BEER INFO

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.

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.

The old Dogma was an unusual IPA-like beer. I loved it. This Dogma 2.0 isn't nearly as interesting. Fairly straightforward Scotch ale with a heavy maltiness to it, but not much else; finishes slightly sweet (honey?), but not in a way that detracts from the balance.

One of the few Brewdog beers I haven't fallen in love with.

And I think my main gripe is with its contrast.
It looks like a stout or porter, but feels like a light ale.

It's as dark as they come and very malty to the nose.

But lacks the body of what you'd expect from a beer if that character.

Bottle. Dark brown with small, white head. Poor lacing. Poor head retention. Aroma is dark malts, honey, caramel, candy. Taste i sem-sweet, honey, light bitterness, some floral notes, dark fuits, booze is quite noticable. Little oily texture, medium to full body, soft carbonation, alcohol warmth is strongly present. Finsih is long and sweet (boozy). Definetely not my style.
