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”

Kind of middle of the road for me not to sure how to rate this style. Has a sweet malt taste almost cloying matched with glittering hops. To me it’s just okay not something I would drink on a regular basis but is drinkable.

Dark amber pour with a head that dissipates quickly. Sweet aroma - scotch malts and light caramel. Medium carbonation...flavours of sweet malt, caramel with a touch of smoke. I really like this scotch ale.
