Notes/Commercial Description:
The truth. You don’t want to hear the truth. The truth’s no longer out there bubba. Just chicken ass lies. Become a Dogma Disciple. Believe in the birds and the bees. Act crazy, be heavily armed at all times and scream in German. Dogma is an indulgent, decadent and encapsulating scotch ale brewed with 10 different types of malt all blended together with Scottish heather honey. Soak up the sweet nectar like a jackrabbit on heat. This beer is not cool. You may think it is, but that is just a beautiful lie fabricated by clowns and gypsies.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

500 ml (I think?) bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a very dark red color. The head is a nice looking two finger mocha shade with a good texture. Rock-solid retention and attractive lacing are also present.

S: There is a lot of chocolate, along side some cola, honey, and a very subtle herbal component. All the sweetness comes across enjoyably.

T: The flavors presented are far more caramel-forward in general than the nose suggested. Despite that, there's a strong suggestion of sweet cola and faint chocolate to start, before it gradually dries out near the finish. The honey qualities come across both dryly and sweetly.

M: At first, it's a very clean, dry brew, but after a while sweetness will accumulate on the front of the palate (the sides and back remain dry, however). Carbonation is low, which fits its somewhat syrupy nature - but the thinner texture doesn't, really.

O: For about 4 oz, this one truly kicks ass in terms of both drinkability and enjoyment factor. But as soon as the sweetness accumulates, it becomes a little less likable for my tastes. Killing an entire bottle would be difficult, but not unbearable; this is one to share with others. Between this and taking heroin, I'd pick drinking this 11 times out of 10.
