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”

Brandman (2848) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2010
355 ml bottle. Brown tanned head, dark body. Very sweet caramel aroma, lots of dark fruits, plum and date. Some aroma goes towards belgian ale. Sweet and burned candy flavour with high bitterness. Although flavour is less overwhelming than aroma.

Tap. Pours brown with a tanish head. Smell of malt. No description of the type of beer this was on the list so I thought it was a weak brown. Pretty nice tame flavor in my opionion.

Pours a dark red almost brown color with a small bold white head.Nose is bready with a hint of toast.Taste is ALL MALT...maybe a little hops on the backend..The mouthfeel is smooth and luscious throughout.The alcohol is masked due to the heavy malts.Pretty good beer.Not my fave from Founders but a pretty good brew.I can see why many people would enjoy this beer.

Appearance is a dark reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma is somewhat sweet, with some licorice. Flavor is malty with that same bittersweet flavor noticeable in the aroma. Finish is smooth with a slight sweetness that sticks to the tongue. Quite pleasant, would definitely recommend.
