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”

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2008 Deep chestnut in color with minimal white head. Banana bread aroma gets solventy as it warms, and carries through into the flavor. Roasty and bitter with a burnt caramel edge. Biterness lingers after finish. $2.5/12oz

Bottle pours a dark garnet with a tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, smokey peat and a wiff of alcohol. Flavor long on that rich smokey note with a mix of caramel/toffee /brown sugar, earthy finish with a warming alcohol influence.

Very dark brown body with a very small head. Lots of chocolate malt and a bit of booze on the bouquet. Tons of chocolate flavor as well.

Thanks dra19! The color was a deep ruby. The head was thin, off-white, and creamy. The aroma was sweet malt, dark fruit, and alcohol. The flavor was alcohol, sweet malt, dark fruit, some hopps, and some spice. The palate was medium/thick bodied. The finish was warm and long-lasting

12oz bottle- pours a hazy reddish brown color with a creamy tan head. Lacing lingers on the glass. Some alcohol noted in the taste along with caramel and malts. Pretty easy to drink and could have another. My first Scotch ale and it will not be my last. Very well done Founders.

Tessic (1029) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
This scotch ale poured a deep red colour with a big smooth creamy light brown head. Scents include caramel, chocolate, ripe fruit and spice just name a few. First taste was creamy and sweet with flavours of burnt malts, strawberry jam, mineral water, ripe fruits...this could go on forever. The finish is slightly bitter with a grassy flavour and a almost oily mouthfeel. The palate is bitter with a flavour of Vermouth???

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy deep mahogany color with a small disappearing tan head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt goodness with a hint of earthy peat and a whiff of alcohol. The flavor is heavy on the sweet caramel malt, a touch of fruitiness, very light smoke, earthy peat, and a touch of alcohol. There is a bit of bitterness in the finish. Medium to full bodied. Smooth and easy to drink.

Bottle at Hop Leaf, Chicago
Dark chestnut color. Good aroma of caramel, malt, hop. Full bodied, with a sweet flavor, mix of malt, caramel, some toffee, very good hopping, but powerful and aromatic; in the end there is some roasted malt too. Excellent American Strong Ale.
