Commercial Description

"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."

    This was a mother of a beer but in a good way. This beer pores a dark ruby red smells of carmel with some heat to it if that makes sense. Being a scotch lover this beer reminded me of scotch with a slight hop note to it. This was a fantastic and with the high abv a mother load of a beer too drink but to sum it up I loved it.

    [Best served in a Snifter]

    The pour was a murky medium brown with a cooper hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown rocky head that dissipated quickly but left a thin layer of foam that created some fair lacing.

    The aroma was a bit on the sweet side with roasted bread malts, an herbal hop and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of raisons, molasses and a mild alcohol scent.

    The taste was sweet and malty with a hint of molasses in the beginning and finished a bit bitter, with a touch of raisons and a mild alcohol tinge at the end that left the flavor to linger for a nice long while.

    Mouthfeel was somewhere between medium and full in body and was rather dry in texture with a soft carbonation.

    Overall an extremely tasty brew with the alcohol flavor kept to a minimum, yet still allowing for a nice warming sensation after the swallow.

    It pours a light brown color, almost like the darkest iced tea you've ever had. The flavor is very complex with a ton of different malt flavors going on. There is roastedness, piney, hoppy, a little bit of not very sweet maple, even a hint of scotch. It's very bold and has a long bitter, but not acrid, finish.

    A great beer enjoyed in a sampler at Frank o'douds irish pub in Galena Ill. Not a beer I would order all night but still enjoyable.

    I'm partial to this as Founder's is where I learned to appreciate good beer. @pohlman4 is right about it being hoppier than most similarly styled beers but the balance is done very well.
