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.

Une scotch ale, avec pas moins de 10 malts et du scottish heather honey infused. Comme dit le brasseur, it’s a lie fabricated by clowns and gypsies … Niveau abv de 7,4%. Mon exemplaire était à un mois en plus de sa date. Couleur noir intense, à l’opacité très forte. Mousse brun clair, fine, nappage à 1 mm. Arômes de café noir très fin, chocolat, ganache, chêne, pointe de massepain. 1ère bouche soyeuse au grand ensemble malt/café/levure/feu de camp. Arrière-bouche bien maltée, riche, avec un peu de bruyère. 2ème au très grand ensemble où le miel passe maintenant et délicatement. Arrière-bouche de caractère, complexe. 3ème au grand équilibre, grande harmonie des saveurs. Arrière-bouche riche, et absolument sans fausse note. Longueur qui développe le tout, avec des variations dans la partition. Jambes fines, denses, serrées. Levure douce, mais forte, très grande ligne. Alcool parfait, il souligne les saveurs et tient la longueur fermement. Finale de rêve, je vous dis .. CONCLUSION : une très grande scotch ale, qui pourrait, avec deux degrés abv de plus, entrer aisément dans les imperial stout... De toute beauté .. Un véritable dogme … (surtout après avoir vu ce soir le doc « ne m’abandonne pas » ...)

Robe brune, la mousse ne tient pas. Arômes caramel, réglisse, fumé. Goût café, fruits noirs, agrumes. Amertume bien équilibrée. Final réglisse. Longue en bouche. Une très bonne bière.

zacgillbanks (3758) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy, very dark brown coloured with a thin white head. It has a chocolate and spicy red fruity flavour with honey, orange and ginger notes followed by and a warming red fruity, peppery and chocolate finish.

Tmoney99 (12742) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good complex beer.

Es de carácter fuerte, muy aromática. El sabor inicial es acaramelado. Es un tanto densa. No es una cerveza ligera.

venom666 (691) - Elche, SPAIN - DEC 20, 2015
Dark brown colour with creamy beige head. Aroma has lots of chocolate, caramel, sugar, toffee and dark fruits. Great mouthfeel, full body. Taste follows the nose, with caramel, toffee, molasses and chocolate, with a bitter ending. Seems more a iStout than a Scotch Ale, but is really nice.

Bottle 0,33l. Deep reddish brown body, medium off-white head. Aroma of nuts, wood, nougat, nut´s peel. Taste is sweet at first, followed by woody bitterness, sourish aftertaste. Honey, nuts in honey, peanuts, nougat, alcohol. Alcohol presence is disturbing. Full body, moderately carbonated.
Good one, but no miracle (mostly because alcohol is unpleasant).
