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.

AleRider78 (573) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
On tap at Highlander Pub. Pours a good size frothy brownish head and dissipates to a thin head. Has a deep dark amber appearance. Pretty good lacing. Aromas are light roasted malt, toffee and caramel. Flavours are mostly malts, hints of coffee and chocolate. There’s a little bit of the rum hints in the mix. A fairly sweet finish on the palate. Good retention. Nice slick and slightly oily mouthfeel.

CapFlu (5100) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
Quick dissipating beige foamy head atop an opaque deep brown body. Nose of smokey malt. Very good body. Considering I’m not a huge Scottish fan but this is great stuff. Flavour has it all - mellow wooden cask, vanilla, nice toasty malt, brown sugar and smoke. Very nice. Congrats!
