Brew Dog Dogma

ale brewed with honey, kola nut, poppy seed and guarana. Product of Scotland.

guar-who-a? Ooh, it has caffeine.

The label people think that they are clever: Dogma is an innovative, enigmatic ale brewed with guarana, poppy seeds and kola nut all blended together with Scottish heather honey. A conspiracy of transcontinental ingredients infused with some devastatingly BrewDog imaginative thinking. Have you ever watched the x-games? They always have these out-of-place thirty-something announcers talking about the gnarly front-side 1080's? I think those guys wrote this label. Devastating? Come on.

The flavours, intricacies and nuances of this beer are best enjoyed while musing over some obscure 17th Century philosophical meanderings, such as:
"If we disbelieve everything because we cannot certainly know all things we will do much, what as wisely as he who would not use his wings but sit still and perish because he had no wings to fly."John Locke. Needless to say, that is not what I am doing while I drink this beer. If you feel like doing that, leave this site and never come back. Education good. smug a-hole bad. Verbs, optional.

This beer is not cool. You may think it is, but that is just a beautiful lie fabricated by clowns and gypsies. These guys are tripping balls.

How does it taste? Pretty good. There is a slight cola flavor. It's nice and bitter.
