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”

Cloudy brown with a thin tan head, brown sugar with a tinge of smoke in the aroma, full bodied with lively carbonation, starts and ends sweet.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2004
Dark brown with a medium, light-tan head. Aroma very malty, a touch of caramel, dark fruits. Flavor also very malty; brown sugar, fruits, and lightly sour; the alcohol adds a very nice touch to this beer. Thick enough but, as is common, oto syrupy/sticky. I like this a lot, but it could really stand out a little bit more than it does.

badnewsbeers (2313) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2004
tawny brown color with creamy head...a very impressionable taste (with fruits, caramels, and SPICES)....it has a flowerlike aftertaste with a touch of smokiness....overall a pleasurable scotch ale

burcusabrews (106) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Color of light roasted coffee with thin trace of a creamy head. Aroma of sour cherries and very muted barnyard scents. Flavor of sweet fig with fruity aftertaste. Very prominent malt with little to no hop flavor/aroma, but some bitterness. Very nice Scottish Ale, but mild flavor for the style

Frank (2827) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Not so great. A bit too far on the sweet side with some odd diacetyl notes. A bit syrupy and low on carbonation. But then I’m not a fan of Scotch ales so who knows? You might liike it.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Beautiful tawny brown color, nice, thick, lasting tan head lies on top. Malt dominates the nose, in abundance, thick, rich, with dark fruits, and spices holding sway...quite, quite nice. Very plush on the mouthfeel as well, wonderful texture, full and devilish, flowing with uncommon delights, soft, yet sensuous, and very flavorful. Full bodied, long, fruity finish. Huge malt, little hop, but unrelenting in the way of flavor. Gets a bit chocolatey in the middle...the wonders yet unfold...they did themselves proud with this one! Wow...a top-notch Scotch!

Tap. A red brown color. Head is tannish and long lasting. Aroma is almost floral, sweet with malt and hops. Taste is rich. Very malty, nice hop additions balance things out. Very good beer.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 31, 2004
Brilliant reddish brown with thick off-white head. Carmel, roasted notes and hops on the nose to start. Creamy mouthfeel, with a green hop finish. Carmel, Toffee, pIne, and light roasted flaovors dominate. Well balanced brew!

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Caramel all over it- color, flavor, and nose. Gets a little sweet and roasty towards the finish
