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.

Pours a dark brown color with an off white head. The aroma has a nice deep toasty malt note with peat smoke, dark fruits and alcohol. The flavor mimics the nose with more of the peat, some of the brown sugar, molasses, and char, and of course just a hint of alcohol. The beer drinks easy and smoothly. Overall, this is a solid option and very nice on tap.

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.
