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 aint fer the wee lads

michaelinwa (635) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Reddish brown, with a low head and moderate carbonation. Malty but not very sweet, and this works well. Balanced with some hop bitterness, nice. Alcohol very well hidden. Its a good beer. Wish it was bottle conditioned though.

On tap, Pours a brown amber color with a small tan head. Nose is rich malts, citrus, nutty. Taste is similar with a slight bitter finish. Slightly sweet, but still rich and hoppy. A good example of a scotch ale. I still like Oskar Blues Old Chub a little better though.

Huhzubendah (2994) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 9, 2012
On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer appears dark brown, with crimson hues evident when held to the light. The beer arrives with a half inch of head that generates some decent lacing as it recedes. The beer is slightly smoky, with a sweet malt character evident in both the aroma and flavor. A subtle roast aspect contributes to the flavor profile, and a surprising hop bitterness in the back adds the finishing touch. The feel is medium bodied, with a healthy level of carbonation. A good, but not great, example of the style. Id drink it again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-21-2011

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle; dark caramel hue with minimal head; nose is boozy malt, hints of smoke and caramel; flavor is rich, sweet malts with light smoke, peat, and warming alcohol throughout, light bitterness to help balance, finishes slightly sweet and close to burning; thick texture, full body, low carbonation; overall, a very stiff/strong malt-forward scotch ale with plenty of malt tones to accentuate the over-riding alcohol presence.
