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”

Pours dark brownish amber. Aroma is light. Taste is smooth and very drinkable. Overall it is quite good but a little lacking in some aspects.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

tap at Taphouse (Copenahgen) hazy brown and amber with a small white head. Roasted caramel malty aroma withfruity hops note. Fruity, light metallic, roasted caramel. Growing bitterness into a fruity flavoured finish.

355ml bottle from The Perfect Pour, Maryland. Pours a cloudy dark ruby with a yellow head. Aromas of chocolate, red wine, roast malt. Flavors are similar, sweet up front, with a good spicy bitter finish. Very creamy and boozy.

oldrtybastrd (4887) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Pours a nice dark brown, almost black. Aromas of chocolate, with hints of nut and smoke. Flavor is a nice creamy chocolate with a bittersweet aftertaste. This is one hell of a beer.

Hopper8 (25) - Holland, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 This is a pretty good beer. It’s got a nice medium body with a nice creamy mouth feel. You can taste the malts in the beer, but it balances out for a nice overall taste, and it is a beautifully nice red amber with a nice white head.

minihame2 (374) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Clear, intensely deep red colour with thick and creamy light brown head. Great aroma, plenty of malty sweetness, syrup, caramel and some toast. Pleasant taste, also has strong malty flavour, ends in a bit of hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel is slick, oily, low in carbonation. Great tasting beer, very rich in flavour, highly enjoyable.

Graham77 (384) - SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2016
355ml bottle. Reddish/brown colour. Minimal carbonation and head in my bottle (BB 02/07/16). Aroma of cocoa, syrup, caramel. Taste very sweet with light bitterness and umami? I think it is present here in the aftertaste. The flavour is excellent, I suspect though that the stated ingredients are not the only ones in this brew.

Beer has a nice taste and aroma and the after taste is not that bad. Overall an okay beer but nothing special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
