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”

Draft. Clear, dark amber, small off-white head, minimal lacing. Almost no aroma. Sweet and malty up front, earthy hops on finish. Well balanced.

tgncc (3090) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2010
UPDATED: APR 21, 2010 Aroma is caramel, earthy, light smoke. The appearance is an amber color, white head. The flavor is malt forward, caramel, expected for the style and notes of earth, smoke. The finish is piney hops. Medium body. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a good representation of the style.

mixmasterob (1050) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Pours a ruby red color with tiny head. Aroma is of crystal malts which impart some sweetness. Taste is somewhat of a malty sweetness with little to no hop bitterness. Alcohol is hidden well making it very drinkable. Not too shabby.
