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”

burg326 (3248) - Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Poured a dark red/amber color with a nice maly, chocolate, boozy aroma that blends well when you drink it. Each sip left me wanting more.

hirigalzkar (2119) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours beautifully red-brown with a small golden head. The aroma is too buttery to be really enjoyable. Taste is sweet of toffee and has got a warming finish. Smooth.

Benzai (6440) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark brown / red colored beer. Smell chocolate and burned malts. Taste a lot of chocolate and malts. Nice carbonation, medium body.

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark copper brown color with a kahki head that settles to a thin film and collar. Aroma is roasted malt and licorice and some caramel. Taste is more malty roasted caramel and light anise with some woodiness as well. Palate is full slick and a little creamy that finishes dry. One of the better Scotch ales I’ve had, even though I am not a huge fan of the style!

A soild beer, not really on the scotch ale train myself, but I did find this beer to be well balanced, and very drinkable. Solid hop profile, big smoked earthy malt flavor. If its a style you enjoy seek this beer out its very enjoyable.

12oz bottle dark brown with an off white almost yellow color that lingers with decent lacing. medium bodied scottish ale sweet malty flavor that lingers on the tongue. well balanced hop. the warmer the beer got the better the flavor.

Pours a scotch color with a white head. Smells of brown sugar and molasses. I like these flavors. Not a hug fan of scotch ales but still pretty tasty.
