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”

Bottle. Sweet caramel aroma. Deep copper with a small off white head. Sweet caramel, hops, and a light roasted malt finish. I really like this one, it was very easy to drink.

rand (1470) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle 355 ml from www.erzbierschof.ch. Smell malted, smoked, undergrowth and a pinch of hops. The malt flavor is full, sustained a shade of hoppy bitterness. Earthy flavor, moshrooms, touch of wood and peaty, nuances of scotch, buttertoffee, toast. The texture is a little oily. Final drier, sappy, sweetened, smoked, heating.

Hangover (1104) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Brown-red pour with a thick and lasting tan head. Sweet malty aroma with some chocolate and caramel. Flavor hits you fast with a lot of malty sweetness. This one is clearly high gravity as it’s pretty hot on the palette. Chocolate, raisin, plum, molasses maybe even some oakey flavors. Lingering bitterness. Strong, sweet aftertaste, lingering booziness. As advertised, it’s really malty and the hops were not anywhere on stage other than to provide bittering and perhaps a slight bit of citrus in the aftertaste. Overall, a pretty good scotch ale and pretty true to the style.

Served at 45 degrees, poured into a pint glass.Deep copper in color with slight head after aggressive pour. Darker than I anticipated. Smells sweet and carmel like. Sweet taste moving to bitter on the tongue. Lingers on the bitter side. Rich and smooth mouthfeel. Overall, I really liked this beer.

Good Scotch Ale. Brings everything to the table that it should. I prefer backwoods bastard though for its added complexities.

jlruthven (600) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark mahogany with ruby tints when held up to the light. Small, light tan head, minimal lacing. Nose is nearly all malts, with smoke and peat hitting the sinuses. Taste is heavily smoked, with some burnt caramel and peat moss cutting through. Finish is lingering; dense, black wheat bread. Very subtle, very complex brew, and immensely drinkable for the ABV.

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark red amber with minimal head. Aroma is sweet, lots of malt, caramel. Tastes sweet, malty, some alcohol, caramel, toffee. The alcohol is apparent in the finish but not too much.
