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

Forsberg_dk (258) - DENMARK - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle, pours reddish brown, aroma of diacetyl, molasses, malt, dough, caramel, taste follows the nose but has way too much diacetyl for my liking, very sweet as well.

vikingguy (1096) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Pours a dark amber. Sweet malt and dark fruit aroma. Taste is very rich...toffee, dates, figs, whiskey, roasted malt, vanilla, and some alcohol. Full body, oily texture. This was good, but a bit too rich for my liking.

esp0r (2845) - NORWAY - FEB 4, 2011
Bottle at Olympen Oslo. Ruby red with a light nonlasting head. Smells of smoke and malts. Taste is the same. Much whisky cask influence here. The hops and finish is more reserved.

thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Strong Scotch ale, very bitter and potent, dark color, complex flavor, heavy malt flavor evident, almost a barrel aged smoked flavor to it as well, definitely a sipper, but excellent cold weather beer, worthy of praise.

mybrainhurts (395) - North Dakota, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Deep aroma of plums, dates, ripe cherries, and aged caramel. Dark fruits, molasses, toffee, and caramel for flavors. Roasted, chewy finish. Hearty and warming. I only wish there had been a peat presence... that would have indeed uped the score.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle. Deep brown, copper-glinting at the edges. Slim cappuccino foam, aerated like its been whisked and diminishing by the second. Rich, buttery shortbread nose studded with milk-chocolate coated raisins and M+Ms. Sweet, chalky and heavily raisin-accented with notes of brown Smartie, M+M, muscovado sugar and a whiff of the annoying peach air freshener of the Centennial IPA. Zero smoke, peat, hop...who needs it? A seductive, sugary, Belgian-aping, doppelbockesque morass of dark fruits and sugars so sweet you dont notice the sledgehammer of booze swinging squarely down on the back of your skull. Good session beer.

abemorsten (3593) - Mostery, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2011
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear mahogany with a finger thick, creamy brown-orange head. Sweet dried fruits, wood and prune in the aroma and a whiff of smoke. First flavor impression has sweet dried fruits wrapped around alcohol that reveals itself in the finish along with the bitterness. Full bodied, syrupy and gently carbonated.

Beer5000 (6322) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2011
355 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Dark reddish brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma of dark, roasted malt, caramel, dry fruit and alcohol. Flavor is sweet and light roasted malt, caramel, dry fruit, balanced bitter and warming alcohol. Bitter and alcoholic warming aftertaste. Very nice.

Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2011
bottle from bierkompass!!! A dark orange-brown beer pours with a good, fine, flat head. The smell is malty sweet, subtle caramel. Starts malty sweet, barely alcoholic for 8.5%. The further course remains dominant sweet malty with mild roasted flavor and a touch of berry fruits. The aftertaste appears to be relatively neutral, also sweet malty with good roasted notes. To finish it gets a little bitter, the hops come through more and more.

mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2011
12oz bottle, ruby red pour, little lacing, nothing much of an aroma, a little caramel and burnt malts, Im not sure, the brew doesnt have any of the caramel sweetness Im used to in a scotch, interesting.
