Kevyempi kuin imperial stout, mutta makua löytyy. Hieman viinainen jälkimaku, ei häiritsevä.

Nocturne (1716) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Keg at Common, Manchester. Hazy brown shade. Thin head. Big candy-ish fruity notes, tobacco and sticky maltiness all the way through. Quite an earthiness to it as well. Good example of the style.

Buukwurm (38) - California, USA - JUN 21, 2016

McSherman (485) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2016
Farbe: Dunkles rot-braun, erinnert an Kirschsaft, heller wenig beständiger Schaum. Geruch: Malz, Holz, leicht säuerlich, etwas Rauch Geschmack: malzig, säuerlich, leicht holzig und rauchig, zum Abgang dann auch noch hopfen- (und röst-?) bitter. Recht alkoholisch, aber nicht störend. Gut!

ALIBALI (360) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2016
In der Nase viel Holz, Whisky und Vanille. Anschließend im Mund schlank. Erinnerungen an Wein, Fass und Whisky werden geweckt. Erst leicht süß, dann schnell radikal whiskeyscharf. Der Nachhall alkoholisch wärmend und vielfältig. Schwer!!! Honig!!! Wenig Hopfen!!!! On Tap in der CRAFT BEER BAR Hannover.25cl/4,40Euro.

Linnet (1601) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2016
Butterscotch, jam, raisins, alcohol, a whiff of wet dog, light coffee, and caramel. Ruby colour, medium beige head, lacing. Heavy sweetness, medium bite, lightly salty. Malt forward, yet it packs a hop punch. More Than usual for the style, ABV well hidden. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, oily feel, salty, sweet and warming finish. Good example of an American take on the style.

Oscbert (1227) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Strong malty aroma, caramel, toffee, bread, raisin, smoke. Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown color with small off white head Smoke more prevelant in flavor, woody, char, raisin, toffee. A bit bitter. Medium full body with medium low co2, lingering woody bitterness in finish. Aroma smells great. The flavor is a bit bitter in my opinion. I like sweeter scotch ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
