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.

johndoughty (5176) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2016
Bottle. Black with a small head. Malty and slightly sweet. Quite powerful but at the same time quite complex. Sweetness dominates but doesnt take over. A good example of this style.

Une scotch ale, avec pas moins de 10 malts et du scottish heather honey infused. Comme dit le brasseur, its a lie fabricated by clowns and gypsies Niveau abv de 7,4%. Mon exemplaire tait un mois en plus de sa date. Couleur noir intense, lopacit trs forte. Mousse brun clair, fine, nappage 1 mm. Armes de caf noir trs fin, chocolat, ganache, chne, pointe de massepain. 1re bouche soyeuse au grand ensemble malt/caf/levure/feu de camp. Arrire-bouche bien malte, riche, avec un peu de bruyre. 2me au trs grand ensemble o le miel passe maintenant et dlicatement. Arrire-bouche de caractre, complexe. 3me au grand quilibre, grande harmonie des saveurs. Arrire-bouche riche, et absolument sans fausse note. Longueur qui dveloppe le tout, avec des variations dans la partition. Jambes fines, denses, serres. Levure douce, mais forte, trs grande ligne. Alcool parfait, il souligne les saveurs et tient la longueur fermement. Finale de rve, je vous dis .. CONCLUSION: une trs grande scotch ale, qui pourrait, avec deux degrs abv de plus, entrer aisment dans les imperial stout... De toute beaut .. Un vritable dogme (surtout aprs avoir vu ce soir le doc ne mabandonne pas ...)

Tmoney99 (13896) - 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.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 Es de carcter fuerte, muy aromtica. El sabor inicial es acaramelado. Es un tanto densa. No es una cerveza ligera.

venom666 (950) - Elche, Alicante, 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.
