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”

Very delicious beer. Nice, complex aroma; with a thick, lacey head. Some sediment in the bottom of the glass was the only negative. Malty start with a smooth, tasty finish. A little boozy, but a great session sipper.

leghorn99 (65) - Livorno, ITALY - MAR 31, 2015
Un insolito colore torbido, che si pone tra il mogano e il tonaca di frate, qualche riflesso rossastro; ed una piccola "testa" di schiuma beige, cremosa ma poco persistente. L’aroma è di buona intensità e pulizia, con una marcata dolcezza fatta di uvetta, fichi e datteri, melassa, biscotto al burro. In bocca, offre note di biscotto e toffee, uvetta e prugna, ma anche una leggera ossidazione; l’alcool è ben nascosto, se non per un lieve warming etilico finale, e la chiusura è leggermente amara. La birra ha un corpo medio, con una carbonazione bassa e una consistenza oleosa.

Pours clear copper brown with medium tan head. Aroma of raisins and toasty bread. Hints of roast and smoke too. Body is rich. Fairly sweet taste, but matched with moderately firm bitterness and a warm alcoholic punch.

VeinAle (100) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Boozy aroma. Cherry color pour, small head. In the mouth I’m getting a caramelized malt bomb with an early sweetness, and late bitter. Genuine article here.

SteveOrz85 (39) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2015
12 oz bottle to tulip. Two finger tan head, gone quick. Some lacing. Aroma of dry fruit and malt. Color is clear ruby. Taste is light to medium sweet. A light bitterness and maybe a touch of sour. Doughy, earthy, Carmel, and dried fruit are all present in the complex flavor. Slick to thick textured. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation. Long malty finish.
