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!

Tastes great right out of the bottle, warm or cool. I prefer it cold, but its good any which way you take it. Its great going down, tastes delicious, and itís got a lot going for it.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - MAY 17, 2009
I canít believe this beer was rated so low. I thought it was the shit. Poured a dark, amber brown with an off white bubbly head. It definitely wasnít as dark as I had expected it to be. Nice malty coffee aroma and taste. This was a little different than most porters Iíve had, it was very smooth and refreshing. This would be great on a hot day.

thetmaxx (752) - West Sacramento, California, USA - APR 13, 2011
Poured into my Flying Dog glass. Colour is clear but dark Brown with red hue. Good head, and lacing down the glass. Aroma is roastEd and and slight alcoholy, making a chocolate type overall aroma. Flavour is bitter up front. Flavour is also following the aroma of roasted and chocolate flavour. Finished slightly dry. Mouthfeel is full bodied, and almost syrupy. Overall, wow what a fantastic well balanced Porter, this is top notch!

joet (2224) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 16, 2001
Perfect start of floral hops and malt and yes, itís 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.

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 íroastedí aroma and taste make this beer a good one.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2002
Malty in that inimitable Scottish roasted caramel way, not much hops. One of my favorite beers, with extra appearance points for Ralph Steadman.
