Founders Brewing Co. Dirty Bastard (8.3%)

Dirty BastardHell’s teeth, this is good.
I’m not sure I approve of the name though.
I just don’t see the need.
Especially with a beer that tastes this good – you don’t need to shock with your sales pitch.
Dirty Bastard is a “Scotch Style Ale” that reeks of varnished oak and pine furniture stuffed with treacle toffee.
The malting is huge with Daim bar peanut toffee brittle, and chocolate and chestnut praline.
There’s such a lovely chewy body that you find yourself sucking your tongue clean, getting every last bit of goodness before your next swig.
Then there’s a good pepper dry leaf crunch to the hopping that adds a very nice and much needed sharp fresh edge.
But this beer is all about its dense and gloopy burned toffee hazelnut woodiness.
A very good beer with a very bad name.

    One of the best beers I’ve had in the last few years. Founders have pretty good distribution in the UK but I wonder if the name might put a few stockists off.
