Brewdog’s Dogma

By: Katie Schroepfer

Brewdog, a Scottish craft beer company, has been a brewery that I’ve been wanting to try for some time now. I’ve heard about their great Punk IPA, and Tokyo, which is the UK’s strongest beer ever, and it was time for me to take a stab at one of their beers. Finally. I was going to go with their traditional Punk IPA, when I saw Dogma, and the description on the label sold me.

First Impression: The label fits all the other labels of Brewdog’s. It is dark with bold red writing (although if you go to their website it’s orange and the alcohol percentage is different…not sure what’s up with that). Their labels have always been pretty fun to me, and they aren’t overwhelming or too bland. Really just a perfect blend of information necessary to knowing whether you’ll enjoy it or not. The description is, “hops brewed with honey, kola nuts, poppy seed and guarana.”

Pour: Just the color and amount of head I was expecting for this ale, a light amber beer.

Taste: Pretty awesome, to say the least. It tasted very carbonated, but in a good way, and you could really taste the honey. It wasn’t a boring ale, and you could taste the nuts and poppy seed all in all. I was really happy that I chose to go with this beer as opposed to the (what I think to be) boring IPA. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going to try the Punk IPA at some point.

Grade: B+

ABV: 7.8% (although the website says 7.4%…am I missing something here?!)

IBU: 65
