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”

Its pretty scotchy. Some traces of doughy barnyard basement aromas soaked in cooked vegetables and resin.

JohnRMurdoch (4229) - 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 (790) - 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 (334) - 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.

Pour is dark reddish amber, small tan head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, cherry, roasted nuts, spices. Very well balanced and rich yet refreshing. Sweet overall with good hop bitterness to balance. Fruity and malty with slight smoke and peat. Average carb. and med. to full body. Recommended.

Lambister (425) - FINLAND - MAR 21, 2016
355 ml bottle from our lovely monopoly. Pours hazy brown to dark amber with a tight small off-white head. Roasted caramel malty aroma with a distinct hops note, bit of wood notes. Fruity, light metallic, roasted caramel and prune flavoured. Balanced and tasty in all aspects.
