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”

I typically like Scotch Ales so when I saw this in the local beer store I picked up a 6 to try. It has a bit of a smoke aroma, a nice dark brown color and a dry finish. Overall I think it was a good find that I’ll be sure to try again in the future.

12 oz bottle from Julios. Pours a deep caramel/brown with a small tan head. Aroma is very fruity, fresh berries, loads of caramel and some peat smoke. Taste is alot of caramel, touches of chocolate, a moderate amount of fruit-sweet cherries/apple with some hints of smoke. very nice.

12 oz bottle. Clear, dark burgundy brown with a foamy tan head. Lacy arcs. Cocoa, light vinous, cola and peat. Rich and chewy caramel and toffee. Dried figs and a burnt sugar bite end with light grassy drying. Another winner from Founders.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2007
bottle from billvane: pours a brown colour with a tan head that leaves a thin line with some small amounts of lacing. aroma of caramel malts, earthy hops and a small amount of dark fruit and roastedness. flavour is roated, chocolate, caramel malt to start with dried fruit and some chewy bread. a very little amount of hops in the finish. this is a very thick and creamy on the palate, but most enjoyable.

Poured a lightly hazy, reddish brown color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of peat smoke, caramel malts, light roast, earth, and a bit of alcohol as well. Taste of roast, chocolate, smoke, with some caramel, light dried fruits, with a dry, smoky, alcoholic finish.

bottle....apearance: dark-amber reddish brown which poured with a one inch off-white head....aroma: dark fruits, pretty malty albeit with some hope bitterness to it as well....taste: caramel malt sweetness, smokey with a bit of roasted bitterness that cuts through in the finish. a medium bodied beer that definitely is satisfying.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Deep brown beer with a light amber-red tint to it. Sweet toasty aroma, light berry fruitiness behind heavy brown sugar, light molasses and a sweet plumminess as well. Deep caramelized malt with a touch of burnt sugar character as well. Very rich tasting. Flavour shows a bit of peppery ethanol behind the sweet toffee and caramel. Slight salty with a hint of smoke on the back. Nice stuff.

Pours a nice brown color with a beige head. Hints of malt, alcohol, and hops in the aroma. Has a very earthy taste in which the hops nicley balance out the maltiness. Nice beer!

I had this yesterday for my first beer on tap for founders 10th anniversary. Pours out a little thicker and darker than i remember the bottle, but the same great taste is there.
