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”

A long time favorite of mine. A beautiful, foggy, reddish brown and a small light brown head. Lot’sa healthy fruit, some toffee for the candy lovers, and a nice abv. There’s a lot to like in this beer.

berkshirejohn (4805) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
12oz bottle from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. A rich reddish chestnut pour with a thin cream head; syrupy butterscotch aroma; smooth and oily in the mouth, packed with rich toffee malts, and a pleasant peaty bitterness; then a syrupy finish with well-hidden, but warming, alcohol.

eaglebones (52) - Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Dark auburn with short tan head. Complex aroma of cherries, dark fruits, and caramel. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet flavor nicely followed by a hoppy bite. High alcohol content gives it a boozy warmth. This is a really great beer of the style.

PhatB420 (688) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2015
12oz into a stemmed glass. Pours a super dark and rustic magenta/ruby/velvet. Head is mild and fades fast, lacing is creamy brown and hovers over everything. Aroma of sweet malts, barnyard organics, such as hay, dirt, grass, ... cherries, juicy dark fruits. Taste of sweet malts, tart cherry, velvet cake, with a bitter punch from the abv and the mascaraed of malts. Dark, poinioght, and enjoyable on a late January eve in BWAC waiting for the Pats to win the super bowl. Drinks like a syrup based amber with honey, yet still derives a bitter notch of surprise when paired with the abv. Coasting.

Moebbels (398) - FINLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Pours a clear very dark amber body with a nice, fluffy light brown head. Nose has buttery and malty notes. Taste is sweet and warming with a bitter finish. Carbonation is low and feels creamy, palate is quite rich. Very nice and well balanced beer for slow enjoyment.

guzzler67 (1536) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 18, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2015 Mahogany appearance with a small. beige head and nice lacing. Earthy, malty aroma dotted with toffee and ripe fruit. Moderately sweet flavor with notes of caramel and dark fruit and an evolving complexity. Alcohol adds warmth to the aftertaste as a modest amount of spicy, floral hops add balance. Full bodied, softly carbonated mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.

mikkos (250) - FINLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Dark ruby beer with a long lasting bubbly head. Aroma is sweet caramel, malts, raisins, ripe dark fruits, hint of alcohol. Taste is medium sweet, caramel malts, bready, fruity, a hint of alcohol. Medium plus mouthfeel, medium bitterness turn into warming alcohol. Really liked this one, just as expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
