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

badwhale (420) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Pours a reddish brown, with little head, and not much lacing. Smells faintly of whiskey, or scotch, and beer. Has a dry scotch taste, mixed with some maltiness. Not much hops going on. Pretty good. Leaves a kinda watery mouthfeel.

IluvatarMilan (282) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle @ EODT10 Pours a rich murky brown, opaque body with a creamy, light brown head. Intense aroma of pine, strong hops, liquor and potent dark malts. Very promising. Taste is incredible, the aromas above return in the taste but are quickly overpowered by a rich, broad palate of medium bitter hops, caramel, toffee, cream. Like a brown variety of imperial stout. Great balance between smoothness, piney hops and bitterness.

Countbeer (6470) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle @ EODT10: Light yellow beige foamy head on top of a cloudy dark orange to brown beer. Smell is a very balanced mix of oatmeal, caramel, toffee, liquorice, milk chocolate, liquor, malts and cookie. Taste is a big wow! A very well bitter sweet balanced mix of toasted/roasted malts, hints of coffee and liquorice, caramel, brown sugars, toffee and hints of dark fruit and hops. Light grassy, full spiced dark fruity malt mix in the aftertaste. Low carbo, full body and soft mouthfeel.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark ruby-brown color with a medium off-white head. Good lacing and mostly lasting foam. Aroma is intense coffee and chocolate, with lots of roasted notes. A decise hops presence is there too. Hints of alcohol, vanilla and wood too. Taste is similar but more inclined towards the roasted-woody side. Finish is hoppy, dry and smokey. Palate is medium/full with a good amount of carbonation.

Bottle at home. Dark brown clear pour, thin creamy off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, candi sugar and some spicy hops. Flavor is somewhat bitter, mostly sweet and quite spicy with some fresh bread, a hint of peat and decent roasty malts. Very nice balance and thick body. Nice brew.
