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.

Poured into a sniffer aged about a year. Looks, smells and tastes like cola from the addition of kola nut. Never would have thought this to be a scotch ale more like an extra dark and malty brown ale. Nevertheless the scotch style malts added another level of complexity to the beer. Massive tastes of honey give this beer extra depth as well. A combination of malt, dark sugars and alcohol make this a heavy yet delicious beer. Hope to see it on the shelves again and would highly recommend it.

The commercial description is almost as good as the beer and the beer is very good! Poured at a perfect temperature with a modest light tan head, a little yeast and a very dark clear but almost opaque cherry color. Aroma is dark roast malt traditional Scotch ale. Flavor is a little muddled upfront but it really comes out in the finish as an excellent traditional Scotch ale; lots of dark malt and sugar flavors toffee little Cocoa, not quite smoke but in that direction. Body is great for this style soft warm round slightly boozy. Great drinkin' Scotch ale.
