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”

Deeeeep reddish brown with a creamy off-white head. Nice malty nose. Deep mouthfeel with a nice creamy palate. Very complex on the tongue with a bit of sweet (honey?). So much malt but combined very well. I’ve had a lot of poorly done scotch ales and they turned me off of the style. I’m glad this one is around to help redeem scotch ales for me!

CanIHave4Beers (3621) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 26, 2009
Pours a deep reddish-brownish color with a small head. Whoa! this actually smells like scotch! Smoky and peaty with some mild honey notes, dammit this smells good Flavor has good notes of scotch whisky with some very good hoppiness, some apple, some cherry, and some pronounced but delicious alcohol notes.

Dark brown with hints of red in color, little head. Hints of malt in the aroma. Sweet, rich malt flavor, hints of caramel. Medium-heavy body, dry finish. I prefer this beer on tap.

skortila (4867) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2009
Bottled. Aroma has caramel, butterscotch, raisins. Hazy, brown coloured beer with a lasting, off-white head. The taste is sweet, caramel malty with butterscotch. Sweetness is not too overwhelming. Balance is okay. Just a little siruppy. Has some hoppiness. Enjoyable brew.

Reddish-brown in appearance. Sweet, but not syrupy. A little anise and caramel malts. Slight whiskey or scotch on the palate. Very nice!

Damico (2977) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2009
The aroma is strong, like a brown ale with boozy undertones. It is like a thick dark syrup in appearance with red hughes. Tastes delicious from a strong ale perspective in the tradition of a scotch ale. I know people who are scared to drink this style - ask Sean.
