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”

Tognetta (744) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JUL 28, 2016
Ambar avermelhado/marrom translúcido, espuma marrom claro de boa formação e persistência, linda. Caramelo e maltado intensos e nítidos, vanilla, leve amadeirado. No paladar aparece mais o amargor do lúpulo dividindo espaço com o dulçor caramelado. Corpo e carbonatação de média intensidade, bem dosados. Final tem um pouco de madeira, defumado residual, toffe queimado, licor de cacau. Álcool fica mais nítido com aumento da temperatura, mas bem inserido.

A very smoky, brisk taste with a small bite. Pine, caramel and the slightest taste of hops. A smooth beer, pleasant to drink!

12 oz. can at the house. What a wonderful beer. Smoky and caramel are the aromas of this dark deep rich beer. Thin beige head, this thicker beer is complex with malt, caramel and a sweetness to it. Over all just Outstanding! Makings of a great winter warmer.
