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”

Pours a dark red with almost no head. Aroma of caramel, raisin and a little fruity. Taste the same, but caramel prevail. Good stuff, but one glass is enough.

Alpha10 (402) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2015
2015/04/03 - Pours a dark mahogany colour with a foamy, cream colour head that quickly reduces. Aroma is bread, caramel, vanilla, wood, roast and smoke. Taste is bready, sweet malt caramel with a hint of vanilla, roast, oaky-vanilla tones, smoke and a hint of booze. Mouthfeel is medium with low carbonation and a mildly boozy, drying finish. I'm don't usually enjoy scotch ales, but this is delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

leghorn99 (72) - Livorno, ITALY - MAR 31, 2015
Un insolito colore torbido, che si pone tra il mogano e il tonaca di frate, qualche riflesso rossastro; ed una piccola "testa" di schiuma beige, cremosa ma poco persistente. L’aroma è di buona intensità e pulizia, con una marcata dolcezza fatta di uvetta, fichi e datteri, melassa, biscotto al burro. In bocca, offre note di biscotto e toffee, uvetta e prugna, ma anche una leggera ossidazione; l’alcool è ben nascosto, se non per un lieve warming etilico finale, e la chiusura è leggermente amara. La birra ha un corpo medio, con una carbonazione bassa e una consistenza oleosa.

Boozy aroma. Cherry color pour, small head. In the mouth I’m getting a caramelized malt bomb with an early sweetness, and late bitter. Genuine article here.
