COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Road Dog was the first label Ralph Steadman designed which later inspired Hunter S. Thompson’s "Road Dog" essay. We then spent four years fighting for the right to display their now famous quote "Good Beer No Shit." To make a long story short, we won. Let us hoist a pint to free speech, NO CENSORSHIP, the genius of Ralph Steadman, and the Gonzo Spirit of Hunter S. Thompson!

Labeled a ’Scottish Porter’, whatever the heck that’s supposed to be. Regardless of the title, really enjoyed this one. Nice dark color, though I agree the head dissipated a bit quickly. Very rich flavor, with huge amounts of chocolate. Very quaffable, nice and creamy, a very enjoyable brew.

Great taste - perfect color. Nice head - but it dissappeared too fast.

What a great Ale-that-tastes-like-a-Porter! Verk dark with a hint of tree-sap color around the edges. Easy to drink and not syrupy or thick. Perfect hint of malt.

Nice, slightly rosted aroma and flavor. A little light for a Scottish Ale...actually more on the porter side. I am not a big fan of porters, but quite enjoyed this one.

Well it’s a pretty good beer-has some malt yet it is fairly dry.Not what I would guess to be a scotch ale or porter

Scottish porter? I would envision a smokey, malty brew. Lacks in expectations. That said a dry brown porter. Not bad in that category. Skip the censorship ploy.

Dark color. Flavor has hints of burntness and has a mild aftertaste. Not my favorite and not Scottish in any sense of the term.

minimal malt nose. deep burgundy color, minimal taste, slight alcohol taste. BOOOO

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2002
Grainy nose, frothy head, dark mahogany color. Flavor is dark and fairly heavy. A hollow smokiness seems to come through mostly. ’Good beer... no shit’ on the bottle. Mmmh? I like how they used the word shit. Not to say this beer is shit though, I just like how they used the word shit on the bottle; that was cool. But I don’t really like the beer too much. It’s as if it’s ’haulin’ ass with no place to go.’ Very good intentions, but somewhat misdirected. Malts are complex, but unbalanced and all over the place. Alcohol flavors come through in waves. Smoke flourishes like an untamed fire. That’s all. Oh, and I actually kinda like the labels... but I’m an abstract artist myself.
