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”

j12601 (8050) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a thin beige head. Malty with some toast and caramel notes, and just barely a feint hint of alcohol. Smooth, medium bodied, lots of malty caramel flavors. Light warming alcohol with some toast and hop bitterness.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Clear amber mahogony ruby pour with tan beige frothy head. Smells of malt, caramel, smoke, bourbon, vanilla. Tastes of rich roast malt. One of my favorite beer styles, and a good take on it. Excellent.

ljay6880 (475) - , Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2009
12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour was deep ruby with a half inch of tan colored foam on top. Nose is peat, caramel, malt, earth, molasses, and a hint of hops. Taste was molasses at first, followed by the characteristic scotch ale blast and a light hop bouquet. Wow!! For me, it doesn’t get much better than this brew. Every phase, even through the finish, is simply delicious.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2009
This is a great looking beer. Copper pour, light haze, thick flourish of tan head, generous lacing. Generic malty aroma. Rich malt ball of flavor, cracker, bread, toffee, fig, offset by generous bittering hops. Medium to full body, zesty palate, some alcohol warmth.

slayer02348 (103) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Pours dark brown with a reddish tint. Aroma is similar to what you’d expect from a porter, instead of a scotch ale. Smallish tan head. Taste is great. Chocolate was most noticeable for me, with a slightly fruity aftertaste. Delicious.

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. The color is a dark maroon with some slight brownish head. No lacing. The smell is malty with some nice dark bread flavor, some great butterscotch flavor as well. The taste is caramel and toffee. Some dry dark fruit mixed with some hop bitterness with a nice warm alcohol flavor. The feel of this beer is medium bodied and is easy going down. It is high an ABV but still pleasant and not overpowering.

TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2009
Bottled 355ml@MC
Deep ruby color, small steady beige head. Nutty and bready aroma. Toffeish, rye-bready, some chocolate. Aftertaste is strongly hopped and spicey (chili). Interesting spicey-toffeish Scotch ale.

Excellent U S Scotch Ale... Nice follow up to last weeks Double Bock. Not for the timid.
