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.

Zarrach76 (124) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 7, 2017
Sublime couleur grenat/pourpre, trs opaque, translucide, avec une mousse vanescente beige. Nez directement sur les malts cacao et caf, la vanille, le miel, la cassonade, le caramel. Notes de ptes de fruits (fraise, banane...), de spculoos... Les armes sont peut tre mme plus proches de ceux dune Imperial Stout que dune pure Scotch Ale. La structure aromatique est simple mais vraiment efficace. La carbonatation est faible, la texture extrmement soyeuse, souple, huileuse, vraiment agrable, et les 7.4% dalcool sont parfaitement lquilibre. Le final est soyeux, long, trs marqu par les malts, mais il manque un tout petit quelque chose pour vritablement remplir lespace et nous enchanter. Cependant, les gorges suivantes rvlent dautres armes et saveurs, lamertume revient et repart de manire cyclique. Le final cacaot est savoureux. Je cherchais le terme exact : savoureux. On sent aussi des pointes de liqueur en particulier de mirabelle et de beurre sal... Une constante : les levures. Elles sont douces, bien rondes et contribuent la souplesse densemble. Globalement elle est plus proche dune Imperial Stout que dune Scotch Ale, trs largement mme. Mais la rigueur on sen fout. Cest un superbe produit dont il manquera la complexit aromatique au nez alors que la bouche et le palet atteignent des sommets de plnitude. Depuis le temps que je devais goter une bire de chez BrewDog, on peut dire que je commence bien ! Et je vais continuer hein... Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, toasted bread, honey, floral notes, some earthy notes, hint of smoke from the highlands, decent enough.

YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 4, 2016
Dark brown hue with a negligibly sized beige head. Enticing aroma with notes of roast, chocolate, caramel, toffee, dried cherries, and vanilla. Mid bodied with a creamy smooth texture. Delightful flavours consisting of potent caramel, chocolate, vanilla, and dried fruit, with a slightly roasty and hoppy sweet maple syrup finish. Delicious.

Been sitting in my fridge for an unknown amount of time. Mmmmm sweet concoction! Chocolate, vanilla, golden raisins, toasty malts, toffee, honey on the nose. I could smell this all day. Sticky on the lips, its got the slightest of bite that hold a note of sharpness. Minor heat thoughts minus any alcohol - very nice. Toasty stuff, toffee, slight cinnamon zip feel, vanilla, ok sweetness. Seems to sizzle up my tongue a bit. Perfectly tight carbonation. The taste is good but this one is a sniffer.
