COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Road Dog was the first label Ralph Steadman designed which later inspired Hunter S. Thompsonís "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!

Not a great Porter but itís a good beer. Great marketing. Lacks strength in typical Porter characteristics including of color, aroma, and flavor. A little malts comes through but they are too weak in my opinion. High carbonation for a Porter and tastes a little watery compared to better Porters. Still, Iíll enjoy it every time I have it.

355ml. Bottle. Poors clear dark brown with nice creamy head. Aroma is dark fruits, hops, choco, caramel. Taste choco bitter, with a fruity sweet. Mouth-feel thin. Not the best porter Iíve tasted, lacks porter character.

Some roasted malts come through with a nice burnt, bitter finish. Body is a bit thin though.

Single bottle from a Publix mix. Pours a dark amber with minimal head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, cocoa. Taste of roasted malts and caramel, though not much of either, and a fairly hoppy finish. Pretty average.

mjakopa (219) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - SEP 25, 2012
Pours a very dark red with medium head and ample lacing. Aroma is slightly alcoholic but with hints of caramel and chocolate malts. Body is quite lacking in taste, not really a typical porter but more of a dark lager. On the other hand, it is very drinkable and can make for a great summer dark beer.

kerenmk (2432) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at Daganís place. Pours very dark, clear brown with a dark white ring. Oranges, alcohol, a little campari-like even and chocolate aroma. Tastes sweet, thin and a little weird. Sticky feeling, smooth, long finish and light body.

dandeman (528) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2012
Aroma: A little bit of caramel and molasses with very slight notes of cereal. Aromas are not sticking out a lot. Appearance: Dark brown or is it between brown and black? Kind of translucent and clear for a porter. Creamy average head, with good lacing. Taste: Smoke is sticking out a lot. And yet itís not a smoke porter. Sub notes of coffee, black chocolate and vanilla. But smoke is sticking out too much. Body is very light and thin, texture is very watery, which is not common for a porter. Not the typical porter youíd expect. Too thin and too smoky.

Bottle sample. Brown with red hues, small off white head. Dark caramel malt aroma, with cocoa, dates and herbal hops. Roasted coffee flavor, dark chocolate and medium bitterness. Alcohol was too dominant, medium body, OK beer.

ellolovey (462) - Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts. Taste is of watered down coffee, roasted malts, and hints of chocolate. Thin and watered down. No depth to it. Very blah Porter. Sticky on the lips and slightly bitter on the finish.

Decent brew. Pours deep mahogany with no head. Slightly roasted aroma. Thin in mouth, taste is roasted caramel with a slight tinge of chocolate. Dry finish.
