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”

Gangstergafje (1349) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2017
29-12-2017; bottle; at home (bought at Saveur Bière, as part of their December 2017 discovery box). The beer looks very nice. The colour of the beer is a very nice coppery brown, with a nice ruby red glow. The beer is quite clear. On top of the beer there is a nice layer of light brown soft foam. Foam retention is average. A nice thick creamy drape and some lacing are left on the glass. Very nice. The smell of the beer is also very nice. It is not extremely strong though. There are some nice malt aromas, with some touches of caramel and toffee. I also smell a nice touch of fruity hops, also a bit earthy. They are a nice match for the malts. There is a tiny smoked touch. This gives a nice savoury edge to the smell. Quite nice, and also special. I don't know many beers like this. The taste of the beer is very nice. It is a lovely sweet beer. I taste sweet malts, a touch of liquorice, smoke, peat, toffee and caramel, but also loads of red fruits and some tropical fruit. The hops give a nice earthy and slightly zesty bitterness. Yeast gives a nice fruity and slightly creamy note. Typical top fermented yeast flavour, which is nice. The beer is perfectly balanced. Nice. The palate of the beer is nice. Medium-full body, smooth and slightly creamy texture, not to heavy, and medium-high carbonation. The finish of the beer is nice. It has a nice alcohol warmth, alcohol flavour, fruits and some lovely hoppy bitters. All in all, a lovely beer. They can be proud to have this as their flagship.

Lekki zawód. Liczylem, że będzie fajny scotch ale, a jest taki sobie. W aromacie czuć głównie rodzynki i, niestety, alkohol. Słabo to rokowało. Piwo jest ciemnobursztynowe, z jasną pianą, prezentuje się całkiem ładnie. W smaku jest trochę przegazowane, ma konsystencję prawie, że wody, jest słodko-gorzkie. Można wypić, ale nie jest to ambrozja. Za mocno czuć jednak alkohol, goryczka dość średnia, trochę oblepiająca. Piwo powinno poleżeć, bo za bardzo alkohol w nim dochodzi do głosu.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 W aromacie suszone owoce, nuty biszkoptowe, przypalony chleb, czuć lekko alkohol. W smaki wytrawny, delikatna słodycz w tle. Na finiszu mocna gorycz. Treściw, intensywne, alkohol średnio ukryty, średnio pijalne, zbyt gorzkie dla mnie. Dobre piwo, ale zdecydowanie #teamgoryczka

GoddamnNoise (210) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - DEC 17, 2017
355 ml. bottle @ Home. Aroma: quite intense aromas of caramel, toasted malts, brown sugar, molasses, dark dried fruits (prunes, raisins), sweet alcohol, overripe fruit. Hints of honey, porto wine, rum. Hints of malts and toasted malts in the background when the beer warmed up. Appearance: deep ruby to deep brown/mahogany color with reddish-ruby highlights. Beige and very creamy foam. Medium to high head thickness. Medium to high retention. Medium Brussels' lacing. It's too dark to tell for sure, but it seems it has low to medium hazyness. Taste: medium to high sweetness, low bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of caramel, toasted malts, brown sugar, molasses, overripe fruit, dark dried fruits (mainly prunes and raisins), sweet alcohol. Hints of rum and porto wine, dates. Balance is toward the sweet side. Palate: medium body, oily-silky texture, low carbonation, very long sweet finish with medium sweetness and flavors of sweet alcohol, caramel, toffee, toasted malts, brown sugar, molasses, dark dried fruits (raisins, prunes, dates). Alcohol is noticeable due to its sweetness and some throat warming. There is no astringency from the dark malts in this beer. Palate: appearance is very good. Aromas and flavors are very good and sweet but not cloying, with caramel, toffee, toasted malts, brown sugar, molasses, dark dried fruits (prunes and raisins) and sweet alcohol. Not my favourite style, but it's a very good and enjoyable beer. Not much hop aromas nor flavors. Very complex.

Puszka 355ml. Kolor piękny ciemnobursztynowy z przebłyskami, klarowne, piana kremowa pięknie osiada na szkle. Aromat generalnie suszone owoce, śliwki, rodzynki. W smaku także suszone owoce, słodkie co w połączeniu z goryczką daje wyśmienity efekt. Alkohol ukryty genialnie, bardzo dobre piwo, mocno pijalne.

troopie (2497) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2017
Draught. Great looking beer dark ruby with off white head. Light Aroma, malt and smoke. Flavour had a little alcohol burn covered quickly with chocolate and malt. Lekker finish with a hop spike and smoke

bjorn77 (846) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 15, 2017
Aromat: intensywność średnia w kierunku dużej, nuty zbożowej, subtelnie suszone i kandyzowane owoce, rodzynki, figi, karmel. Wygląd: wygląda cudnie, piękna czysta czerwona miedź i bardzo wysoka, idealnie równa i regularna warstwa, kremowej, drobnopęcherzykowej piany, która długo się utrzymuje. Smak: typowy dla stylu, nie jest ani za słodkie, ani za wytrawne. Delikatny karmel, dużo suszonych owoców, rodzynki, daktyle, figi, dużo ciemnych i świeżych owoców, zbozowe posmaki bazy słodowej, wszystko kontrowane całkiem niezłą, ziołową i leciutko paloną goryczką. Bardzo pijalne, pije się lekko i przyjemnie. Dobrze zbalansowane. Złożone. Odczucie: alkohol ukryty perfekcyjnie, ciała dużo, wysycenie niskie, pełne, finisz gorzkawy. Całość: bardzo smaczne i stylowe piwo, świetny balans i kompozycja, wysoka pijalność mimo mocy i blg, Goryczka duża, ale tu akurat gra jak trzeba, naprawdę zdradziecko lekkie. Bardzo dobre. 7/5/7/4/15
