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”

12 oz. bottle. Frothy tan head showing some good lace and durabulity bursts forth from a deep reddish amber pour. Malt sominated aroma with some bourbon , roasted nuts, and sweet dried fuit. Medium body with a rich mouthfeel. Sweet burnt caramel, molasses, and peppery spice are all part of a complex flavor. In spite of all the malt character, the finish is not overly sweet, and has even a bit of a bitter chewy tang.

Bottle. Poured a dark reddish brown with a moderately sized creamy light tan head that would lace considerably. A very malty aroma with a touch of rich dark chocolate. A robust flavor that fills the mouth. Very malty with a smokey roast finish. Nice.

TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Thanks to hopdog for the trade. Pours a hazy deep reddish brown, with more red coming through when held to the light. Large frothy light tan head that sustained and left lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, vanilla, oak, caramel, brown sugar, green hops and some berries. Flavor was a little more earthy, light smoke, hints of vanilla and oak, some dark fruits also in there with a sweet toasty maltiness and a great hop spiciness. Great use of hops in this Scotch Ale. Another winner for Founders!
