Appearance

The BrewDog Dogma pours thick and syrupy. There’s no doubt by the pour that this is a wee heavy style. The color is a dark amber, approaching porter black, with a thin white head.

Aroma

There is a copious amount of booziness on the aroma. I’m detecting vanilla, maple syrup, chocolate and banana.

Flavor

The chocolate banana off the nose comes through here on each sip, along with sweet malts. The boozy character of the beer is far less than what the nose would have led me to believe.

Balance

The chocolate, banana and malts are all extremely well balanced. The booziness that can often overwhelm on a wee heavy is also extremely well balanced.

Finish

Each sip finishes creamy, malty, and there is a delayed vanilla that comes through right as the flavors start to dissipate.

Overall

The BrewDog Dogma is a fantastically balanced and satisfying wee heavy beer. The flavor masks the ABV, and you could find yourself downing several of these with ease.
