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!

yespr (44810) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2008
12 fl oz bottle. Pours black with a huge and creamy light tan head. Cornish and caramel malt aroma. Flavour is mildly roasted, vague berry fruity note and a mild caramel flavour. Something for a porter - not with flaws - it is just not interesting. Mild roasted finish with more toasted caramel flavours.

Ungstrup (37317) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2005
[Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A clear brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted with slight acidic hints. The flavor is sweet roasted, combined with notes of wood and nutmeg, on a slightly malty back ground. I find this closer to a Brown Ale, than a Porter.

joergen (27984) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2006
Bottle. Clear red coloured with an off white head. Aroma of malts and caramel. Flavour of malts, caramel and hops.

oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2008
Bottled. Very deep ambery brown colour, mediumsized brownish beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, burnt wet wood as well as some hops and mild notes of licorice. Flavour is quite much the same along with chocolate and caramel malts. A bit watery palate, but indeed strangely "soft" for being 6 % ABV.

3.1
anders37 (26251) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a small off-white head. Roasted malty coffee aroma with some hints of caramel. Sweet roasted malty chocolate and caramel flavor with some hints of licorice. Sweetish malty caramel finish with some hints of chocolate in the aftertaste.

3.9
Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a beautiful, clear reddish mahogany with a small, off-white head. Roasted, malty nose. Medium body with plenty of delicate, roasted malt - almost a bit vinous, port-like. A wee, burned edge. More a Scottish Ale than a Porter really. Lovely. 150306

Bottled. Very dark ruby, near black. Firm head. Vinous citrusy aroma. Medium sweet. Clean, but not hard. Roasty. salty finish with pleasant bitterness.

madmitch76 (24431) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2009
12th August 2008. Very light malty porter with a bit of a light fruity tang. Other than that it’s a pretty straight beer. Quite light compared to many other porters.
