Brew Dog – Dogma (8/10)
But I digress. Pictured here is the second (or maybe third) bottle of Dogma I’ve ever had. That should tell you something about this beer.
The aroma is delicious, reminiscent of a Belgian dark ale. You’ll find honey, dark fruit, a hint of spice, and malt. The color is almost pitch black. The head is finger-thick and a beige color.
This is a beer that improves in flavor both with age and temperature. A bottle that’s a few months old and in the 46-50 degree temperature range tends to have a sweet, complex flavor profile. Below that range it tends to be somewhat bitter and unpleasant.
I’m rating it an 8 out of 10, which is comparable to Beer Advocate’s 81/100 and a bit below RateBeer’s 95/100.
IBU: Unknown, but estimate 25-30
My rating: 8/10
