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”

12oz bottle, courtesy of someone from a while back. Pours a murky brown color; minimal head formation with a thin perimeter of small bubbles. Dense, caramel and dried fruits in the aroma. Medium, chewy mouthfeel: caramel and bubble gum upfront (slightly fruity, a bit syrupy), with some smoke and roasted malts; hides its alcohol reasonably well. Decent scotch ale. Lengthy, sugary and roasted malt finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear red body with nice head. Aroma is smokey malt, bubblegum, caramel. Flavor is a dry sweet malt, caramel, light bubblegum and a lot of smokiness. Nice full bodied brew. Very enjoyable.

This is a great beer. Pours a toffee-brown color with a small white head. Has a nice malty, caramel aroma and the mouth feel on this is great; smooth, fairly thick and just overall wonderful. Starts out fairly tame with some roasted malt, caramel, and toffee notes and finishes with a decent smoky bite. Will definitely seek out again.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Pours a deep, dark reddish brown color with a fat tan head. The smell is of rasisins, malt and some spices. Great refreshing taste with a little alcohol kick to it. The finish in smooth with some carmel and malt doing the job in the end.

12 oz bottle. great malt smell. Beautiful deep red-brown color. Strong,sweet malt flavor puctuated by caramel flavor that this style is famous for. Subdues alcohol bite. Just enough hops to balnce the alcohol and malt flavors. I will be drinking more of this

Draft - Dark copper color with average head and nice lacing. You can really taste the carmel and peat in this one. Nice after taste that sticks with you for a while. Will drink this one again. My wife didn’t appreciate, but she only likes the fruity beers. On tap at Cascarelli’s in Homer, MI.
