For whatever reason, the name of this one, Dirty Bastard, just makes me giggle. There’s inevitably a joke whenever someone orders it.
DB falls into the scotch ale category. We’ve never had one before so we were virgins on this one. 🙂
It poured into the glasses a beautiful rich brown, dark but translucent unlike stouts.
I could smell the roasted malt but not even a hint of burned chart or chocolate. It’s definitely a strong flavor, somewhat earthy with a bit of smoke. Founder’s website shows the IBU’s as 50, but I didn’t think it was that bitter. Usually a 50 has me tapping out.
It was strong but surprisingly not as heavy as what I’d expected. I could see this being a good campfire or poker night beer, though I think after the 3rd or 4th, it might get a wee bit heavy in the tummy.
