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”

lukin (525) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
bottle. Pours a beautiful ruby colour, small tan head. Sweet cotton candy, vanilla, smoke and earthiness. Very sweet on first sip, but there is a lingering earthy bitterness on the finish. I’m not a huge fan of scotch ales, but this is a good one.

visionthing (3662) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
35,5cl bottle from Drink Shop, Tallinn. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby to copper coloured with a fairly modest, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, malt and hints of wood. Sweet, very sweet, but still surprisingly drinkable and surprisingly tasty. Usually I wouldn’t be a big fan of beers like this, but somehow it works. It is somehow balanced and it’s surprisingly smooth and drinkable.

DeliriumT (391) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2015
Pours deep brown with decent head. The aroma is an array of caramels: toffee, burnt caramel, molasses. Flavour is deep and rich like a good scotch ale should be. Sweet, syrupy caramel. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Padron4KM (690) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 24, 2015
12 oz bottle. Clear dark reddish brown, with a thin tan head and little lace.
Aroma is malty, caramel, smoke, peat and a touch of yeast.
Flavor is sweet, caramel, smoke, with a touch of yeast and a light hop bitterness. The bottle was 10 months old, so it might be past it’s prime. Need a fresher example to re-rate.
