Dark mahogany brown to black. Bubbly, light brown head that fades fast.
Dark raosted malts and a strong coffee aroma coupled with some chocolate and a touch of caramel and peat. Dome liquorice & a stout-like aroma that has some sugar in it and possibly some figs and other dark, dried fruits and possibly some plums.
Roasted malts prescense with some chocolate, burnt sugar and cocoa along with some milder coffee notes. There is a touch of grain and alcohol quickly followed by some dried fruit notes and a helping of some fig.
Medium to full in body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a creamy feel to the beer that is generally quite smooth. There is an overall sweetness from the fruit and a touch of alcohol too.
This one was a lot heavier and harder to swallow than it's original nmaesake, the 7.8% version of this beer. In fact the two share no similarities other than in name with both being a completely different style of beer to the other. To be honest I wasn't a fan of this version of the beer at all although it was drinkable.

Bottle at the Flying Saucer at the Lake Beerfeast 2012.
The beer pours a yellowish color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the peat malt, with some nice toffee and caramel notes thrown in. The flavor is once again fairly peaty, with some dark fruit and heather notes. There is also, as expected, a lot of toffee and caramel. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This is much better than the Original Dogma.

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.
