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”

Draught @ Churchkey - Pours dark, dark, dark, with a thick and creamy head that persists and laces the glass. Fantastic aroma of breadk, chocollate, coffee.Sweet and malty with a hint of bitterness. classic Scotch Ale. Founders is fantastic.

nwiseman (202) - Norwich, Connecticut, USA - AUG 19, 2010
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. I’m a big fan of this beer. Everything I want out of a scotch ale.

50belair (3425) - 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 (21653) - Charlotte, North Carolina, 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 founders’ best, but still pretty nice.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 12, 2010
from Erzbierschof - cloudy ruby-brown colour with no head left; solid aroma of prune and caramel, a fair piney hop presence; full-bodied and gently sticky, a sweet and solid malt backbone, a respectable bitterness before a long aftertaste of dark fruits, piney hops and licorice

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Poured from bottle, pours very dark ruby/red color, has aroma of malt and booze to it, a little alcohol to the finish of it but this is one fine brew from Founders.

MattShizzle (600) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle - from sampler pack. Dark copper color - barely translucent. Very little aroma. Taste is really good - very malty with some roastiness and a bit of peat smoke.
