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”

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2010
Tap sample at New Beer Dist. Pours a dark ruby with moderate, off-white head. Nose of sweet malt, caramel, some heavy booze. Flavor is rich, plenty of sweetness, more caramel and some toffee, warm notes of scotch. Tail holds has some dark chocolate, coffee and some smoke. Sticky finish. Pretty nice.

Breadish aroma, like new baked bread and with a taste of strong alcohol and good hop, nice red colour but cloudy, I am going to drink this beer again.

italianjohn (2907) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2010
Dark ruby/brown pour with nice tan head light lacing ..... aroma of caramel and bready malts tastes just the same with some thickness, light smokiness and hop bitterness in the finish ..... smooth and mellow a tasty brew with a nice bitter bite at the end

12 ounce bottled sample. Founders could be my new favorite brewery. Liked the boldness of this beer. Nice combination of malt and hops.

djredpop (101) - Downriver, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2010
Burgundy / ruby, clear w/ off-white head. Subdued aroma. Very malty / sweet at first, finishes with quite a bit of hops bitterness. Medium-bodied w/ velvety mouthfeel. High alcohol content is masked well by generous malt and hops additions. Pretty good.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 2, 2010
Pint at Rattle n Hum. Directly after pints of Founders Porter & Double Trouble. I have to say, this doesn’t really compete with those hard hitters. Pour is a brown with a red/maroon hint... no head is retained. Lots of sweet malts, rich and supple. Body is medium and a bit slick. Does hide the alc well.

mrmekon (100) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2010
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 (3100) - 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.

Bottle. Poured a darker amber color with a light white head. Aroma was malts, caramel, and other fruits. I am not a huge fan of this style but this was was very good. Love this beer, and Founders.

mixmasterob (1054) - 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.
