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”

Scotch ales are tough to rate since they are so different from most styles. I have to be in a specific mood to enjoy one but when that happens I love the dirty bastard.

Weezel (248) - Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Stone fruit, cocoa and a hint of smoke on the nose. Pours a perfect translucent ruby brown color with minimal head retention. Smooth mouthfeel with deep cherry flavor up front followed by some toasty malt and then finishes with a little bit of a bitter alcohol bite. Well done.

MattH (679) - California, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle from Daney’s Liquor store in Monterery, CA. Darker pour. Flavor was malt forward, but not sweet. Pretty easy to drink considering the ABV.

Birra molto particolare, leggermente vinosa, al palato particolarmente maltata. Bassa carbonatazion, stile particolare. Personalmente buona ma non ne gradisco piu di un paio di sorsi. Per lo stile molto ben fatta.

Bottle bought at Malt Attacks. Strong caramel, light roast, grapes, dark fruit, light vanilla touch. Nice but not my favourite style.
