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

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - APR 28, 2010
Bottle. Dark ruby with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel and roasted malt, alcohol and hint of hops. The flavour is very malty with sweet caramel, smoke, notes of liquorice and bitterness. Smooth and medium-bodied.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2010
Pours a deep ruby red color with a thin head that gathers on the edges. In the nose there is caramel, bread, smoke, pine and light alcohol. The palate is medium in body, softly carbonated with a long finish. The taste is lightly sweet with malt and finishes dry and leafy with a touch of alcohol. This beer is nicely balanced, not overly sweet, complex and rewarding sip after sip.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2010
thanks to thenewguy for sharing! Hints of smoke and molasses with vanilla and hints of roasted malts. Pours a dark reddish amber with a thin white head that dissipates. Tobacco with molasses and caramel with an earthy bitterness, very malty with earthy grassy hop notes. Very nice Scotch Ale.

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2010
A- Body is a rich dark mahogany hue. Pours with a 2 finger creamy tan head that eventually tapers off into a thick collar and plenty of lacing is left behind in the glass. Body is translucent and lots of particles can be seen floating throughout. S-Deep, rich, and syrupy with chocolate malt dominating. Caramel malt and alcohol also make a strong presence. T- Flavor pretty consistent throughout. Roasted chocolate and caramel malts are the main characters here and they make a strong presence throughout. The taste sweetens for the finish but a big roasted bitterness lingers along with a medium alcohol burn. P- Big, thick, syrupy mouthfeel characteristic for the style. Carbonation is medium and does not get in the way of the smoothness of the mouthfeel. O- Ive only sampled a few from this style and this seems to be a solid example. ABV is normal for the style and alcohol presence plays a big role in this brew. Sweet caramel and roasted bitter chocolate mix well and leave behind a nice warmth. Decent overall-but I am confident I can find other examples of this style I enjoy more. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-10-2007 20:05:45

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2010
Red-amber color with off-white head. Complex malt profile - caramel, bread, biscuits - fruity hops, hints of vanilla and peat. Flavor malt dominated with a nip of fruity-op bitterness. Body is creamy with a smooth sweet finish.

slitcher (267) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2010
First of all, this is not my favorite style of beer; I am an IPA drinker. That being said, I really enjoyed this. Pours a dark ruby brown with a tan head. Aromas of caramel, bread, and a little alcohol. Flavor is rich, sweet, smokey, and a nice bit of hops. Alcohol is evident. Very nice for a Scotch ale; really like the hops in this. Excellent.

RyanMM (416) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2010
Pours ruby-tinged brown, moderate tan head that fades to thin and sparse lacing. Aroma of smoke, peat, and very malty. Thinner mouthfeel, kind of slick, moderate carbonation. Slightly sweet, a bit bitter, with some saltiness. Very complex and rewarding beer to drink.

italarican (1544) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2010
Pours a mahogany with standard white head. Aroma is of honey complemented by notes of pine and yeast. The honey/caramel sweetness takes a backseat to the pine hops (but only by a bit) in the flavor department. Slightly thin body with more a more hoppy finish than I expected or wanted. I expected more considering how much I love Backwoods Bastard.

Leighton (20792) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2010
Tap sample at New Beer Dist. Pours a dark ruby with moderate, off-white head. Nose of sweet malt, caramel, some heavy booze. Flavor is rich, plenty of sweetness, more caramel and some toffee, warm notes of scotch. Tail holds has some dark chocolate, coffee and some smoke. Sticky finish. Pretty nice.

curtis75 (31) - Glostrup, DENMARK - APR 9, 2010
Breadish aroma, like new baked bread and with a taste of strong alcohol and good hop, nice red colour but cloudy, I am going to drink this beer again.
