4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lovely aroma, malty and biscuity with a hint of miso. Cloudy amber appearance with a lot of suspended sediment. Well rounded taste, same qualities as the aroma. Very nice palate, slightly bubbly, quite smooth. Overall very drinkable!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance - a nice rusty red color which formed a foaming head which lingered ~ 1 min after pouring.
Smell - Not a very potent odor. Smells of alcohol a bit with a little bit of fruit possibly, but not very strong at all.
Taste - An upfront bitterness that seems to persist. while not heavily present at first, begin to get the alcohol taste a bit later.
Mouthfeel - A nice level of carbonation with an average body.
Overall - Not a bad beer, but not what it is lived up for or costs. Would not buy on any regularity and would choose other Founders beers over this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Founders Dirty Bastard has a medium, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, bubbly, deep copper appearance, and a lacing sheen left behind on the glass. The aroma is of some oak, sweetness, toffee, alcohol, and dark bread crust. Taste is of those elements, with low bitterness (even with 50 IBU) and a hint of citrus, oddly. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, to an extent, and Founders Dirty Bastard finishes wet and rich. RJT

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
A strong one, to be sure! Pretty ruby haze color, taste is caramel, bananas, smoke and booze. Solid Scotch Ale, not for those who are afraid to taste booze in the "heavies." Overall, a solid offering in a style that I am learning to appreciate slowly but surely.
