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”

Now that I think about it, this was probably the first craft beer I ever had. I remember one of my bandmembers brought this stuff home, just based on it’s name, and we all hated it. Now after a year of trying new beers, and being turned on to craft brews, I decided to buy another six pack. Well it’s amazing how much change can happen to your palate in a year. This stuff is epic. It pours a very dark reddish brown, and has a small beige head. It’s aroma is strong, with hints of caramel, and apricot. The flavor is deep as well with hints of raisin and licorice. Very good brew from a very good brewer. Cheers!

mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Pours a dark ruby color with a nice tan head. Thick malty and slightly smoky aroma. It is a nice and creamy beer with coffee at the finish and loads of roasted malts in between. It has a sort of burnt flavor to it, but not in excess. Alcohol content is covered up really well. Really good.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2008 12 oz. Clear, dark brown with a thin head that tries to last and leaves some spotty lace. Aroma of earthy caramel and light smoke. Flavors of toffee, metallic brown sugar, toast, nuts, light candied apple and earthy smoke. Near-medium body is mostly smooth, a little to the dry side, and lightly warming on the finish.

Cloudy reddish amber with little to no head. The nose is all malty, smoky and sweet with just a hint of hops. A lot of flavor going on. Sweet toffee, smoke, nuts, bitter chocolate and caramel. Nice hop bitterness on the finish. Covers the entire mouth and the finish stays with you. Nice beer.

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2008
(Bottle, thanks to hopscotch) Pours cloudy, deep reddish brown with nougat colored head. The aroma is rather fruity, hoppy and berry-like with notes of resin, soap, strawberries, oranges, apricots and pineapples alongside malty tones of caramel, toffee, nuts as well as light hints of cookies and milk chocolate. Light smoky and earthy. Bit brown sugary. Some alcohol. The flavour is robust malty with notes of caramel and cookie alongside well balanced tones of fruits and hops. Light smoky, resiny, citric, soapy and earthy. The mouthfeel is soft, almost velvety with a light sticky touch. The finish is peppery and a bit numbing. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium bodied. Nice.

Bottle poured into glass; Pours out dark, thick, with very minimal head that lasts throughout the beers entirety. I get a strong sense of caramel malt from the beers aroma. Flavor of malted caramel with a little toffee. Finishes bitter with a very nice hint of scotch. Good beer.
