Ölbeat 116: Founders Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale

Brewery: Founders Brewing Company
Country: United States
Style: Scotch Ale
Abv: 8,5 %
What about the beer?
Colour is dark nut brown with a nice medium-sized tan head. Aroma has syrupy, sweet malty and spicy scent with some caramel and raisins. Taste begins with smoothly bitter and sweet malty bite. Syrupy caramel malts with sweet bitterness and alcohol flavour take over, and the flavours grow enjoyably slowly. Some spicy and peppery flavours are in the background. Towards the end bitter caramel hops strike back. Aftertaste has sweet bitterness and alcoholic dryness.

Scotch Ale - or Wee Heavy as they also call it - beautiful style. Rich and tasty as hell. Caramel malts make the taste smooth and silky but bittersweet hops add some complexity and spice to the experience. Once again great work from the quality brewery.


The brew is clearly attached to "Ölmönger brand" (What the fuck is that?) by its name at least. Hence it's easy to find a matching song for this rich beer. And simultaneuosly I confess something that doesn't surprise anyone.

From the 1991 EP As Ugly as They Wanna Be and the 1992 album America's Least Wanted, the song was written by Whitfield Crane and Klaus Eichstadt.
