To quote Founders Brewing, “Brewed with seven varieties of imported malts. Complex in finish, with hints of smoke and peat, paired with a malty richness and a right hook of hop power to give it the bad attitude that a beer named Dirty Bastard has to live up to. Ain’t for the wee lads.” IBUs: 50

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/07/2013


Almost opaque, deep tawny brown with long lasting beige head leaving moderate lacing.


Earthy bready nose with mocha coffee, Demerara sugar, caramel, prunes and pickled walnuts.


Full-bodied, bready malt, stewed prunes/plump sultanas and strong piney hops with bourbon-like spirity notes and Demerara sugar richness.


Burnt toast, blackened fruitcake and burnt sugar/caramel.
