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.

Temptation (227) - - FEB 27, 2013
Dark brown/mahogany colour, beige and shortlasting head, little traces of lace, medium to low carbonation. The aroma is sweet liquorice, plums, roasted malts, raisins and rhum. Very sweet, with very hidden hops, tastes like liquor, honey, burnt sugar and hints of coffee. Great overall, though slightly unbalanced. Very tasty, liked a lot.

If I were to make a blind test, I would say it’s bock. Dark brown color. Fine and intensive aroma of plums, malts and honey. Alcohol is well covered.

BB 12/09/15. Poured a deep mahogany colour with 5mm of light tan froth that retained well and laced well. Carbonation medium and fine. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits, a trace of caramel plus hints of alcohol. Taste very sweet caramel malt with roasted grain and molasses, with a very slight bitterness, plus hints of alcohol. Light body. Smooth and soft with very subtle bitterness on the finish. Good.
