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”

355ml bottle at the Tipping Point Brewing Co on Wyndham Street in Hong Kong. Poured into a tulip glass. Dark red/brown in colour with a very small tan coloured head which quickly disappears. Medium carbonation. Sweet aroma, caramel malt and plum. Heavy body, taste of caramel, fruits, chocolate and a little coffee. A chewy mouthfeel. A beer with a lot going on, and a lot going for it.

355 ml bottle
Ruby red to mahogany brown colored lear beer with beige head. Aroma has bready malts, slight peat, earthiness, herbs, vanilla and chocolate. Flavor has malts, herbs, dark fruits, raisin, toffee and coffee. Palate is full with heavy carbonation, slightly foamy. Finish has heavy bitterness. Aftertaste has alcohol, herbs, coffee acidicy and toffee sweetness. Decent for slow sipping, but I don’t find it that enjoyable. Reminds me of a doppelbock.

Beachmaster (164) - Oklahoma, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle into a pint glass. pours a deep ruby, with a small tan head which quickly fades. Good lacing. Nose is malt and peat smoke. Taste is wonderfully complex, with a slightly sweet, smoky, malty flavor which deepens as it warms. The reference standard for Scotch ales. Outstanding.

Fredd_an (39) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2014
Fantastisk sötmaltig med all tänkbar mörk choklad, fudge & grejer som en Ben & jerrys glass. Man känner väl av alkoholens sötma. Men alkoholen blir inte stickig utan balanserad jämt ut. Tyvärr är min sorry bastard lagrad så de 50 IBU's har nog gjort sitt. Man märker att det är en Scotch Ale, en riktigt bra sådan! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
