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 aint fer the wee lads

KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2012
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.

Chucks 85th, Seattle. Thin small tan head, cloudy malty copper-amber. Malty caramel nose. Heavy clean scotch ale, bitter dark amber. Quite bitter profile, quite nice. Dark toffee caramel, slight metallic, deep bitter roast. Cool body, but some alcohol richness and bite on finish. Nice.

Pours a dark brown, almost black color with a decent sized, beige head. Smells of molasses, caramel malts, burned toffee and earth - rustic and inviting. Has a very low carbonation, silk on the tongue, very sweet till mid palate until the finish, in which a pungent dryness mingles together with the initial maltiness. Toffee malts with a rustic earth wrapping creates the taste foundation in this. Gets a very pleasant roasty touch during mid palate, enriching the malts, with a slowly evolving herbal note. After the swallow hops get way more noteable, producing an almost tongue numbing dryness of dried grass, replacing the sweetness by even more earthen toast in the finish. Pretty darn wild on the tongue, sweet, roasty, then dry- convincing in every of its aspects with a great balance.

Bottle @ Mortons Market. Rich, creamy, sweet maltiness, toffee, nuts, hint of bourbon like aroma & taste. Palate is so smooth and complex - both with rich flavor and a delightful aftertaste of smokey peat and holiday spices. This is now truly my favorite style...and, along with Old Chub, this is my favorite Scotch Ale. A perfect brew. Food-pairing Note: Try it with Large Black Cerignola Olives. Absolutely delicious!

Can from Sake no Taniguchi. Pours a deep dark ruby with lovely light tan foam. Rich sweet malt aroma, toffee, bourbon-like booze note, some peat smoke. Nice malt flavour, full and rich toffee and caramel, not too sweet, hits the back of the throat quickly with rising warmth, but leaves some sweet residue and smoke on the tongue. Really lovely and smooth to drink, full yet buoyed by hopping. I love this style and these flavours really ooze out and linger over the course of a whole can. Great stuff.

Sweet scents of malt and caramel. Pours a rich clear mahogany with tight tan head. Excellent lacing. Tastes of caramel malt and leather with a lingering sour hops finish. Viscous mouthfeel with mild carbonation. A substantial ale that I really like.

Niezłe scotch ale. Palony karmel, toffi, figi, śliwki suszone, lekka czekolada, nawet ser pleśniowy w tle ;) Lekka wędzonka, alko nie czuć co najwyżej lekko rozgrzewa. Generalnie słodkie piwo, ale nie tak bardzo ulepkowate, z doskonałą lekką wedzoną kontrą. To jest właśnie scotch ale. Sweet, burnt devil.

Bottle. Nice amber colour, clear with white head. Aroma of candi sugar, figs, berries and toasted malt. In taste sweet, fruity with caramel and dried fruits. Medium body, quite dry and lightly bitter finish. Really nice.

Une bire brune, avec une bonne carbonatation et une bonne opacit au niveau de la couleur. Au nez, beaucoup darmes avec notamment du sucre dorge, un peu de torrfaction, et des pices. En bouche, on retrouve beaucoup de saveurs de caramel, avec une petite impression damertume en fin de bouche. De bonnes impressions dpices proviennent galement du liquide. Le corps est rond, riche, sans tre trop lourd non plus, donnant un bel quilibre. Belle bire.
