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

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 On tap at Rustico in September 2009. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a nice beige head and plenty of lacing as it goes down. The smell is quite enticing with overpowering roasted malts, toffee, caramel, a little bit of wood and vanilla, and a bit of brown sugar sweetness. The taste is all the same with the malts dominating. Medium-bodied and smooth, this one was very, very drinkable. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-05-2009

Bottle: Pour is dark brown with amber highlights - very modest off white head that retains fairly poorly, really. Nice sweet toffee, peat aroma on the nose. Unfortunately I keep thinking to myself ; why cant this be backwoods bastard. (long gone from the shelves) - But let me continue; Medium bodied, fairly sweet - flavors are toffee and caramel malts, a hint of peat, a touch roastiness, finishing with a creamy feel in spite of the hop bitterness. Its really an excellent beer. Unfortunately - its second tier.

Its dark, red amber with a creamy, golden head and the aroma has loads of malt, caramel, light candy-sugar, licorice and fruits. The flavour is sweet with heavily malted notes of caramel, candy-sugar, licorice, alcohol and fruit, and the finish is dry with a light bitterness.

Dark, viscous looking reddish brown pour with a thin cappuccino head. Loads of sweet malt aroma. Chocolate, caramel. Its faint, but I think Im getting just a trace of hops. Hits your mouth almost like an imperial stout. Full body coats your mouth with roasted malt flavor. The vague smoky profile becomes a little more evident after a few sips. Nice bitter finish that stays for about 10 seconds.

ClubGonzo (5663) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a hazy, deep mahogany brown body with a creamy, medium off-white head. Aroma is smooth, deep toffee and caramel, with some vanilla and hints of chocolate and berries in the back. Taste is as smooth as the mouthfeel; a pure toffee pleasure trip gently streaming down my throat. This is good. A regular malt-fest going on here; some toffee, some sweet caramel appearing mid-palate and some roastiness towards the end. Very pleasant drinking, and though the alcohol is warming it is still very well integrated. A pleasure to drink, and the excellently crafted, creamy mouthfeel makes for EITHER a sipper or a faster-drinking beer. This is one dirty bastard ye jees gottu luv! :-D

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Notes from Wednesday, September 15 2010 Ar: Caramel, dried fruit, malt. Ap: Pours a deep brown-red with a 1/2" light cinnamon head that fades quickly and leaves little lace. F: Very complex up front - dried figs, smoke, and a bit of chocolate. It finishes with a bourbon-like bite. However, I find the sweetness to be a bit cloying, even with the hop bitterness on the finish. P: Thick, chewy body with semi-high carbonation. O: Not a style I have that often, but this is quite good.
