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 ďainít fer the wee ladsĒ

This is quite a heavy bodied deep reddish brown brew. On the sweet side in aroma and flavor with all of those malts. However, the alcohol is certainly held in check by the sweetness. I would have liked a bit more smoke on the back side. I wish I had some smoky cheese or oysters to go with this.

Onslow (1378) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2010
On tap at the University Roadhouse. Deep dark brew, sweet aroma with dark fruit and malty overtones. Taste is sweet, dominated iby malt, molassas and dark figgy fruit overtones, more than a little bitter and sour hoppiness in the finish, but the overall impression remains that of sweetness. An ethanol whooze in the after taste and ethanolic sweetness ala malt liquor permeate the flavor. Very satisfying palate and mouthfeel. very nice brew on the first cool day of late summer, would be great to warm up with after a long winterís day outdoors.

Bottle from VBS. Deep brown ruby color with a pale foamy white head. Aroma has some hints of scotch with a little chocolate and some hops. Some interesting funk mellows out into a sweet roastiness that lingers. A little rough on the palate. Iím a big fan of this beer. Everything I want out of a scotch ale.

50belair (3328) - Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2010
bottle. A classic scotch ale with sweet malt, carmel, and cola flavors. The nose is basically the same as the taste. Maybe my second favorite scotch ale.

Travlr (21167) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Toward the end of the night, after my tastebuds were in shock and very sleepy. I remember this one being on the sweet side, lots of malt, and a decent butterscotch tome.

stretchfest (79) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nice brownish ruby with average head. Weak aroma of roasted malts and piney hops. Tastes like peat with a boozy, bitter finish. Definitely not foundersí best, but still pretty nice.
