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

Countbeer (6556) - 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.

Beerowulf (112) - , Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark ruby with thin head. Aroma of berries. Strong alcohol sweeps into the nostrils upon first sip. Taste of malt and some licorice. Smoke evident. Delicious offering and another winner from Founders.

Keil (171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Aroma is a rich sweetness with a hop presence. Pours a deep, rich dark red. Taste is sweet at first but finishes up with a cloying bitterness. Very chewy body. Pretty tasty/

(12oz bottle courtesy of guyinchicago. Thanks Chuck!). Pours cloudy mahogany with huge tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of marachino cherry (?), some smoke and caramel. Taste is sweet with noticeable alcohol. Full bodied with slick texture. Very nice beer.

teorn88 (7647) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 22, 2010
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.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2010
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.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Extremely dark brown pour with a half finger beige head. The aroma holds nutty roasted malts, caramel, raisin, fig, date, plum, caramelized brown sugar, chocolate, and a slight hint of grapefruit hops. The flavor is peaty caramel and cocoa nib with a powerful dark fruit back drop that leaves the slightest roast on the tongue. The palate is rich and full with a silky body, low carbonation, and a dry finish.

jsmerig (1578) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2010
pours a deep red with a foamy tan head. Aroma chocolate licorice. Amazing. I could smell this for hours. flavor is amazingly malty. the licorice comes through in the flavor amazingly well. The sweetness is slightly counterbalanced by a smoky alcohol flavor at the finish. I love scotch ales and this is now my favorite. Salud.

Shrews629 (193) - Kentucky, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Hazy amber with burnt orange/yellow highlights around the bottom. Moderate tan head with modest retention and nice lacing. Looks pretty good in the glass. Very delightful malty aroma of bread and caramel. Very, very well balanced. Both really stand out and are very alluring. Lightly roasted and somewhat fruity. Peachy smelling. Rich malt in the taste with some light caramel. Actually has a walnut dryness in the taste. Very nice. Some alcohol warmth invades the flavor in a very welcoming way. Full bodied mouthfeel that is extremely dry and leaves a wealth on the palate. Some alcohol is left on the tongue and the roof of the mouth. Feels wonderful. Chewy even. This is a great brew, however I probably wouldnt be able to have more than 2 at a time due to the high ABV. It was very nice on this cold December night. This is also a nice after dinner brew in my opinion. The alcohol comes in nicely and exits easily.

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2010
Thin beige head. Hazy deep red body is just barely translucent because of all the small particles. Fruity dusty caramelly aroma with earthy licorice and toffee notes. Dry-sweet delicate roasty earthy chocolate taste with caramelly toffee and dust notes. Fullish body. Mild mouthfeel. Dry roasty resiny caramel aftertaste with chocolatey coffee, raisins, and creme brulee notes. Absolutely outstanding. Lovely malt character. (0.355l bottle, Hndverkerstuene, Oslo.)
