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!

"not nearly as good as Mad River’s Scotch Porter...it tries to do the same things, but the flavors don’t mesh quite as well. An ok beer, but there are too many good porters out there to go here again."

Nothing exceptional, just a typical stout. That being said, it’s not awful, just not something I’ll seek out again.

Lothore (555) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pour an extremely dark brown letting very little light pass through. S- Light grain, toasted malt. T- Lightly roasted flavor, hints of burnt toast. Not a whole lot going on. M- Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. D- There was nothing objectionable about this beer but absolutely nothing special.

Buongiorgio00 (779) - - FEB 10, 2014
Una discesa nella mediocrità per Flying Dog con questa porter senza tratti caratteristici: caffettosa, con note di mati tostati, una sfumatura di cioccolato e un leggero tocco amaro nel finale. Piacevole, certo, ma incapace di affermare la sua personalità.

2.6
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
tectactoe (2042) - Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle: deep brown pour, some faint clarity near the edges with a khaki colored head that recedes quickly. Aroma is somewhat mild, with notes of light chocolate malt, roast, caramel, & light prune. Taste is a touch watered down with stronger licorice flavors; anise, roast, caramel, notable malt finish with a touch of bitterness, bother from the roast & some moderate hopping. Far from the best in the style, but easy to choke down.

MarcoDL (2281) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2013
Decent porter, but not much more. Has the characteristics of a classic porter, but does not rise above mediocrity.
