COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Temptation (255) - - 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.

Another treat by BrewDog. Dark copper appearance, near black, with beige head. Aroma is caramel with a hint of spicy. Sweetness and bitterness perfectly balanced in the palate. Caramel, dark fruits, honey. Creamy and smooth. Lovely

leghorn99 (115) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 14, 2015
Ha un bel colore rame con riflessi ambra, quasi limpido; schiuma bianca, fine, e poco persistente. Il naso è molto ricco, combinazione di elementi dolci (caramello, sentori di miele) e speziati (luppolo, agrumi, soprattutto pompelmo, papavero ed altri elementi poco distinguibili). Il palato è quello che è costretto a fare un maggiore sforzo "interpretativo", perchè è sul palato che la birra fa effetto, mettendolo alla prova: un mix dolce – amaro, complesso e un po’ complicato, ma ricco di sfumature, con un amaro pervasivo e prosciugante, con una sensazione generale di bell’equilibrio, alla quale contribuisce senz’altro la buona compenetrazione fra il miele e la tessitura maltata della birra. Solo alla fine della beva la lingua, nei suoi lati, avverte la forte caratterizzazione luppolata. Finisce con il calore che ti scende lungo l’ugola e il palato totalmente prosciugato da un retrogusto amaro che dura a lungo.

Dogma w butelce jeszcze ze starą etykietą ale smakuje rewelacyjnie. Aromat lekko palony z wyraźną słodyczą i aromatem śliwek Piana drobna beżowa tylko bardzo szybko znika. Barwa tutaj to arcydzieło, klarowne i ciemne a pod światło barwa ciemno czerwona. Polecam każdemu bo Dogma to przyjemna odskocznia od nowej fali.

Bottle. The pour was a dark red color. The aroma was a pleasant mix. The taste was full and a nice mix of spice and that of a scotch ale. Better and different than I was expecting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lele (248) - Padova, ITALY - JUL 9, 2015
ASPETTO: rosso rubino, scuro ma non impenetrabile. Schiuma affondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: abbastanza intenso e complesso. Si avverte soprattutto del biscottato, del torrefatto e un lieve marzapane, nonché un lievissimo erbaceo. GUSTO: Si avvertono chiaramente vari sapori, soprattutto il biscottato, del caffè, della liquirizia, una punta di caramello e marzapane. Si avverte anche del buon sapore luppolato, soprattutto verso il finale, che rende la birra equilibrata. Corpo medio, carbonizzazione direi giusta. CONCLUSIONE: una bella interpretazione di Scotch ale, che si fa ricordare.
