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.

Mild, but very pleasant aroma. Mostly you can feel coffee and roast. Dark, almost black in color with a hint of amber-brown. Some nice foam in the beginning but they dissolve very quickly. The taste is rather sweet, with a little bitterness in the finish as well as with some feel of alcohol. Low level of carbonation. Overall, this beer was excellent and I enjoyed it very much. One of the best I’ve ever tasted and in my TOP3 of Brewdog’s ales.

Black color with little light brown foam. The smell has a little coffee and chocolate. The taste is creamy with sweetish bread sirup. The aftertaste decays rather fast, but it stays a satisfying almost furry feeling.

SinH4 (554) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Dark brown color with small tan head. Malty and a bit spicy smell. Taste is bready, syrupy, very malty, a little bit sweet, dark, and spicy warming in the end. Quite nice.

Tap@brewdog, hki. Reddish brown, clear. Brown malty. Chocolate nutty, syrupy dark bready, dry spicy. Med full bodied, some woody intense browness, sweetness, well bittered. Tasty intense brown ale-scotch ale. Some spicyness there which can probably be attributed to the honey. Soft nice.

nihtila (1159) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
18.4.2014. Dark brown beer with reddish colour, short lasting head. Aroma of sweetness, biscuits and rum. Palate is medium-bodied and carbonated. Flavour has rum, dark fruits, honey, a hint of chocolate and liquorice.

Very dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is bready, with something sweet brightening it. Taste is quite sweet with a tiny bit of booze tang and a tiny bit of honey, some chocolate. Mouthfeel is a bit cloying and "wet". Even though this isn’t a style I usually seek out, this is quite good.

KW92 (193) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 5, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa brązowa, zamglone. Piana drobna, niska, opada do cienkiej warstewki.
AROMAT: Miód gryczany, kawa, karmel, ciemne owoce (jagoda, śliwka), słodowość.
SMAK: Paloność, karmel, ziemistość/torfowość. Wysycenie niskie. Goryczka niska.
OGÓLNIE: Jak dla mnie połącznie dwóch stylów, a konkretnie stout oraz black IPA. Jeśli chodzie o aromat przypomina Black IPA, a w smaku stout - oczywiście nie dosłownie, ale kojarzy się z tymi stylami.

nordic (104) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle 0,33 @ de Tolly (Tartu). Dark brown color, medium head. Rich aroma, complex body. Alcohol well disguised. Liked it a lot. Typical BD’s high quality beer.

Interesujace piwo choc zawiod?em si? troch? je?li chodzi o smak. Po opisie mówi?cym o mieszance 10 s?odów i szkockim miodzie spodziewa?em si? wyj?tkowego smaku a tymczasem dostajemy piwo które moim niewyszukanym kibkom smakowym kojarzy si? ze zwyk?ym ko?lakiem.

hohops (434) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Appearance is very, very dark brown, opaque, a one finger solid beige head which hangs around for a bit. Aroma- caramel, hint of chocolate cake, vanilla, bread, fruitcake, some booze. Taste- rich fruit cake, roasty, bitter dark chocolate, brown sugar, burnt treacle, toffee, vanilla undertones, fluffy, slightly clingy mouthfeel, sweet finish. Good stuff.
