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

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.

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.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2011
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy ruby pour with a thin tan head. Malty and smoky aroma at the start with some caramel hiding behind it. Flavor begins with a sweet and smoky flavor that gives way to a lightly sweet caramel malt middle and then a rather aggressively hopped finish. Bitter and smoky on the aftertaste.

JohnnyMummbles (151) - Pitman, New Jersey, USA - JAN 13, 2011
12oz bottle pours a deep redish brown beer that almost appears purple under light, with a very slight off white head. Aroma is somewhat sweet upfront with slight notes of yeast and bread. Taste is somewhat sweet upfront but is very well balanced with hops and a slight bitterness that round out this beer. A very complex beer that works, a great beer.

riseagainstme (48) - Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2011
12 oz Bottle. Hazy caramel color with a tan head. Toffee and caramel nose, toast, alcohol as it warms. Roasty malt flavor, brown sugar, tiny bit of smoke and chocolate. Easy drinking for ABV.
