Dark ruby in color and boasting a blend of seven imported malts, Dirty Bastard is a complex concoction. Its finish is a symphony of smoke and peat, harmonized with malty richness, all accompanied by a right hook of hop power. This beer has the attitude its name suggests and is definitely not for the faint-hearted.

A Sip into Darkness

Appearance: Poured into a goblet, Dirty Bastard reveals itself in a deep dark amber brown hue, with only a subtle off-white ring around the edge.

Aroma: The scent is a captivating mix of concentrated grape juice fruitiness, pipe tobacco, lemony iced tea, and the comforting aroma of brown bread.

Taste: The palate is treated to toasty malt, burnt sugar, and a spicy hop dance. The finale? A lingering burnt toast flavor that resonates. The beer strikes a balance between fruity American hops and Euro-like spiciness, with just a hint of alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with perfect carbonation, Dirty Bastard hits the sweet spot in terms of texture and fizz.

A Trip Down Memory Lane, Now in a Can

Overall: Having first sampled this ale from a bottle years ago, the experience from a can proves to be even more delightful. Dirty Bastard is a bold, delicious, malty masterpiece that stands the test of time. It’s a rebellious brew that leaves a lasting impression, and enjoying it fresh from a can only amplifies its appeal. Cheers to Founders for crafting a beer that lives up to its audacious name.
