COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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”

Delicious. One of the tastiest and sweetest scotch ales ive ever tasted. Dark and rich. Smells like sweet coffee and a fruity hint. Not very heavy. Alcohol is not prevelent in the taste.

toddkrem (92) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Tastes like a waterdown black coffee. Good beer if planning on drinking a whole six pack. Not flavorful enough for me. No aftertaste. Texture was watery.

jezmez68 (395) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Shared a bottle with 3 others. Nice reddish brown color. Tastes a bit like a Heath bar, only not as sweet or chocolatey.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Ruby red color with a cream colored head leaving spotty lacing around the glass. Toffee, brown sugar, malted milk balls in the nose. Malted milk balls up front followed by toffee in the finish, only a bit of hop presence. Average carbonation and medium bodied. Wasn’t very drinkable, split the bottle. Perhaps I will try it again to see if I got a bad bottle or if I will like it better.

Liquid GHB, clear your schedule if you plan to drink more than one or two. Im not a lightweight just something about this beer knocks you out.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Really beautiful pour- brown with amber highlights and two fingers of tan head. Strong grainy aroma with notes of smoke, peat, caramel, and molasses. Flavor is also grain and peat, with hints of sweet caramel, floral hops, strawberry, and some nice nuttiness and smoke in the finish. Thick sticky palate.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2008 Deep chestnut in color with minimal white head. Banana bread aroma gets solventy as it warms, and carries through into the flavor. Roasty and bitter with a burnt caramel edge. Biterness lingers after finish. $2.5/12oz
