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.

Seriously dark with a honeycomb coloured head. There is a note of honey initially, but it isnít light, fragrant manuka honey, it is honey in a rich sherry dosed treacle cake. In the mouth there is a good flush of carbonation and then big cake, treacle and molasses in the mouth. I wasnít expecting it to be so rich, but it is. It is rich, oily beer similar to Old Engine Oil from Harviestoun.

Steven_B (13) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very deep brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is of treacle, chocolate and toffee. Taste is sweet that moves into a bitter finish. The body of the beer is a lot thinner than expected but doesnít detract from itís enjoyment.

DeanF (1891) - Northwest Territories, CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
Aroma of sweet barley and mintiness, very unique and appealing in an odd way. Has nice head and a black-burgundy body. Flavour is sweet barley notes but toned down so not to be cloying. Medium finish. Itís a very drinkable brew.
