Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.40%

Availability: Year-round

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.

This is a pretty fantastic beer. It's not a 'wee heavy' as a beer of that style would clock in at trad Scottish standards around 4.5 to 5.0 ABV with some serious malt action - but this goes further. To me this is theScottish equivalent of American 'imperial IPAs' - which have nought to do with trad IPAs but emphasize the local ingrdients to the max - in the former case local hops - in Dogma's case Malt. Drink this approaching room temperature to get the full effect of what is good in Scottish Ale. Remember your first Belhaven - when you were a wee lad? It was pretty special. This takes that style to a new level of awesomeness.

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.

Darker than Santa paws...
Stronger than Santa paws...
Sweeter than Santa paws...
As unfamiliar to Scotch as Santa paws is.
But the beer is absolutely terrific.
