The truth. You donít want to hear the truth. The truthís 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.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 Bardzo dobre ciemno-brązowe piwo, rozgrzewające i pachnące kawą, palonym słodem i odrobiną miodu. Piana ciemno żůłta i trwała. Smak treściwy i wyrazisty. W zapachu intensywnie palony. Wytrawny finisz

Iíve been trying beers for years and have more recently realized that I like stouts and porters. I had the Dogma in London at the BrewDog pub and it was so delicious. It had full smooth flavors. Wish I had one right now...

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 Iíve ever tasted and in my TOP3 of Brewdogís ales.

I dont like very much dark beer, eventually I thought I dont like, but with this beer Iíve changed my mind. Not sweet at all, as other dark beers. Has an amazing aroma and great taste. A must have beer!

The commercial description is almost as good as the beer and the beer is very good! Poured at a perfect temperature with a modest light tan head, a little yeast and a very dark clear but almost opaque cherry color. Aroma is dark roast malt traditional Scotch ale. Flavor is a little muddled upfront but it really comes out in the finish as an excellent traditional Scotch ale; lots of dark malt and sugar flavors toffee little Cocoa, not quite smoke but in that direction. Body is great for this style soft warm round slightly boozy. Great drinkin' Scotch ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Brewdog. Pours deep brown, as Coke with a huge creamy tanned head. Aroma of inviting dark malts,liquorice and smoke. Taste is rich deep malty, caramel and toffee, liquorice extravaganza. Thick and sticky mouthfeel A tru gem this one.

from bottle. pours a clear dark red colour and a frothy brown head that quickly disappears. fantastic and complex aroma: sweet malts, honey, chocolate, caramel and praline. medium to full body, average carbonation and thick and sticky texture. sweet and rich honey and (roasted) malt flavours, it is like drinking a nectar from a heaven. wonderful sweet and pleasent aftertaste with hints of dark chocolate and mokka. amazing stuff!
