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”

Bottle pours a reddish brown with a medium tan head. Aromas of peach, caramel, apple, and molasses. Taste is sweet caramel malt with a crisp bitter finish. Sugar and oil on the palate. A tasty, rich scotch ale.

Pours unclear dark brown with a red glow. Small white head. Smell is caramelly malts, intense, but with a certain subtile intensity. Taste is full, mild butteryness ( allowed in the style ) bit caramely, dark bread delivered from the malts. Mild walnutty flavors in the back. Creamy mf. Not too much carbo.

StuffWine (167) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2017
Poured a solid dark brown with small brown head. Aroma sweet dark malts and dark rum with cola. Taste is rich, strong, sweet malts and dried fruit undertones. Followed by a bold bitter malty finish that turns slightly acrid/burnt on the end. Full bodied, well carbonated, great length to finish. Enjoyed thoroughly.

Just a even balanced scotch ale that isn't over hopped like so many others. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle poured. I actually think I picked this one up while traveling, before Founders made it to the PNW. Super excited to have it finally, then it showed up everywhere around here. Oh well, same great beer. Dusty, dark brown pour with a tan cream foam head. Sweet and spicy malt aroma. Toasty malt, a light charred wood note, balanced by the slightest hint of vanilla/cream. A pleasant, easy drinking scotch ale here. Bold almost smokey linger. Exceptional for the style.

Sweet aroma, with hints of caramel, tofee, raisins, black "cocada" (coconut candy); followed by a little herbal hop. Taste follows; alcohol perfectly balanced. Nice color and head. Complex, smooth, warmy. Excellent beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Stillwater tavern in St Pete, Fl. Dark brown pour. Minimal aroma. Can taste peat mixed mixed with dirt. Solid beer but not phenomenal. 97 rating seems high
