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

355ml bottle into tulip. Smells of rich chocolate, rum and raisins, a little pepper. Mahogany red/brown beer with light only penetrating the edges. Small creamy off-white head. Slightly zingy mouthfeel, full bodied and viscous. Taste is dark bitter chocolate and cocoa. Finish is dry, bitter and malty. Warming alcohol notes at the end. Good dessert beer, really nice.

sarauckelman (508) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Opaque and very dark with no head. Not much aroma, but the flavor is a complex profile of varied flavors -- hops, roast, malt, a bit of smoke, a bit of sweet. It is a bit syrupy. Full bodied. Rich and full.

fiery_1 (787) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2017
355ml bottle @ hotel room morning beer. Bottled 2016.12.29
Pours a rich brown colour with a decent creamy tan head. Nose is caramel malts. Flavour is a mix of caramel and light scotch(with no heat), the IBUs become quite apparent with a lasting bitterness. It is rich and very smooth, just the bitterness puts me off... but thats me.

oobawa (1082) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2017
King of American Scotch ales--all hail the Bastard. Pours a gloriously rich red with a massive layer of foam and ample lacing. Smells like a sticky bun eaten on a Scottish moor. Starts with a burst of dark caramel and toffee, yet never grows overly sweet, instead rolling around in the peat with a whisky-tinged smoky backbone. Grows surprisingly hoppy for the style, adding a needed balance to the heavy malts, sliding into a lovely bittersweet fade. God, what a great brew.

luttonm (5714) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Chucks 85th, Seattle. Thin small tan head, cloudy malty copper-amber. Malty caramel nose. Heavy clean scotch ale, bitter dark amber. Quite bitter profile, quite nice. Dark toffee caramel, slight metallic, deep bitter roast. Cool body, but some alcohol richness and bite on finish. Nice.
