Backlog. Sample. Caramel, toast, nuts, resin, molasses, some smoke. Medium sweet, moderate bitter. Kronhjort1996 (132) - Århus C, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2018
Hælder mørkebrun og hazy, uden hoved
Aroma er ovre i toffee, dog med noter af røg.
Smagen er sødlig, med en røget eftersmag
full body, en anelse sticky, soft carbonation, long røget, hoppy ish finish,
En skotsk ale, hvor 10 malte, og hops er brugt. Røgen går igen, uden at være dominant.

Waited till the bottle warmed then poured. Little head, probably due to my preferred light pour, dark in color, enough for no light to pierce. Smells like malty heaven, reminds me of Dead Guy Ale, but +. Good quick hop taste upon tounge then a malty caramel avalance. Mouthfeel is thick, which is nice. I can imagine Vikings drinking beer like this after a conquest lol. Good shit. Very balanced Myonlyvice (381) - DENMARK - JAN 21, 2018
Deep ruby-red with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma: Scotch whiskey, caramel, hops, campfire smoke, hints of sweet spices. Sweet but well balanced with a bit of hop bitternes, hints of toastyness and smoke. Smooth mouthfeel. This might be the perfedt scotch ale!

.Appearance: Dark ruby, head is off white. Looks fantastic.
.Aroma: You can smell it as soon as it is was poured into the glass. Scotch booziness, roasted malt, caramel, cherry, dark fruit, vanilla. Wow.
.Taste: Upfront - roasted malt, well rounded sweet fruitiness. Notes of cherry, vanilla, fig, raisin, caramel coming through. Somewhat alcoholic - scotch barrel booziness. A very noticeable bitterness towards the end of the sip - balancing out the sweetness. Warming.
.Mouthfeel: Sticky, creamy, rich, medium body, spot on carbonation - giving off a slight 'zing.' Very easy drinking.
.Bottom Line: To start - Beautiful in the glass. Aroma and flavor are just outstanding. Be prepared for a big, powerful, delicious malt bill. Top notch scotch ale. piraat83 (51) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Pours a very dark ruby color. Scotch and oak taste with sight brown sugar and raisin notes. Not too boozy or overpowering for a strong scotch ale. Great standard Scotch ale. GarrettB (1734) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 12, 2018
March 21st, 2015 - Sassily named like San Diego's foundational Stone beers, Founder's Dirty Bastard is a chewy, salty thing. With a black dark body and a deep, malty nose, it offers little hints at first about the flavor profile. But that flavor is lovely and dark, rich with veins of licorice and soy sauce. More impressive than these, though, is the balance between the body and flavor, which are brilliantly engineered to match. Maarten1993 (1435) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2018
Drank with Tijs @ Piet Huisman 05-01-2018. Sweet, rich, very good. Nice hints of smoke and herbyness.
