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!

Gabe511 (9) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2008
12oz btl. Pours a really dark brown with a nice tan head. Not too strong of nose but the usual sweet, dark malty smells arise. Mouthfeel is medium with light carbonation. Taste is of mild toasty amlt, some sweetness, with a little alcohol on the end. The finish is short and sweet. Not bad. Hoping it was better but its hard to give a dark beer a bad rating.

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

Lothore (549) - 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 (757) - - 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.

tectactoe (1716) - 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 (2144) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2013
Decent porter, but not much more. Has the characteristics of a classic porter, but does not rise above mediocrity.

Pour is dark brown with an averaged sized tan head. Aroma is faint - roasted malts, molasses, coffee. Flavor and body are thin and much like the aroma.
