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

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Bottle. Spicy caramel malt aroma. Cloudy reddish amber body, small light tan head. Flavor is very assertively malty, with a definite alcohol kick, and a somewhat bitter finish. Not a glass one can easily ignore; does not fail to make an impression.

hogan873 (451) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Reddish-amber body with a clinging tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, brown sugar, and just a hint of smoke. Formadible, silky palate. Very nice flavor consisting of malty sweet goodness up front with brown sugar and butterscotch notes. Some nice dark fruit flavor mixes in right before the smoke and whiskey warming. Quite nice finish...a delicious and easy to drink beer.

reggiedunlop (3709) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2009
pours a deep caramel to ruby color with a creamy light tan head. aroma is slightly sweet with hints of vanilla and smoke. mouthfeel is slightly heavy and silky. flavor is very complex with a touch of fruit (maybe fig?) and some scotch and smoke ending in a lingering dry finish that leaves smoke and oak flavors behind. excellent beer!

beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with moejuck. Pours a deep red-tinted amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted until about mid-glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and brown sugar with just a hint of earthy peat. The flavor is very nice with malt, brown sugar, dates, and a stronger dose of smoke and peat than the aroma suggests. Some mild alcohol warming towards the finish, especially as the beer sits for a bit. Enjoyable!

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Pours dark brown with off-white head. Aroma is of malty sweetness, fruits, some liquor and plenty of hops. Flavor is similar, with a bit of peet and grapefruit. Slight bitter finish. Very good.

jmm635 (1004) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Dark amber color with a big tan head. Aromas of malts, caramel, surprisingly strong on the hops, and whiff of woody scotch. Flavor is pretty similar. Again, a surprising amount of hops. I thought the scotch flavor left me with a very dry mouth.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Good Scotch ale. Pours amber with a thin head. Aroma is mainly malt. Flavor of malt, caramel, dark fruit, and some sugar. Had a lot more body than a normal scotch ale. Good stuff.

sebletitje (9951) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2008
courtesy of frampin. Pours amber - ruby with mahogany head. Aroma is biscuity and malty with light roastiness. Taste, caramel malts, grainy mouthfeel, light chocolate and dark fruits. Very enjoyable like all Founders beers, and fits the style very well.

almost no head into amber body. aromas of moderate caramel and moderate citrus and a touch of soap. flavor is light bittersweet throughout. long finish duration. slightly stickly mouthfeel. pretty darn good.
