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”

"Poured a brown/red color okay head weak lacing. Aroma was like sweet candy like ealge said. Flavor was a little to sweet for my liking but of caramel. I didn’t pick up enough smoke and peat. Okay beer could have been better. "

Burgandy pour with fading head. Nose featured rummy fruits, mainly figs. Flavour shares the deepness of the fruits, with peaty smoke, and a medicinal undertone.

This one poured a reddish brown color with a nice initial head. Lacing was weak. Aroma was sweet candy (cinnamin also?), some smoke, some caramel. The flavor was a bit too sweet, caramel and some sort of a candy I couldn’t place. Hop presence was detectable and the peat smoke flavors light for the style. But, this was still pretty enjoyable.

Strong roasted qualities, intense caramel, tootsie roll. Sour grapes in the flavor, with alcohol. Thick body and richness.

Dark mahogany in color with a small tan head. Nice bold sweet malt flavor, a little syrupy. A touch of smoke and dark fruit. The hops are more abundant than expected, a nice surprise, I like the hop bitterness. This is a very good bold beer.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Pours nice garnet brown with almost zero head. Aroma is richly caramel and toffee, chewy chocolate with a touch of light hops. The flavor has a nice bitterness to cover the mentioned flavors, and is thick and syrupy in the mouth. Perhaps a little overcarbonated. It still rolls down the throat nice and smooth.

bottle - Warm light mahogany color with light creamy tan head. Nutty aroma. Taste is a sweet lightly charred maltiness with dried fruit notes and just enough hop to break the sweetness.

Pours a very dark amber color with a thin tan head. Aroma is of dark fruits, spices, and a slight hint of alcohol. Flavor is the same, starts off with the dark fruits then gives way to the spices and then finishes with some smokiness, sweet malts, and a hint of hops. Decent bitter finish. Another good brew from Founders.
