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

Here in CT we have "Ten Penny Ale", which is also a flagship scotch ale, from a different brewery. But, Ten Penny is more of a session beer - not on the same level as this monster. Very strong flavor, lots of alcohol and smoked malt. A good choice for whisky drinkers. Lots of caramel sweetness and roasted malts as well. Resiny hops for balance. Very impressive.

oldrtybastrd (4886) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Pours a nice dark brown, almost black. Aromas of chocolate, with hints of nut and smoke. Flavor is a nice creamy chocolate with a bittersweet aftertaste. This is one hell of a beer.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 This is a pretty good beer. Its got a nice medium body with a nice creamy mouth feel. You can taste the malts in the beer, but it balances out for a nice overall taste, and it is a beautifully nice red amber with a nice white head.

minihame2 (372) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Clear, intensely deep red colour with thick and creamy light brown head. Great aroma, plenty of malty sweetness, syrup, caramel and some toast. Pleasant taste, also has strong malty flavour, ends in a bit of hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel is slick, oily, low in carbonation. Great tasting beer, very rich in flavour, highly enjoyable.

Graham77 (383) - SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2016
355ml bottle. Reddish/brown colour. Minimal carbonation and head in my bottle (BB 02/07/16). Aroma of cocoa, syrup, caramel. Taste very sweet with light bitterness and umami? I think it is present here in the aftertaste. The flavour is excellent, I suspect though that the stated ingredients are not the only ones in this brew.

From notes: Bottle from Alko. Thick malty body, a bit sweet, alcohol and caramel flavor. Not much hoppiness, just a lot of malts, alcohol. Strong and complex.

dnicolaescu (1670) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 29, 2016
BOTTLE 12 OZ. Clear ruby, beige head. The aroma is quite simple - caramel dominated, some malty and spicy notes. The taste is similar, with lots of caramel (but not at all sticky), a strong peppery bitterness with toasted bread notes. Just a touch of alcohol and a smooth easy drinking body. Nice, even though a bit too simple.

Malt, karamell, sötma, humle. Mörk röd öl med ett smutsvitt skum som länge lämnar rester i glaset. Riktigt trevlig öl! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
