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 ďainít fer the wee ladsĒ

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2012 Draft at Jerryís. Clear dark mahogany with good, creamy, tan head / Sweet, rich nose of toffee, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit / Medium to full body, chewy, sweet & syrupy but with excellent hopping, and good bitterness, and some heat, on the long finish / Rich, complex flavors of coffee, chocolate, caramel, nut, and peet / One of the greats.

Bottle. Reddish brown with a moderate tan head that fades rapidly. Sweet malt and caramel aroma. Big roasted malt flavor, with some peaty smoky flavor. Some hops become evident at the end. Fairly full bodied. Very nice.

Extremely dark ruby color. Fairly nice malt nose. Really complex hints of peat and smoke on the palate, with additional notes of caramel, toffee and fruit as well. Very nice body. Nice flavor. A very nice beer. I would love to buy this beer in a 6íer.

Very Dark red almost black pour with a small tan head. Aroma is malts, caramel, and a grain aspect to it. Almost candy like in the aroma. Very smooth caramel malt taste, but the graininess is subdued in the taste but brings something subtle nuances into the mix. Palate is short, somewhat lively and carbonated, and light. Overall, Very nice Scotch ale better than most of the Wee Heavies. Cheers!

Founders has been a mixed bag with me. I have had some good beers from them, and some pretty awful ones as well. This one is a winner. It pours a lovely dark brown color and smells like a delicious malty beverage. Palate is nice and full, and the flavor is awesome: Lots of smoke and roasted malts. The smoke is definitely there, but itís far from over powering. I detect some brown sugar and fruits too -- maybe some raisin -- hard to tell. Excellent beer.
