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!

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2005 Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of malt and sour milk. Flavor of malt and a little chocolate.

This is really dark for a Scottish Ale, almost black with a creamy tan head. It actually looks more like a porter or weak stout. The head never quite went away managing to keep a very thin film-like head until the last sip. There’s a malty sweetness to the aroma and it carries over into the taste. I tasted some fruitiness like plums and apple peel. It finishes with a faint bit of roasted/burnt taste of a stout. Good beer, but I don’t think this can really be a Scottish.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2002
Re-Rate 04/26/02: Deep garnet, frothy beige head, decent lace. Nose is malt, caramel, nutty sweet. Front is sweet, top light, the finish is acidiac dry, moderate carbonation and also has a decent hop bite, drinkable

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.

Dogbrick (11610) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2002
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.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - APR 9, 2002
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.

bonvivant (169) - Smithfield, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2002
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

JPDIPSO (5670) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2002
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.
