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”

Bottle. Pours a very dark Ruby colour. Aroma. Smells a bit like espresso. Nice Scotch Flavour, very complex flavours, not my kind of beer, but still alright.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 ABV - 8.5 IBU - 50 .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. .Overall: A. .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.

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.

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.

Rozpuszczona landryna, obrzydliwstwo. Mdłości ogarniaja. Nic szlachetnego w tym nie ma, wstrętny ulepek.

kaserov (1103) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 4, 2018
Color marrón oscuro, rojizo si le da la luz, turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de dos dedos de grosor y buena retención. Carbonatación media. Textura oleosa. Aroma a caramelo, melaza, lúpulo herbal y alcohol. En boca hay caramelo, melaza, toques herbales, dark fruits y alcohol. No es abiertamente dulce. Amargor final moderado pero presente. Postgusto alcohólico y a caramelo. No entiendo qué hace en un top 50 de Scotch Ales. A partir del primer trago no tiene nada que decir.

Pours dark brown with a creamy head which regenerates easily with a good swirl. Aroma of malts, peat, lots of alcohol and something almost disgusting like... Vomit!? Not too sweet, hoppy long lasting finish, but cloying. Very nice to the palate, full body, creamy and thick. I really struggled to finish this though.

msbernac (2920) - Krakow, POLAND - DEC 31, 2017
Can Aroma-toffee, caramel Appearance-copper, clear, beige foam Taste-medium bitterness, medium sweetness, lightly sour, Palate-medium body, sticky, average carbonation, long finish, Overall-very good
