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”

TheKegergator (241) - California, USA - APR 19, 2007
Pours pretty cloudy and settles out into a medium tan head that faded pretty quick. Smell is pretty goo, a little light, but the fruits and sweetness are there again. Taste is damn good. I guess I love me some scotch ales.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2007
On draft at Capone’s for the Pliny tasting. Pours deerp bronze with red hues, and a decent size off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, spices, toffee, and fruit. The flavor is sweet, fruit, very smooth, caramel, spices. Very Nice.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2007
Bottle. clear ruby/copper color with a small head. Aroma of toffee and brown sugar. Taste is ’teeth hurting ’ sweet; toffee, caramel, nutty with some spicy hops. Medium to heavy body. Sticky with alcohol texture. Long, sweet finish.

lukin013 (215) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2007
Cloudy reddish brown color with decent off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma of molasses, toffee and dark fruits. Flavor similar to aroma with some added dry nuttiness. Alcohol is slightly more apparent than I would expect.

gunsho (134) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 10, 2007

lumberjack (178) - Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2007
Unfiltered, dark brown with big fluffy head. Aroma is malt and alcohol. Taste is caramel, toffee, alcohol, and mainly sweet maltiness. Good carbonation, with a somewhat dry aftertaste. Pretty good altogether.

f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2007
Pours a nice red color with a minimal head. Sweet nose, nothing largely noticable. Highly malted and smooth, sweet, hoppy finish. Small amount of roasted malts detectable. A nice brew.

Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle, poured a dark brown with a thin off white head. I honestly think that Scotch ales just aren’t my thing. They seem so bland and boring. No aroma, simple malty taste, medium mouthfeel and a sweet finish. I just don’t get this style...

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Bottle. Reddish brown pour. No head. Icy, carbonated froth on top. Looks a lot like a Birch beer. Chocolate, malty, nutty aroma. Overwhelming flavor to tongue and roof of mouth. Malty, wooden taste. More like a brown ale than a scottish ale

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2007
On tap. Very dark brown chestnut color with a thin loose white head. Aroma is malt-dominated with a general maple/brown sugar sweetness. Some milder oak and plum-like aromas present. Medium to thick palate, well-carbonated. Sweet, dark, candied fruit taste with some alcohol discernible, but not obtrustive. Dry finish. A very good Scotch, but overall it lacked some characteristics I prefer in Scotch Ales (peat, a little smoke).
