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”

BrettTaylor (622) - Radford, Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours a medium brown with copper hints. Nearly no head at all. Aroma - definitely some smoky peat notes, malty. Taste follows suit with lots of caramel, smoky notes, and dark malt. Chewy mouthfeel and long finish.

MarkoNm (1109) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a dark brown color, topped with a decent beige head. Malty aroma, some caramel notes and some not-so-nice soy sauce aroma. Later develops into a very pleasant chocolate aroma. Taste is sweet and very malty. Some chocolate notes and hints of alcohol. Bittery in the finish. Pretty nice.

Maxbier (591) - Maryland, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Dark brown with light brown head. Sweet sticky slightly musty toffee malt aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy sticky. Boozy caramel and toffee flavors with light bittering. Tasty winter style beer to be fussed over and deconstructed. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
