Rated on 8-30-2015 (Bottle best before 11-09-2015) The aroma is honey, herbs and spices. The flavor mimics the aroma. This beer’s mouthfeel is smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. This beer is very quaffable with a very good flavor. It is worth trying and is a beer I would drink again. thedm (6223) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and a fair lacing. The nice aroma was mild medicinal spicy dark malt herb and burnt malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of mild medicinal cloves spices herbal burnt malt and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again. AgentAle (1764) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
Aroma is roasty malts, caramel, clove, light earthiness. Taste is medium body malts with a light roastiness, creaminess and slight earthiness. Finishes relatively smoothly with pretty good malt/hop balance. Appearance is a dark black with a medium head that retains fairly well. wazzawazza (60) - Geraldton, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2015
Delicious. Had a blocked nose but still managed to pick up good scents of honey and chocolate. Very smooth going in, gentle head that dissipates quickly. Awesome beer. superspak (5691) - Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2014
22.4 ounce bottle into snifter, best before 7/16/2015. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, honey, cola, herbal tea, light pepper, light chocolate, plum, pear, apple, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, spices, and fruity yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, honey, cola, herbal tea, light pepper, light chocolate, plum, pear, apple, floral, grass, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light amount of herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, brown bread, nuttiness, honey, light fruits, herbal, floral, grass, light chocolate, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt, spices, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice spiced brown ale. All around very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/bready malt, spices, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle at home. Pours copper, taste is sweet and malty, light smoky toffee. slowrunner77 (12159) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
interesting spiced ale, kind of in a class of it’s own, though the clover honey is the main player in the aroma and flavor. i’m assuming the other aroma and flavor is larely kola nut, and you get a nice malt bse and a touch of hops as well. the originally very pleasing aroma and flavor grew a little tiresome as the beer reached room temp. very nice as a sampler, decent as a whole brew." belgis (521) - - SEP 13, 2014
Burnt aroma bit of boils vegetables.well taste is strange.not sure what it is but after more sips feels too much. cafgen (209) - California, USA - SEP 12, 2014
A dark brown color with a one finger head. A nice spicy, breadiness, nutty and sweet aroma. A sweet malty taste is dominant. Not my type of beers.

Dogma is a beer for thinkers, dreamers and sometime truth-seekers.
Brewed with 10 different types of malt and blended together with Scottish heather honey, the flavour, intricacies and nuances of this beer are best enjoyed while musing over obscure 17th century philosophical meanderings, such as ?If we disbelieve everything because we cannot certainly know all things we will do much, what as wisely as he who would not use his wings but sit still and perish because he had no wings to fly?.
