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.

mikkos (306) - FINLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Draft at BD bar Camden. Smallish creamy beige head on a nearly black beer. Aroma is sweet and malty, roast and rye bread. Taste is similarly sweet but also smooth and complex. Bitter and smooth finish. Really pleasant and good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DroolYeast (647) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle @ BrewDog Manchester. Heavy dark malt aroma. Some kind of burnt fruit?! Pours dark brown with slightly off-white tiny head. Virtually none lasting. Quite sweet - lots of delicious malt and honey. Very rich body. Soapy texture. Light carbonation.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Batch 209; Best before: 26-03-14. 660ml bottle, orange label. Pour dark brown, looks like cola. Sticky dark tan foam. I don’t know how old this bottle is, smells oxidized. After letting get some air... Noticeable aromas of caramelized sugars, dark malts, hints of molasses. Nice roasted flavor, tastes of coffee, bitter cola, earthy, very herbal. Finishes very dry. Lingering flavors of bitter herbs & chocolate roast. (4050). #Maythe4thBeWithYou

jackafholmes (882) - - MAY 4, 2014
From Sheffield Uni Beer fest. Opaque dark brown with little head. You get some heather in the aroma but it’s mostly dark fruits and a rich sourness. Tastes similare but with added treacle and coffee, followed with nice bitterness. Medium body.

GothGargoyle (1951) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
On tap at BrewDog Camden. Ruby brown with a beige head. Aroma is brown sugar, dates, caramel, malts. Full bodied, slightly sticky mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a welcome touch of bitterness at the back. Taste is molasses, caramel, toffee, smoke, hint of earthy hops. Great scotch ale.

chimpgibbon (451) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
Hopinator version (liquorice root, cacao nibs, cascade hops) at BD Camden. Big choco and funky hops on the nose. Massive dark but creamy chocolate and liquorice taste, with a great malt and hop backbone. Good bitterness from the cacao and hops. Rich and moreish.

I’ve been trying beers for years and have more recently realized that I like stouts and porters. I had the Dogma in London at the BrewDog pub and it was so delicious. It had full smooth flavors. Wish I had one right now...

Fluxing (561) - POLAND - APR 18, 2014
Recenzja z 22.07.2013. Kolor prawie czarny, przejrzyste pod światło. Piana wysoka, ale dość szybko opada. W zapachu dominuje karmel, trochę chmielu. W smaku kawa zbożowa, paloność, spora kwaśność, spora karmelowo-czekoladowa słodycz. Bardzo treściwe, rozgrzewające, trochę zaklejające. Goryczka niska. Odczucie w ustach przyjemne, kawowo-chmielowe.
