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”

UPDATED: APR 14, 2016 From 19 Mar 2016 -- just awesome malty goodness. The kind of beer you can sit down, relax, sip, and unwind to.

Look: dark red, clear, with stable beige head. Aroma: malt, toffee, caramel, light smoky and turf notes. Taste: moderate sweetness balanced with spicy bitterness. Flavour: rum, caramel, baked pumpkin with caramel and warming spices. Finish is less sweet and more bitter and spicy. Very good.

phfyysik (598) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
Pours dark brown with light brown head. Aroma is light metallic, caramel, some candies, light grass. Taste is caramel, sourish, strong metal, copper, heavy grass, some ether. Quite nice refreshment, but some grass or medicine taste will leave you in the end. Otherwise, nice beer!

Poured from a bottle. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a thin off white ring. Aroma of toffee and light malts. Flavor is very Blah. Some woody, earthy notes but not much else? Very disappointing.

JohnRMurdoch (4259) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 30, 2016
12oz bottle from The Real Ale Company. Dark orange brown, beige head. Sweet grain malt aroma. Sweet bovril flavour. Sickly sweet malty aftertaste. Not my sort of beer.

Ysok02 (833) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2016
Superbe robe rousse, mousse crémeuse peu abondante. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes fumées, épicées, lardées sur un fond de malt torréfié et de café au lait. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche, droite, nette, une très belle ampleur, de l’équilibre, une grande longueur et une finale sur une fine amertume. Une très belle bière équilibrée.

Beerandhockey8 (340) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - MAR 28, 2016
From 12oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a dark amber color, thick tan head. Nose is huge roasted malt, caramel, light booze. Taste is medium-heavy bodied, sweet with touches of sourness as well. Finishes strong on the palate. Nice beer, love the complexity here.
