The truth. You don’t want to hear the truth. The truth’s no longer out there bubba. Just chicken ass lies. Become a Dogma Disciple. Believe in the birds and the bees. Act crazy, be heavily armed at all times and scream in German.

Dogma is an indulgent, decadent and encapsulating scotch ale brewed with 10 different types of malt all blended together with Scottish heather honey. Soak up the sweet nectar like a jackrabbit on heat.

This beer is not cool. You may think it is, but that is just a beautiful lie fabricated by clowns and gypsies.

Vells (652) - LATVIA - JUN 9, 2014
Too weak for me to be a good scotch ale. Quite malty, lightly roasted, some caramel, kinda bread, molasses. Moderate sweet, bit dry finish. More like old ale to me – too thin for scotch :P

Saeglopur (306) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Dark brown to black body, with a medium, creamy, beige, not very stable head. Aroma is a bit like a sweet, dark, alcoholic cake, with chocolate, honey, caramel, dried fruits, some coffee. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, smoke, honey, caramel, dark fruits. Mouthfeel is full, oily, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes roasty, bitter and sweet, with some alcohol warmth. Really interesting, intensive ale, that is pretty filling, maybe a bit too filling for my liking. Although a sweet beer, still in a good balance. Overall enjoyable.

MarkoNm (500) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 5, 2014
Pours a very dark brown color, topped with small tan colored head. The aroma is pleasntly malty, caramel, some spices and little fruits. The taste is sweet at first, a little flat on the carbo, roasted feel and moderate bitterness. Some caramel and alcohol can be also felt. Another OK product by BrewDog, but.... they can do better.

Tap at BrewDog Edinburgh. Pours dark brown with a little head. Aroma features dark, ripe fruitiness, berries, syrup and some caramel; a bit barleywine-like. Taste is very sweet. Ripe, sherryish fruitiness and caramel maltiness are most prominent. Medium to full bodied palate, flat to average carbonation Overall very sweet, rich scotch ale that resembles barley wines.
