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”

Fatehunter (2152) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. A nice inch of dirty-white head formed. Color is copper and red when held to the light, almost transparent. A rich malty smell. Dry barley. Smell is matched by the sweet malt and candy flavor that takes over this beer. There is a slight bitterness at the end. Syrupy with moderate carbonation. It feels like it is sticking to the sides of your mouth. Great Scotch style beer. It is not my personal favorite style but they have done a great job with it. No surprises.

12 oz pour from can into tulip. Pours deep brown, opaque, weak off-white head. Nose is sweet and malty, a little earthy. Body is medium to full, creamy. Taste is sweet, nutty, malty. Solid, easy to drink.

RedSox2004 (1606) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Medium brown with a dense one-finger off-white head and sticky lace. Rich malty aromas - bread, dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar and tobacco. Big bold malt sweetness with hints of smoke, yeast and alcohol and herbal hops. Medium to full body, chewy sticky mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a rich sweetness in the finish.

Tognetta (680) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JUL 28, 2016
Ambar avermelhado/marrom translúcido, espuma marrom claro de boa formação e persistência, linda. Caramelo e maltado intensos e nítidos, vanilla, leve amadeirado. No paladar aparece mais o amargor do lúpulo dividindo espaço com o dulçor caramelado. Corpo e carbonatação de média intensidade, bem dosados. Final tem um pouco de madeira, defumado residual, toffe queimado, licor de cacau. Álcool fica mais nítido com aumento da temperatura, mas bem inserido.

panzerwolf (254) - FINLAND - JUL 28, 2016
A very smoky, brisk taste with a small bite. Pine, caramel and the slightest taste of hops. A smooth beer, pleasant to drink!

unclefrito62 (60) - Stow, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2016
12 oz. can at the house. What a wonderful beer. Smoky and caramel are the aromas of this dark deep rich beer. Thin beige head, this thicker beer is complex with malt, caramel and a sweetness to it. Over all just Outstanding! Makings of a great winter warmer.

josanguapo (999) - SPAIN - JUL 27, 2016
From XXXII. In Teku glass. Playing Grim Fandango Remastered. Standard interpretation of the style. Nothing bad in it but there are better, cheaper and more easily accessible interpretations of that style, like the Gordon’s one

KeefOz (1495) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2016
Poured a deep coppery-brown with a slight translucence and an orangey-tan dense foam head that retained very well and laced OK. Carbonation moderate and fine. Aroma of sweet rich malty caramels and alcohol. Taste initially with slightly roasted malts, very sweet toffee/caramel malts and sweet dark fruits; low bitterness; alcohol throughout taste profile masks other flavours. Medium body. Smooth, soft, clean, slightly creamy and a bit syrupy but too much alcohol on the finish.

mgajdaczewa (1575) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 16, 2016
W aromacie słodycz, karmel, tostowość, masa rodzynek, szlachetnego utlenienia w stronę sherry. W smaku podobnie, bardziej tostowe niż karmelowe, słodkie suszone owoce przełamane naprawdę potężną, ale krótką goryczką o lekko ziemistym, przypalonym tostowym charakterze. Wzorowo ukryty alkohol, pije się bardzo łatwo. Świetne!
