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”

Bottle. This beer really comes to life as it warms up. Raisin, toffee, and alcohol on the nose. Syrupy mouth feel. Strong raisin and caramel flavors with a noticeable warming sensation. Reminds me a lot of Dogfish's Raison D'être ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
