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”

Bursting with malty flavor. Nice dark body with reddish hue. Smooth, malty flavor with a nice kick from the hops. I’m still trying to pick out all of the flavors. Great beer.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Orange/amber color with tan head. Scent of raisin, honey, nuts. Rich, full beginning with smoky raisin, caramel, alcohol taste and a hint of cinnamon. The sweetness keeps it smooth through the finish with a little more alcohol lingering. More rainsiny-Scoth taste than a beer taste.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Poured a lovely shade of garnet with a longer-lasting creamy tan head... but there was significant unattractive chunkage resting at the bottom. Nose was of smoked up darker fruit, caramel, alcohol, and some dried herbal hops. Flavor was definitely complex from a malt perspective... overriding aire of smoked peat with pulled caramel, toffee, darker fruits, and herbal notes well-blended in there. Smooth, creamy middle that had a bit of alcohol slide off toward the edges. Warm smoked peat, dried plums, and herbal hops leave a lasting impression. Another solid brew from these guys!

Englander1986 (51) - Middlesbrough, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2006
A light, orange colour with a scent of dried fruits and a smokey aftertaste, generally a nice beer and if available around my parts, a deffinate buy.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Poured dark with little head that ran away quickly, dark ale resembles a stout but has red, good lacing on the glass, smelled malty sweet, hints of coffee, some carmel, remnants of stout, taste of coffee, toffee, hint of licorice, dark malts, stout, a thick, full mouth feel, heavy on the palate Old Rating 8-5-7-5-16 - 4.1- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - -- - - -- - - New Rating 10-17-07 - pours a dark ruby with brown, looks brown black in the glass but is a dark ruby, with a layer of tan bubbles that disappeared to a ring, aroma of earth, chewy dark or cooked caramel, molasses, delicious malt sweetness in the nostrils, lots of malt fragrances, vanilla and choclate cake mix, I notice a faint smoke aroma here and there after the ale warmed up a bit, a sip presents flavors of brown sugar, chocolate, toffee and little bits of coffee, a mix of dark malt flavors, roasted malt, thick mouth feel, coats the tongue, has a faint stickiness on the palate, little bitterness but the sweet flavor rides on top to subside at the finish and has a small bite from the alcohol to wash away the malt sweetness, there is faint alcohol warming in the background, this could be served as a wonderful Winter Warmer, I still love this brew! Cheers to Founders for making my tastebuds so happy!
