Founders Dirty Bastard

Brewery: Founders Brewing Company
Country: USA
ABV: 8.5%
Style: Scottish Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy
Other Notes: 50 IBUs. Scotch Style Ale

Brewer Description: (from bottle) So good it’s almost wrong. Dark ruby in color and brewed with seven varieties of imported malts. Complex in finish, with hints of smoke and peat. Paired with a malty richness and a right hook of hop power to give it the bad attitude that a beer named Dirty Bastard has to live up to. Ain’t for the wee lads.

Intro: A 12 fl. oz. bottle, bottled on 4th October 2018. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: A clear amber copper orange colour with a one finger tanned head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, sweet artificial cherry, cotton candy, plum, prunes, light roast, chocolate and caramel.
Taste: Roasted malts, lightly sweet, caramel, burnt sugar, smoke, light peat with a light lasting bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Wow, this was much better than expected and I enjoyed this even more than Backwoods Bastard, especially the aroma which impressed me.
