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 brown with a tan head. Lots of caremel malt in the aroma and taste. The hops show up right off the bat with some flowery bitterness, but fade and the sweetness comes through in the end. Good stuff.

On tap at the Fed. in Durham, NC. Dark red color with a finger’s worth of tan head. Very malty in the aroma department with a bit of peatiness and brown sugar. Tons of caramel flavor and brown sugar. Light smoke in the finish. Very very very sweet. Thick mouthfeel. Good beer.

very dark amber pour with a smooth head. Aroma was nice.. first taste was not what I expected. Very nice - I have had some Scottish Ales and didn’t expect much here. Very complex taste with new flavors in every sip. Aftertaste is good as well.. nice carbonation gives it a full feel in the mouth

20080830 12oz bottle RB Spirits. Cola brown with lasting tan head. Aroma is earthy, dirty, mulch...okay peat. It’s a bit of a turnoff but it’s rated highly enough I fiugured I should give it a shot. Sweet with sticky malts, chocolate notes, more detritus. Pretty hot. Meh...I could do without scotch ales.

A great scotch ale and pours with little head. Bitterness in the aftertaste with little hint of the alcohol content. Great with food or as an evening treat.

When you talk about hop bombs this isn’t it. but if you want to talk about a malt bomb you came to the right place. pours ruby brown with barely any head to speak of. Aromas of roasted malts lots of different malts 10 in fact,also aromas of alcohol and smoke, taste is of alcohol, malts, toffee, and peat. the harsness of the alcohol tames as beer warms and relaxes to a warm caramel sweetness but laddie be careful cause this brew has a kick with 8.3 ABV content
