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

ben4321 (6067) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle from Wine and Beer Westpark, 12/6/09

Aroma: Nose of dark berries, caramel, toast, sugar, wood, and some earthy hops
Appearance: A deep, dark reddish-brown color with a small head
Flavor: Big sweet flavor up-front, fruits/sugar/bread, and a nice hop presence in the later palate
Palate: This beer has a smooth mouthfeel, medium-full body, and long duration
Overall Impression: I found this beer to be really enjoyable. In fact, Ive found pretty much everything Ive had from this brewery to be pretty darn enjoyable. They just make a lot of really quality beers. This one was quite good, a great flavor profile, nice looking, nice throughout the full palate. Well done by Founders with this one. I picked up a bunch of Founders at Wine and Beer Westpark, and Im glad I did, because they make some really nice brews.

Pours a deep, dark, brown with little to no head. Whatever head there was laced nicely as it went down. Aroma, is caramel, chocolate, and maybe a hint of peat. Mouth feel is medium and a bit chewy with minimal carbonation. Taste is fairly sweet. Lots of caramel and chocolate notes. I could pick out a few notes of smoke and peat, however, would have enjoyed more. Malt is offset by a nice hoppy bite at the end that helps avoid it becoming cloying. For the abv, this is easy to drink and can creep up on you. Id definitely would let this warm a bit, as the complexities come out the longer it sits. Im not very well versed in the style, but from the scotch ales that Ive tried, this would rank up there pretty high.

DialSquare (4670) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2009
12oz bottle brought down by inlaws from Andersons in Toledo. Red brown pour with a smallish off-white head and some spotty stick. Aromas of caramelized sugar, earthy roasted malts and a light bourbon vibe. Full toffee malt and dried fruit taste. Little to no carbonation on the tongue.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2009
355 ml bottle. Hazy dark mahogany. Medium-sized thick creamy light beige head that clings to the glass. Feels thick and rich. Carbonation level is fairly low and the beer has high viscosity. Rich caramel flavours with toffee and chocolate. Thick and oily texture. Notes of paper and candy sugar. Sweet, but not really that sweet given the otherwise rich and viscous beer. Very tasty.

deyholla (10793) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 On tap. Poured a clear dark reddish brown with a thin light brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma was full of sweet grains with a bit of darkness and toffee underlying. Flavor begins with sweet grains and toffee and has some dark bread in the finish.
