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 ďainít fer the wee ladsĒ

Pours very dark brown, with ample tan head. Aroma of malts. Taste is rich and malty, not too sweet. A good solid scotch ale, thumbs up.

Bottle. Strangely, Iíve never rated this til now... and itís even stranger given that the BA version of this is one of my favorite annual treats. Anyhow, deep Amber-brownish pour, medium tan head. Nose is malty, candy sugar, maple, toffee, butterscotch, tobacco, fragrant wood. Mouth is medium bodied, sweetness giving over to bitterness and then to toasted oakiness, caramel, nutty, pumpernickel, raisins. Tasty brew. SlŠinte.

fuzzcro (182) - Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2016 Delicious Scotch ale. Looks great in a glass with a nice head that laces beautifully. Has a nice punch with ABV 8.5 yet easy to drink with a nice bit of sweet smoke flavor.

Bottle. Pours with plenty of short lasting head. Quite boozy with malty caramel toffee. Too much alchohol for my liking
