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”

Oscbert (1231) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Strong malty aroma, caramel, toffee, bread, raisin, smoke. Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown color with small off white head Smoke more prevelant in flavor, woody, char, raisin, toffee. A bit bitter. Medium full body with medium low co2, lingering woody bitterness in finish. Aroma smells great. The flavor is a bit bitter in my opinion. I like sweeter scotch ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty in a glass. Boozey caramel and peat, approaching a scotch flavor. One of my favorites, and the ABV packs a nice punch.
