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

jamaty (1984) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 10, 2016
Bonito color caoba, muy oscura con buena espuma cremosa ocre. Buen aroma, de predominio dulce y licrico. En boca presenta cuerpo moderado y un excelente tono ricamente malteado, acaramelada, de cierta complejidad: fruto seco, chocolate, notas de madera, licor... que deja rico postgusto

Antzrhere (96) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2016
Pours ruby brown with caramel head which colapses to a lacing. Looks great. Aroma of burnt caramel and iron. At first I was not a massive fan of the aroma, found it a bit metallic, but it grew on me right up until the end. The taste if sweet burnt caramel, smoke, molasses, spice. Reminded me of a slightly spicier Old Tom by Robinsons Brewery which is also 8.5% abv.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2016
As braw a Scotch ale as ever crossed this gullet. If the score seems low, it reflects tepid enthusiasm for the style, rather than the beer. Clear ruby with a prodigious, lacing head. Almost Ribena-purple in the twilight. The nose is all molten toffee and fermenting dark malts. Something about it screamed Halloween - must be molasses, conjuring memories of treacle-dipped scones dangling from the ceiling when I was a nipper. Slick body, low carbonation. Strong vanilla notes, caramel, clove, raisins and some woody/herbal hop notes for character. Sweet but saved by the hops. Can imagine drinking a lot of this through the long Michigan winter nights. (355ml bottle from Leura Cellars)
