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 aint fer the wee lads

Great caramelized smell. Thick head. Dark amber appearance. Odd balance of malt and hops...slightly too malt. Tastes like burnt wood, but its good.

Appearance: pours with a medium to small beige head, the beer is a very dark clear ruby color, Aroma: malty, possibly some smoke, sweet, caramel, faint alcohol, some bread, some hops, not overly strong but complex Taste: malt of course, bread, sweet, molasses, caramel, plum, alcohol Palate: this stuff is thick in the mouth, high alcohol burn, slight bitter aftertaste, soft carbonation Overall: not bad but not a beer Id really seek out, too much alcohol in the taste for me

Pours a rich dark red with a thin smooth beige head. Aroma of dark fruits. Body is refreshingly medium and very smooth in carbonation. Flavour is bitter and creamy malt. Finish is silky and bitter. Easy to drink.

From bottle. Pours a dark red with minimal tan head. Sweet nose with cherry and a hint of alcohol. Very clean for a Scotch ale with subtle hints of peat and smoke. Big finish with some hops coming through. Seem to get something new with each sip. Very good.

Clear red pour with a thin head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is sweet, hints of roast & sugar. Medium mouth. Taste is sugary with some alcohol notes present. Grain and slightly smokey. Leaves a sweet aftertaste that hangs around for a while.
