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 “ain’t fer the wee lads”

CraftyHare (120) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2017
Very well crafted American scotch ale. 355ml bottle pours very dark cola brown with foamy tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, brown sugar, molasses and whiskey. Very balanced flavours of dark cocoa, bourbon, oak, roast grains, caramel malt with hoppy undertones. Long finish with very mild espresso bitterness. Silky texture, big body and dark sophisticated flavour profile make this a sensational beer.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2017 Arômes de cacao, merisier, noisettes. Semblable à une stout, mais sans la torréfaction. Robe noire avec reflets bourgogne. Faible mousse beige. En bouche, figues, alcool, torréfaction. Bien rond.

Poured from its stubby bottle, it appears a clear dark brown topped off with tan froth. The aromas are of boozy dried fruits and caramel, and the taste that follows is coffee, chocolates, roasted malt and smoke. Overall, taste is sweet with very little bitter and a medium bodied mouthfeel.

355ml bottle. Pours a clear dark ruby with a large, frothy, long lasting, tan head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, chocolate, dried fruit, licorice and brown sugar. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, chocolate, overripe fruit, licorice, molasses and a hint of peat in a dry, slightly boozy finish. Medium to full body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty, an excellent scotch ale.

12 oz. can poured into a pint glass. Canned on 5/8/17. Enjoyed 8/8/17. L. Super dark brown with a big frothy tan head which lasts and laces the glass. S. Dark brown sugar, molasses, nutty, slightly smoky, brown bread, clean wood. Smells dang good. T. Sweet dark bread like zucchini bread, molasses, rich roasted malt, slight smoke and wood, toffee, a bit of bitter chocolate, finishes with grassy bitterness. Nice. F. Leaning toward a full body, subdued carbonation, sticky resinous finish with just a little bit of drying, not boozy at all. O. I've passed over this so many times, but boy am I glad I finally grabbed some Dirty Bastards. I am pretty sure this will be in my fridge most days from now on, especially during the cooler months, especially especially at like 20 bucks incl. tax per 12 pack. Well done Founders!

Filling up a hole in my ratings. Pours a brown with a full, foamy, light tan head. The aroma is earthy, containing heavier amounts of caramel and bread, some raisin, licorice, peat, and a slight chocolate. The taste is dry and a little sweet. Its earthy and peaty, with a slight roasted compliment. Strong caramel, fig, and raisin flavors, lesser smoke, and a very slight whiskey will be found as well. Peaty aftertaste. Medium in body, rather thin in texture, and a little softer in carbonation. Quite a bit going on with this one. Interesting, tasty, and solid.
