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”

Sdaniel90 (333) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. Pours a deep, dark ruby colour, not exactly cloudy, but pretty opaque, with a creamy tan head. Intense, rich aroma of dry fruits, caramel and alcohol. Medium to robust bodied, smooth, with low cabronation and astringency. Heavy roasted character with hints of nut and spices, Well balanced with a strong bitter and alcohol finish. A class ale.

Pours deep mahogany red with a large tan head. Smells strongly of caramel and hints of roast. Taste is caramel sweetness and hints of resinous hops. Full-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Founders Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale finishes with a slightly cloying sweetness.

Lele (90) - ITALY - JUN 21, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 L’aroma è sicuramente il suo punto forte: deciso, complesso e avvolgeste! I suoi 50 IBU non si sentono, coperti da un corpo strutturato e ricco di sapori, dove emergono il maltato, il caramello, il biscottato e il tostato. Un eccellente esempio di Scotch Ale.

This is my go to beer right now. It has a nice bold flavor and tastes best between fridge and room temperature.

Bottle. Dark chestnut brown with a medium sized beige head. Caramel, molasses, chocolate, rum, spices, warming alcohol, toasted malt. Medium/full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Pretty soft and pleasant. Scotch ale or barley wine?

gripweed57 (613) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours a deep copper red color with a thick rocky beige head. Subtle caramel malt nose with hints of smoke and milk chocolate. Sweet toasted malt flavor has notes of caramel, sweet coffee, raisins and smoky peat. Very smooth, yet complex. Finish is chewy with a sticky, spicy hop finish. This is a nice Scotch style ale worth seeking out.

wvhoran (93) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle. The Dirty Bastard presents himself as a lovely deep red beer with just a small off-white head. The aroma is a barrage of deep caramel malt, raisins, brown sugar, a nutty quality. Sweet, dark ripe fruits. Bold and rich: pleasant.
