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.

• 10.29.14 – Game 7 of World Series (baseball playoffs – it’s 4 out of 7 and they don’t often go down to the wire like this – San Francisco (won) vs. Kansas City)
• Perfect pour yields 1.5 inches of dark tan head, held to the light it has a ruby / garnet color on the edges, held away from the light, very dark
• Can’t get much smell but what I can is malt influenced
• Full heavy taste, slight amount of roastiness, coffee, or maybe it’s just bitterness from the hops coming through. Not really tasting “heather” but not sure what it tastes like anyway. Great mouth feel.

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.

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.
