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.

corkyrory66 (1860) - BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2016
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 ...)

Zarrach76 (237) - 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.

Grzesiek79 (4246) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 25, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 Bardzo dobre ciemno-brązowe piwo, rozgrzewające i pachnące kawą, palonym słodem i odrobiną miodu. Piana ciemno żłta i trwała. Smak treściwy i wyrazisty. W zapachu intensywnie palony. Wytrawny finisz

Ive 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...

Niesamowite piwo. Fantastyczny aromat czekoladowo-alkoholowy. W smaku nuty torfowo-wiśniowe, do tego gorzka czekolada. Świetne odczucie w ustach, piwo jest gęste, zalepia kubki smakowe.

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 Ive ever tasted and in my TOP3 of Brewdogs ales.

DominikDraak (14) - Rijeka, CROATIA - APR 14, 2015
Bottle at home. I waited to try this brew for a few months and I wasnt disappointed. Pours a dark brown, nearly black with a finger of creamy brown head. Head retention and lacing is poor but it is typical for this kind of beer. Aroma is rich and complex. There is a lot of malt, coffe and chocolate aroma with hints of honey. Body is rich,creamy and oily almost like a coffe. Taste is amazing. It starts sweet with some honey, chocolate,dark fruits, then turns malty and bready and ends with slight bitterness. Everything is followed with a constant light coffe flavour which makes you want more and more. Overall: This is a great complex beer from BrewDog supposed to drink only when you are in mood for something like this.

Another treat by BrewDog. Dark copper appearance, near black, with beige head. Aroma is caramel with a hint of spicy. Sweetness and bitterness perfectly balanced in the palate. Caramel, dark fruits, honey. Creamy and smooth. Lovely
