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”

Temptation (253) - - MAR 7, 2013
Dark brown, copper color, opaque and with dark reddish glitters. Beige head, shortlasting and an almost absent lace. Aromas to toffee, raisins, dried plums, butterscotch, caramel and hints of smoke and coffee. Perfect balance in mouth, sweet of caramel, brown sugar and rhum and American hops bitterness. Long development and a great, bitter finish. Creamy texture, low carbonated and medium to high body. Really extraordinary beer.

Mr_Pink_152 (1650) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle from the Lincoln Beer Festival. Deep ruby colour with a tan head. Dark fruity aroma, taste is toffee sweet. May be just a touch to sweet.

RasmusOtt (1489) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2015
From bottle. (aged). Pours unclear mahogany with a beige head. Aroma of ripe plums, caramel, butterscotch, some plums, figs and nice sweet malts in general. Taste is sweet but with some bitterness as well. Bitter nuts, caramel, ripe sweet fruits and some weak sweet esters. Ends with a weak almost vinous note at the end. Very good!

furthur (357) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle, deep brown beer, a little almond colored froth. Aroma is malt an caramel, raisin, faint vanilla. Taste is caramely malt, raisin and dark fruit, faint coffee, cola, some clove even. Finish even has a bit of anise. Palate is smooth and rich, carbonation subdued. This is super. If all scotch ales were this good it might be my favorite style!

One of the best beers in one of the best categories of beer: Scottish style ale. Medium-full body with a long finish. Very malty and roasty. Finishes clean. Overall a good beer drinking experience.

Sarlacc83 (1220) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Tap at Apex, post CBC A: Brown bordering on mahogany, creme head, some lacing. N: Toffee, leather, ample malt, hints of smoke, some vanilla and wood undertones, peppercorn and earth from (I assume) the hops, rounded out with raisin and prune. T: Quite sweet, a bit of char and bitterness to balance. M: Medium body, creamy carbonation, hint of alcohol. O: A tasty toasty Scotch ale. One of the foremost in Founders’ arsenal, and a beer I would be more than happy to have again. Will be curious to compare this to Alesmith’s Wee Heavy.
