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!

Oakes (13538) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2001
Mahogany colour; aroma of smoke, cascades, hint of iron; thin body - a little acidic even; metallic, mellowed malts (a little toasted caramel, whole grain bread), cascades...what precisely is the brewer trying to get at here?

delacerveza (166) - Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2001
really liked the smokey sweetness --GO malt, GO malt!-- that said, still a bit more bitter than what i normally go for; but quite an interesting flavor.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 12, 2001
Chocolate and light peat smokiness. Lighter body than expected but a nice blend of porter and scotch ales flavors.

mikenodak (150) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 17, 2001
bittersweet, chocolate, tastes like a combination of porter and scottish ale - not a great beer, but enjoyable, with some complexity

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2001
This was quite interesting. Not quite a scotch ale, but not a porter. Smoky flavor with some maltiness and low, but detectable, hoppiness. Great ruby red color and malty aroma dominating. Not a great brew, but worth a try.

The Friar99 (222) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2001
Wow! This beer is impressive. Beautiful ruby color, changing to brown towards the edge of the glass, good head, and ’roasted’ aroma and taste make this beer a good one.

THE BEER BARON (275) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2001
What a great Scottish Ale. Very malty with nice aroma.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2001
Not quite as sweet as some Scotch ales like Newcastle, but very good. A strong malty flavor and the licorice and chocolate is noticeable but not overwhelming. It certainly isn’t as strong as some, could be my only objection.

LordHedgehog (144) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - AUG 28, 2001
More of a porter. The chocolate and licorice can taste deceptively like coffee. Imagine a Guineess, watered down, sweeter, and creamier. Good, but not my favorite.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
joet (2386) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 16, 2001
Perfect start of floral hops and malt and yes, it’s got some of that spicy/peaty/malty Scotch flavor but this is hardly representative of the style. It is on the other hand a mighty fine brew.
