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.

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.

DuffMan (7836) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle. Medium copper amber, average off white head. Burnt sugar malts, vague fruity undertones, low bitterness. Sweet but not cloying, and it doesn’t feel like a 7+% ABV.

Fisler (191) - GERMANY - JUN 23, 2015
Im Glas wie der Dallmayr von heute morgen, schwarz wie feinste Arabica Bohnen. Im Näschen dann schöne Röstmalzaromen, ein Fünkchen Kaffee. Auf der Zunge stoutich, süß, irgendwas sagt dunkle Kirsche dann herz- und baucherwärmend alkoholisch, aber rund, nicht krachig, eine nussige Umarmung, die lange nachhallt. Mmmh, hit me Baby one more time. Das Schätzchen ist komplex, ein Bier mit Tiefgang. Wie die Schotten halt, nicht hübsch aber mit Charackter und sofort bitten Sie Dich herein. Komm ins Wohnzimmer, da brennt ein Feuerchen im Kamin und Du willst nie mehr weg. Amazing Grace!

Cokemonkey11 (181) - - JUN 22, 2015
Brown bottle, 330ml, co-op. Scentless. Light toffee and coffee notes. Pours black cola with a ruby hue. Taste is dense coffee and toffee notes. Thick and syrup feeling. Grassy and earthy feelings on the mouth. Good.

McWorta (947) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 18, 2015
Dark brown with ruby red hues and a fine poring tan head. Aromas of toast, chocolate, instant coffee and heather paired with subtle dried leather and light tobacco notes. Short pronounced fine carbonation offering a light slick texture and a full body. Chocolatey milk coffee sweetness develops with a noticeable roast astringency. Lasting bit warming finish, harmonic beer!

Dry chocolate dark peat creamy runon sentence. Dont get much honey or punctuation. Light head on dark brown. Aroma is quiet chaos: peat herb root interesting echoes.flavour is intriguing but seems a work in progress needing some finessing.

MunBro (792) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Wow! Aroma of dark mollases and malts. Huge malty blast that coats your tongue immediately and lingers. The malts fade into a sweet honey flavour. Really nice balance and tons of flavour here.

patricks110 (2027) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Really enjoyable. Heavy wee scotch malt, toffee, molasses, light chocolate and woody notes. Nice malt base. The pour is nearly opaque, dark muddy brown with a thin light tan head. The aroma is malty with a bit of fruity notes, toffee, caramel, molasses, dessert like. A nice heavy malt flavour profile. Sweet but reserved somehow. Not bitter but a light robustness on the end. A good wee heavy style.
