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 a dark reddish brown with a slight tannish white head that quickly dies off. The beer has a spicy, sweet aroma of malts, caramel, vanilla and brown sugar. Flavor is full or malts up front with a lot of raisin and figs. The taste is kind of earthy with some alcohol on the finish, just the right amount to know its there but doesn?t overwhelm. The body on this one is medium to heavy, almost syrupy with low to medium carbonation. Overall a great beer, one of my favorite scotch ales.

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.

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.

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.
