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!

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.

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.

Hated it. Two thumbs down and a middle finger up the sphincter. Dark and scottish..........You don’t see many black Scotsmen so they shouldn’t mix them in beer either.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2003 I was afraid of the dark side, and then came this beer. I sipped it, and it wasn't bad. Then I took in a large gulp. It was the exact opposite of how I thought a dark beer should/would taste. It lacked the bitterness I had expected and satisfied me in every conceivable way. However, it doesn't smell that great.

Bland. Thin body. Has the cheap ’American’ tinge. Still, nice underlying raisiny maltiness like a bock.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2002
the label describes it as a Scottish Porter - i think it is really neither. It is malty, smoky, dark, tasty. it is also a bit but in the end. very nice.
