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

Bottled. U.S. Beer 21 of 31 for <a href=http://www.americanbeermonth.com>American Beer Month! Rich malty and alcohol smell right off the top. Pour is a deep mahagony under a brownish persistent head with fine bubbles. Fine, sippable taste, more of the same malt richness that reminds me for no particular reason of peated whiskey. Taste is just a touch harsh, but that just adds to its charm. A deep draught of Scots satisfaction.<font color=red> Cmdr. Montgomery Scott, heres to ya!</font>

tricksta_p (4016) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle from Hopt. Aroma is rich malts, caramel, toffee, touch of butterscotch and chocolate. Flavour is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Body is medium to full. Very robust sweet malt-heavy brew with a firm body, well-balanced stuff. Quite satisfactory.

Bricks (1056) - Delaware, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Nice dark brown/red color. Smells of dark candy, earth, malt, caramel, molasses... not overly sweet, but sweetness is there. complex. Tastes of metallic notes, malt, grain, molasses... but quite neutral, a tad bitter.. a touch of alcohol. Its not bad, more like a strong brown ale than a scotch ale.

enticing deep mahogany pour from bottle. i expected more aromatics, but only got faint whiffs of sweet malty goodness. fully, creamy body with soft carbonation. tastes very similar to a barleywine. the finish is a tad on the sweet side. overall, a complex brew with a great malt base and a warming finish.

TedE (1143) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2017
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.

uckelman (725) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Pours clear, reddish-amber. Ring of head. Dried fruit and wine aromas. Sweet. Not particularly bitter. Full, almost sliky body. Lively finish, a bit reminiscent of grape soda at that point.

sarauckelman (478) - 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.
