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 - 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.

Can smell the high alcohol - nice ruby read appearance. Very smooth tasting for an 8.3 beer, but a metallic finish. Very good, but not Founder’s best (Porter and Red Rye).

Rando7 (778) - Iowa, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Bottle pours dark brown color with brief tan head. Malty aroma with a little alcohol. Taste molasses, caramel, malts. Palate medium and smooth. Long mildly hoppy finish, A little too bitter to be pleasant. Not bad, was hoping for a little better from Founders.

A good beer, nothing outstandingly special about it, but it does the trick (at 8.3& alc. it should).

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 5, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Cloudy dark reddish-brown. Aroma was semi-sweet, caramel malts and fruit. Flavor is malty, sweet and smoky with a touch of hops tang for balance. Hides the alcohol very well. Full and round with a clean and smooth finish.

Sampled at American Craft Beer Fest 2010. Pours ruby brown with a tan head. Aroma mainly of malts, but some hints of hops and coffee as well. A nice coffee finish on this beer. Thick texture, very good. Definitely worth trying.

Sweet caramel and malt aroma, with a bit of pine and smoke. Pour is dark brown with a bit of red. Small tan head that didn’t stick around. Taste of sweet molasses with maybe a bit of vanilla and a bit of smoke. Earthy and grassy malts finish. Love the finish on this one. Love me some Scottish Ale, and this is a nice example.

Lovely, rich and smooth. Smells like a strong brown ale, with a flirty burnt malt addition. It goes smooth and clean with a harsh aftertaste that gives the dirty bastard its name.

Had this on draft at a local Uno’s. It was Founders night there so was able to have KBS as well as Centennial IPA and their Pale Ale. I liked this one the best although KBS and Centennial were both incredible as well and Pale Ale was a nice session beer.
