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. Pours a murky brown color with a tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is caramel, sweet, and a little bit of a roasty character. Taste follows the aroma with a little bit of a bready aspect that doesn’t come through on the nose.

Brown pour, thin white head. Remarkable aroma of scotch which is also mildly present in the flavor. Also present was a combo of hops, spices, and caramel. Mild carbonation, medium body.

Poured into a snifter from a bottle. Aroma is malty with some dark fruits. Taste is fairly bready with some nice fruits and sweetness. Full-bodies, goes down really smooth. A very good brew!

Mmmm. Pours red with a tan head, aroma of cookie dough,, vanilla, distant scotch or bourbon, and a twinge of alcohol. Flavor is inially very warm, toast, molasses, wood esters, black pepper, and tobacco, followed by a bit of earthiness. Very good.

Had tried all Lunar beers on tap at Lunar Brewing Company that day so on to the guest taps. Strong, rich, bold. Smoky, peaty, and malty. Tasty. Serving: Tap

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 (1406) - 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 winter’s day outdoors.
