Founders flagship beer. Dirty Bastard is an absolute beautiful beer to behold. Dark ruby in color and brewed with ten varieties of imported malts this beer continuously lives up to its reputation as a bold and powerful ale. Dirty Bastard is complex in the finish with hints of smoke and peat paired with a malty richness, finalized with a good bit of hop attitude. This beer “ain’t fer the wee lads”

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2010 12oz bottled in Dec 2009. Pours brown/copper, with strong red highlights, nice fluffy tan head, sheets of lacing to start. Aroma is pretty quiet on this one, some caramel malts, which is then immediately contrasted with the huge flavor, immensly malty to start, lots of caramel, brown sugar, molasses, toffee with a nice grassy bitter hop finish. Overall very malty impression, but a noticeable hop presence, more than other Scotch Ales I’ve tried. Mouthfeel is quite rich and creamy, medium carbonation. My first night ever with Founders, Breakfast Stout equaled expectations, Dirty Bastard exceeded expectations.

Dfonorow (1749) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Dark brown with a good amount of sediment at the bottom of the glass and no head at all. The smell is quite nice and consists of caramel malts, molasses, hops, and a bready note that I can’t quite figure out. The taste is initial alcohol with a strong earthly and molasses finish. It tastes a little like scotch but not as strong as I would have thought, overall it is very good an interesting.

The aroma is an interesting one of a dark chocolate champagne formation. It doesnt exist for sure, but that is the sort of aroma I perceive. The bouquet is full of dark berry alcohol. The sugary alcohols add to the nice fragrances. The appearance is very dark ruby colorerd a bit hazy with almost no head whatsoever. The head is only a thin collar of white fluff. The taste is a moderate to heavy sweetness, but reserved not overly abundant as this style has a tendency towards. There are slight alcohol notes, but only sort of like a dark chocolate pinot noir (if there were such a thing) nothing overpowering. It’s most akin to The palate has underlying notes of bitterness that has light to moderate effervescence with an interesting dark chocolate feel on the center of the tongue. A sort of parallel of astringent sweetness.

Leafs93 (1945) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Very smooth for such a dark strong ale(8.3%). Have had on tap and from the bottle, both times I was very impressed with how easy it goes down. Pours a reddish brown with thick creamy head. Nice aroma and has a coffee like bitter aftertaste. All around a great beer.

Mora2000 (6101) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Pours dark reddish-brown with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is lots of caramel, dark fruit and some alcohol. Not much peet smoke in the aroma. The flavor is very fruity and sweet. Not too much smoke. You get a little roasted malt and the alcohol is present and warming. Medium mouthfeel and pretty drinkable for a beer of this strength.
