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

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 (1546) - 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.

Dark red ale with just a litte of head. Aroma of dark berries, caramel and sweet malts.Some smoke there too.Just a little bitter but sweet taste. Soft carbonation. Flows smoothly through your mouth without leaving you cold.

garza (573) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - OCT 24, 2010
Pours very dark red with a minimal head that tends to disappear. Amazing extra sweet aroma with hints of dry fruits like raisins or plums, some smokiness also but soft. Round malty and sweet taste with a smokey note, dark honey. Full body, creamy feeling, soft carbonation and medium after taste with dry finish.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle, beermerchants.com. Sweet and malty, with tobacco and rum flavours. A beer that is thick and chewy, rich and definitely best drunk in small doses. Did become a little bit cloying.

DuffMan (10048) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle. Beautiful deep red-orange, thick golden head. Sponge-toffee, breadcrusts, and light smoke aroma. Barley candy sweetness, chewy dark toffee, toast, light smoke, light spice in the finish. No hint of the ABV. Fantastic!

KnutAlbert (6750) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle from beermerchants. Very dark ruby, fluffy head. Fruit, smoke and soot in the nose. Compact mal which is supplemented by smoke and hops to make a lovely beer for sipping rather than gulping. Bacon, spearmint, campfires. Very well crafted, well balanced.
