Bottle from a shop in Sao Paulo. The dirty bastard is dark red brown colored with a smooth tan head. It is a very malty ale with caramel, toffee and smoke aroma as well as the expected alcohol and some roastiness. Sweet taste with some fruity-hoppiness in the finish. The body is strong and thick as it should be with a warm alcoholic finish.

Pours dark brown with decent head. At first didnít get a lot of flavor, but complexity started to show as beer warmed up a bit. Taste of raosted malts predominate. I didnít notice any smoke. Very enjoyable.

Reddish brown with tan head. Soft aroma, sweet caramel. Taste is sweet, caramel, malty, mild alcohol and no bitterness. Medium to full body. Very good but I get no hops and no smoke. Wonder if I got an old bottle. Feel like Iím drinking curmudgeon.

Brown/deep red appearance with a light brown head. Smells of scotch, sweet toffee and malts. Tasting a very slight coffee with toffee and molasses. Thereís some spice in there with with a hint of gently burnt toffee. The sweetness and bitterness balance out really well - this is an extremely well rounded beer. Really dense mouth feel, gentle carbonation and beautiful lingering thick after feel. This is great.

Pure caramel and burnt sugar followed by spicy toffiness and a thick sugary hit with an even coating of the mouth both in flavour and bitterness. The 8% is hidden perfectly

Dirty Bastard is basically everything you want a Scotch Ale to be: boozy, rich, complex. Providing an excellent balance between bitter and malty, Founders did a fantastic job of giving some spicy edge to this immense malt bomb on an ale. Flavors of dark fruits, toffee, smoked peat, and roasted malt make the strongest impressions. Expect a full-bodied mouthfeel with some pleasant alcohol warmth (and added sweetness), as well. This ale may be called Dirty Bastard, but it certainly makes a clean getaway.
