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

!2 oz bottle

Coupled with the main course was this release. After a few starters it was hard to get through this one. Despite taking it easy a beer this heavy can sink in the stomach. I would love to try it again on its own and on a fairly empty stomach to fully appreciate it. This is a solid beer instead of just one with a earcatching name.

Aroma / Appearance - The deep ruby red body swirled around the glass leaving a slight layer of film along the sides. Black cherries, peat, wet earth and dark malts formed a thick grouping that almost choked the senses. While not the richest beer I could have spent plenty of time admiring it.

Flavor / Palate - A slight bitterness washes along with warmth and chocolately tones. Peat and earth come next. The dry finish leaves one refreshed and full. A little heavy for a warm day this might be nice on a cool fall evening.

Mild hop and malt aroma. Clean dark brown with a slight red tint. Very little tan head. A very good Scothch ale with just a tad more hop than I prefer.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a thin mocha-colored head. Aroma is sweet and malty, with scents of dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar, roasted malt, and a bit of wood and smoke. Taste is medium-bodied, with initial flavors of caramel and roasted malt giving way to a long, sweet finish of molasses, syrupy hops, and warming alcohol. A solid scotch ale -- strong in flavor, but not overwhelming.

BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Bottle acquired through Sparky27...ERIC, you da man!!! Butterscotch candy color with a nice 1/2 inch pale yellow head. Smell is quite sweet and sugary. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and even a touch of hops. Flavor is roasted malt and all of the flavors that accompany it...the mild citrus bite is evident in the finish. Syrupy and good...great on pancakes and waffles!!!

Cloudy reddish amber with little to no head. The nose is all malty, smoky and sweet with just a hint of hops. A lot of flavor going on. Sweet toffee, smoke, nuts, bitter chocolate and caramel. Nice hop bitterness on the finish. Covers the entire mouth and the finish stays with you. Nice beer.
