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!

nice dark color, head is not as strong as several other porters (listed as a scottish porter on label). Not as strong in the alcohol as say a McEwans, some underlying complexity. A very drinkable brew but there are other choices I would prefer.

Surprisingly light beer for the style and dark color. Smoky smell, and slight chocolate taste. Also picked up a roasted taste as well. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2004 Dark brown color, nice fizzy off-white head that leaves a good lacing in my glass, roasty chocolate and caramel aromas. Roasted sweet chocolate flavors, some smokiness, decent roasted bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with a somewhat watery mouthfeel, the best of the three I have tried from this brewery so far.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2002
Decent looking porter on the pour. Faint smokey maltiness. Light in body for a Scottish influenced ale.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 26, 2002
Nice looking beer, cola-ish with a good head. Maltiness & fruitiness in the aroma. Malty & anise flavor. Moderate body, not as thin as others have complained. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Unusual flavor, but overall a decent beer.

dark brown amber color. very rich malty flavor more like a sottish ale going down with a hint of porter after taste. not to shabby of a beer

PhillyBeer2112 (2850) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2002
Malty and strong, fairly smooth, but with a tinge of prickly carbonation. Slight on the smoky flavors, but caramelly. Nice hints of chocolate and mild roastiness. Only modestly on the sweet side, and a bit thin, but acceptable. I’d like to see this beefed up just a little.

4.2
TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2002
Very deep amber/red color. No head retention. Very smooth, creamy and malty. Distinct chocolate flavor that intensifies as the beer warms. Another great beer from Flying Dog.

3.7
Darkover (1538) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2005 Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of malt and sour milk. Flavor of malt and a little chocolate.

aracauna (3606) - Georgia, USA - APR 30, 2002
This is really dark for a Scottish Ale, almost black with a creamy tan head. It actually looks more like a porter or weak stout. The head never quite went away managing to keep a very thin film-like head until the last sip. There’s a malty sweetness to the aroma and it carries over into the taste. I tasted some fruitiness like plums and apple peel. It finishes with a faint bit of roasted/burnt taste of a stout. Good beer, but I don’t think this can really be a Scottish.
