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

Thanks to Tony from OTH for the share. Pours deep amber-brown with a white head. Nose is malt, maple, sweetness, slight raisin, and brown sugar. Flavor is similar with maple, dark malt, and a clean finish. Very enjoyable scotch ale.

Bottle. Pours a nice deep dark amber color with a frothy tan head. Aroma is like a malt bomb filled with sweet, bready and caramelly malts, i also get some dark fruit and a slight hint of wood. Flavor is of the sweet, bready and caramelly malts along with alot of dark fruit and wood. I also get some alcohol and a slight amount of roast. The body is medium to full with a sliky smooth mouthfeel. Overall a really nice beer from Founders, its a real Autumn beer!

Reddish brown in color with a malty aroma. Sweet, malty, but with a pine and earthy flavor. Full bodied and balanced.

Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Chestnut pour with a light tan head which soon goes. Very enticing nose. Plenty of caramel, raisins and toffee. Has a sweet and fruity feel too. Flavours of toffee, licorice, some coffee, dark fruits and a little sweet spice. Dry, bitter-sweet finish. Nice.

Bottled. A reddish brown beer with a creamy but small beige head. Aroma is malty and fruity, notes of dried fruits, caramel and burnt sugar. Taste is also malty and bittersweet, strong caramel notes, raisins and plums. Sweet after taste. Nice texture. Very good beer

12 oz. bottle. Pours deep brown with tan head. Initial taste was bearable but the after taste was to smokey. Not to knowledgeable about beers but i dont think scotch ales are for me. Pricey to boot, so this one gets the boot!

Rich malty flavors are nice: slight figs, caramel, with a finishing bit of citrusy hop bitterness. The thing that takes this one a bit off the rails is the alcohol, which is omnipresent. In the nose, I get a slight quiver of the nostrils from the overwhelming alcohol. The palate notices it too and even burns a bit for it. A good option if you like boozier, sweeter beers. In spite of my review for BT, I will claim neutrality.

bth122 (1536) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Poured a dark amber ruby color and cloudy. Minimal head. Malty aroma (nuts caramel). Aroma has a strong presence. Light to med sweetness. Starts off sweet and malty on the tongue. Finished smokey alchohol taste with nice blend of hop. Complex. Light bitterness at end. Medium body, soft carbonation. Long finish. Good sipping style beer. Would get again.
