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”

Chocolate, coffee and rich malt aromas, deep ruby, wears a tiny tan head. Flavours of fine malt, butterscotch and mocha. Medium bodied, well balanced, smooth, mellow and warming. Terrific! Thanks radiomgb.

Pours a deep brownish crimson with a medium-light tan head that turns to a bubbly film. A sweet aroma of caramel malt and rasins fills the nose with the presence of smoke, though not overwhelmingly so. The flavor is also fairly sweet, caramel and maple followed with a small smokey peat note. A somewhat bitter alcohol/hop flavor comes out in the finish which feels a bit awkward, though it’s not really off putting. The beer is both malty and smooth over the tounge...a nice solid body that finishes both dry and a bit bitter. A toasty beer, though I was hoping for a bit more peat to come out and perhaps a tad more smoke. Fairly easy to drink, though I don’t think drink more than one or two in a night. A great cool weather beer to be sure.

Dark amber. Small, frothy, tan head settles completely. Aroma of roasty malt, subtle, smokey peat, and moderate hop presence. Same flavor, surprisingly well balanced, a bit of alcohol in the finish. I’d like more smoke and more peat in a scotch ale. Full, smooth body. Great brew, but needs more scotch.

NachlamSie (2809) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2006
draught. A dark red which appears almost black at the thicker regions of the glass and a tan head. The aroma is quite biscuity with a sparkling acidity. The flavor is very bready and sweet with a biting bitterness and subtle citrus notes. Earthy, smokey coffee is hinted at in the finish. The caramel comes through about then as well. Interesting.

Draught. Pours crystalline cherrywood color with thin khaki head. The aroma is sweet and malty with some caramel and a touch of alcohol. The flavor is malty and earthy with some bitter chocolate and molasses and some caramel in the finish.

I thought this was prett good...on tap at brewery. Poured a dark brown with not head. Aroma was spicey, malty, and very sweet. Flavor was a syrupy sweet malt, toffee, and heavy spice. Mouthfeel was quite light, but also kind of sticky. Not very much like a scotch ale, but still pretty good.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Bottle: Pours a dark ruby color with no head and lacing at all. Aroma is malty with hints of spices, raisins and plums. Mouthfeel is creamy and like a cola body leaving a sticky bitter finish. Alcohol is evident but not powerful in the aroma and finish. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

When poured I was surprised to see a hint of red in the color. This is mostly brown, with not much head and a slight red tint. The aroma is what really caught my attention. A very malty scent, but I caught the faintest bit of fruitiness to it. The taste is slightly sugary, and has the faintest hint of spice. It swallows smooth and leaves a short lived aftertaste I enjoy more than the flavor.
