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”

fleagle (24) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Bottles from the local market. Pours a deep, red black brown with a thin, evanescent head. Aroma is a complex mix of raisin, coffee, and toast, balanced by a nice bitterness. The mouth is medium, with a slight carbonation. Really nice.

It pours dark brown and it is fairly clear. It has a tan head with low head retention. A full malt aroma, complex and inviting. It has some caramel and moderate smoky elements. The are also low aromas of alcohol as well. There are flavors of caramel and nuts. There is a low roasted character to it with low smoke. There is moderate bitterness and a very low dried fruit (Plums) element. It has a moderately full body with some alcohol warmth. Overall, a complex malty beer that highlights malts with a bit of light smoke. A great drinking Wee Heavy.

This is one of Founders best and amongst all other Scotch Ales I feel it superior to most others. I have tried over fifteen scotch ales and this is the one I most frequently purchase when I want an excellent Scotch Ale that wont break the bank.

Utan motstånd uppstår heller ingen framåtrörelse. Utan brittisk ale hade heller inte resten av världens ölkultur varit på samma ställe som den är i dag. Dirty bastard är något att ta spjärn emot när ölkartor ska revideras och nya smakupplevelser ska kalibreras. Hela skapelsen är otroligt fint avrundad i alla hörn. Kraftig rostad malt bärs upp av alkoholstyrka utan att bli spritig och eftersmaken är långt ihållande smakfull och bränd.

vinivini (2991) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 9, 2017
Bottle. Misty brown with ruby highlights. Moderate ivory-coloured well-lacing head. Aroma: malt symphony. Caramel, toffee, toast. Lots of nicely sourish fruit jam, dried fruit, some oak. Medium body. Moderately dry taste. Rich malts, again. Nuts, oak, fruits. Light bitterness. So good

hauxe (935) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2017
From the bottle. Dark brown with a tan, creamy head. Aroma is earthy with chocolate and Backhaus. Taste is sweet up front, full of chocolate, licorice, smoke and caramel. Finishes warm with a whisp of bitterness. Body is full, rich, creamy. Overall a complex, we’ll balanced brew that betrays absolutely no sign of it’s ABV. I‘m at a loss for words. Excellent!

HomeWaters (27) - Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Founders has so many varieties, each excellent for its style. My rating probably says more about my lack of enthusiasm for Scotch Ale, and less about Founders quality. Rate Beer descriptor notes. Aroma: roasty, resin, woody, barnyard. Appearance: amber, red, sparkling, tan foam. Taste: medium bitterness, salty. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, bitter finish.
