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”

Beautiful deep ruby color with little to no head; aroma is very light...some caramel maybe? Taste is robust! Huge floral and fruit (figs, raisins) notes developing to a roasted caramel and some hop resin to finish; mouthfeel is just right...not too thick or thin and just a touch of carbonation. Really just missed on the aroma. Everything else is great!

Bottle, The Hop Beer Shop, Chelmsford, 12th June 2015 . Loads of raisins, wood and oak barrels on aroma Some gorgeous textures. Some vanilla and leather. Really nice balance. Drinks really well. Just a lot of raisins on the flavour. More Rochefort than Scottish ale.

Dirty bastard is a great beer with good color and taste. When I first tasted this beer I got a great taste you know it is a stronger beer immediately and that helps in the enjoyment of it. If I had anything bad to say about it is that it lacks any sign of aroma probably because of such I high amount of malts to hops. I would recommend this beer but only two or three a night.

Bottle thanks to Klimaet. Pours a dark ruby with a small, off white head. Aroma has lots of caramel, raisins, figs, malts, slight alcohol, pretty sweet. Taste is sweet and caramel malty with a slightly toasted bitterness. Again some raisin-like fruityness. Average carbonation and slightly oily body.

Bottle. Dark brown with a small head. Powerful sweet flavour with lots of body.Lacks complexity but a straightforward strong ale that doesn’t mess around. Not a nice name though.

Red ruby appearance with medium head. Intensive sweet and fruity aroma, caramel sweet taste, some sourness. Slightly high sweetness to reach perfect balance.
