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

Bottle: Auburn pour with a smaller beige head. Nose is sweet and malty with oak, caramel, and fruity tones. Syrupy and thick feel. Malty and dry, there is a bit of oak present with a little citrus and hints of the alcohol content. Enjoyable. Thanks Eithcubes.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Received in a bottle from a friend! :) Iíve heard a lot about this local small brewery and finally get to sample one of their beer. Rich, strong aroma. Poured a deep red-brown. Creamy small tan head that remained a very thin cap to the end., Left nice lacing. Rich, robust, slightly smoky flavor with very malty, chocolate. roasted malt and earthy taste. Very full body, thick texture, very soft carbonation with a very nice flavorful finish. This beer is one of the best ones Iíve ever enjoyed. Founders has done a great job with Dirty Bastard. I tried this in a tulip. I will definitely add this to my normal rotation of favorite beer. If you like beer dark, rich, thick and full of great flavor this is the beer for you! To me it is excellent!!

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle purchased at Corral Liquors in Granite City, IL. Pours a clear burgundy/brown with a creamy tan head that diminishes to a thin cap and laces nicely. Sweet caramel malts are strong on the nose, backed by notes of raisin, plum and a light alcohol. Full-bodied, creamy and soft, it finishes with a lightly burnt/bitter end. The flavor is a sweet, creamy roasted malt front with smoked/burnt notes and a clean, dry finish. A bitter aftertaste lingers at the back of the tongue. Quite nice, I can see why itís referred to as "Founders flagship beer".

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours brown with a very minimal head. The aroma is heavy on the malt side, some roasted malts with molasses and coffee. The flavor is of roasted malts with molasses along with oak and also smoke. There is a alcohol burn. The body is medium to full with a oily texture and soft carbonation.

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 Iíll be sure to try again in the future.

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.

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.
