Founders Dirty Bastard

Good looking beer, nice chestnut color, with a decent head.
Definitely smelling that this beer will have a kick to it, the alcohol is there in the nose, along with rich malt.
First impression when it hits my tongue: Dirty, just like the name.  Then the flavors start to sort themselves out: good bit of fruitiness, surprisingly.  Good bit of malt plays in the mouth as well.  Here now the bitterness of the hops comes through to finish, with, yes, even a spot of chocolate back there.
Very interesting beer.  Looking forward to trying more Founders now that they are available in Virginia.
