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”

# 3513 ersma: welch einladender name für ein bier. ein schotch style ale, das kommt einem nicht so oft ins glas. gibts auch als variante mit bourbon-getränkten rosinen und vanille. dunkelbraun bis schwarz mit viel beige-farbigem schaum, der sich stabil gibt. der geruch ist süßlich bis süß, melassig. aromen von sirup und etwas röstmalz. der antrunk ist ebenfalls sehr süß. schoko, karamell und noch mehr schoko, dahinter pflaume und rosine. die mitte bringt zusätzlich etwas hopfen mit, betonung auf „etwas“. die karamell- und schokonoten bleiben bis zum abgang sehr intensiv. ebenso die süße, die schon nach dem ersten schluck klebrige lippen macht. auch pflaume und rosine finden sich im abgang wieder, ebenso röstmalz. die flasche ist ok. fazit: die süße und klebrigkeit sind anstrengend. aromatisch ok, aber jetzt auch nicht der überflieger, als der es von vielen hingestellt wird. gut trinkbar, mehr nicht. 13,9,9,8,9,9 - 9,25

bierkitty (158) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Beautiful pour from a bottle. Lasting cream colored head over dark clear ruby amber. Just a little caramel on the nose. Flavor is light caramel with some dark fruit and malt. Tiniest bit of smoke. Surprisingly dry with a pleasant spicy bitter finish. Really smooth and yummy.

HuskerTan (482) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle. A- Caramel, burnt sugar, sweet, dark fruits, dough. A- Very dark mahogany color, clear dark liquid, off white head. T- Caramel malts, brown sugar, slightly sweet, dried dark fruits, P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, strong finish. O- A very good beer. More of a Barleywine than any scotch ale I have had. Full of complexity and lots of flavor. The malts make for a sweet caramely dark fruity goodness. Much good to be said about this beer.
