Dirty Bastard - Scotch Ale from Founder Brewing Comapny

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. 8.5% ABV and 50 IBUs.

Review from Beer Advocate(For more reviews of this beer:

Appearance:
A really rich looking dark brown/amber with some mild particulates and a pale, yellow head. The head falls flat with minimal lacing, but the beer is still well carbonated.

Smell:
Not overwhelming, in fact this may be one of the first founder's beers I've had that didn't have a pungent nose. However, there is still something mouthwatering about the beer. It's got some scotch, spice, and sweetness all well balanced.

Taste:
Whoa, banging flavors! Sweet sugar with some scotch and sightly bitter spice. This is a pretty damn tasty beer, it's right in line with the other Founder beers I've had thus far. As far as scotch ales go, this is definitely one of the best I've had. Not too boozy and not too watered down.

Mouthfeel:
Heavy malt with a slightly stinging alcohol after exhaling. The beer is medium bodied, but is generously carbonated.

Overall:
This was an unexpected addition from a trade gone awesome from tburk and I'm super thrilled to try it. There isn't much wrong with the beer, not that I'm an expert on scotch ales, but I'd definitely get this beer again.

History of Founders Brewing Company
Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers both had steady jobs when they decided to chase their dreams and open a brewery–which meant writing a business plan, quitting their jobs, and taking out giant loans. They figured if you’re going to live life, you ought to live it hard, without regrets.

After some initial challenges, due to making well balanced but unremarkable beers, we were on the verge of bankruptcy. It was at this point that the original Founders team decided to brew the kind of beer that got them excited about brewing in the first place: complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics, bigger body, and tons of flavor.

The Founders Family, a group of passionate beer enthusiasts, has grown around this simple philosophy: “We don’t brew beer for the masses. Instead, our beers are crafted for a chosen few, a small cadre of renegades and rebels who enjoy a beer that pushes the limits of what is commonly accepted as taste. In short, we make beer for people like us.”
 
We at Founders Brewing Company have been lucky to evolve into one of the highest recognized breweries in the United States. In 2011, Ratebeer.com ranked us as the 2nd best brewery in the world (up from 4th best in 2010), and we have several beers listed in the top one hundred beers of the world on Beeradvocate.com. We were the second fastest growing brewery in the U.S. in 2009, the winner of four medals at the 2010 World Beer Cup, and the winner of two medals at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival.

We are proud to be doing what we are doing, and we give great thanks to our many customers and credit to our staff for whom we continually work to reinvent and provide world-class beers.
