Brewed with ten different types of malt, and blended together with Scottish heather honey, it is a pantheon to the gods of intricacy and nuance; a beer that celebrates a confluence of ideas. History is written by the victors, and Dogma is Scotch Ale triumphant; evolved.
Complex, indulgent and encapsulating, Dogma gives more than a cursory nod to history, to make you ponder the very nature of beer itself.

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Changkat, Kuala, Lumpur. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head and some clingy lace. The aroma is rich red berry fruit, alcohol, some malt. The flavour is moderate sweet with a big fruity, light burning alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

33cl bottle. Dark brown pour with thin brown head, no lacing. Aromas of caramel, roast and coffee. Taste is sweet, bitter and full-bodied. Low carbonation, oily palate. Aftertaste is sweet and warm. Good beer, a bit too sweet for my taste.

Une belle robe noire encre, un corps onctueux, des arômes subtils de miel, douceur, épices et des saveurs agréables faites de douceur, de miel, de fleurs et d’épices. Plus pas mal avec mention spéciale pour le nez surpassant le reste.

lliams (204) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2016
Aroma’s really spil out the glass. Sweet, boozy, some hops. Palate is long and dry. Rich, robust. Drinks like a real sipper- thought it was up around 9%. Delicious

johndoughty (5006) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2016
Bottle. Black with a small head. Malty and slightly sweet. Quite powerful but at the same time quite complex. Sweetness dominates but doesn’t take over. A good example of this style.

Une scotch ale, avec pas moins de 10 malts et du scottish heather honey infused. Comme dit le brasseur, it’s a lie fabricated by clowns and gypsies … Niveau abv de 7,4%. Mon exemplaire était à un mois en plus de sa date. Couleur noir intense, à l’opacité très forte. Mousse brun clair, fine, nappage à 1 mm. Arômes de café noir très fin, chocolat, ganache, chêne, pointe de massepain. 1ère bouche soyeuse au grand ensemble malt/café/levure/feu de camp. Arrière-bouche bien maltée, riche, avec un peu de bruyère. 2ème au très grand ensemble où le miel passe maintenant et délicatement. Arrière-bouche de caractère, complexe. 3ème au grand équilibre, grande harmonie des saveurs. Arrière-bouche riche, et absolument sans fausse note. Longueur qui développe le tout, avec des variations dans la partition. Jambes fines, denses, serrées. Levure douce, mais forte, très grande ligne. Alcool parfait, il souligne les saveurs et tient la longueur fermement. Finale de rêve, je vous dis .. CONCLUSION : une très grande scotch ale, qui pourrait, avec deux degrés abv de plus, entrer aisément dans les imperial stout... De toute beauté .. Un véritable dogme … (surtout après avoir vu ce soir le doc « ne m’abandonne pas » ...)

Robe brune, la mousse ne tient pas. Arômes caramel, réglisse, fumé. Goût café, fruits noirs, agrumes. Amertume bien équilibrée. Final réglisse. Longue en bouche. Une très bonne bière.
