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”

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.

Bottle: A dark reddish brown beer with a fairly large dense tan head with lacing. Rich aroma of toffee, dark ripe fruits, brown sugar, and caramel. Flavor is of dark fruits and toffee with a moderately bitter finish. Very well done.

12oz - Chocolate nose, bitter finish, some malt without being sweet. Hides the 8.3% well. Nice Scotch, not great.

This Dirty Bastard is in my opinion more similar to a Stout than Scotch Ales that I’m used to. It lends a caramel and toffee like taste along with a lingering mouthfeel. Very drinkable and a personal favorite both by name and taste.
