Flying Dog Road Dog Porter
This was Flying Dog's first beer to be illustrated by Ralph Steadman. Using four prized malts, it's a dark, rich and malty beer, with hints of chocolate and licorice.
They defended Road Dog's honor when the Colorado state liquor board tried to ban Flying Dog from selling it because "Good Beer, No Shit" was on the label. It took 5 years, but they won.

Pouring a clear, rich mahogany brown with amber highlights, there's a strong aroma of chocolate, with roasted malts and hints of coffee grounds.
The taste is more of the same, composed primarily of toasted malts, a bit of caramel and the faintest hints of dark fruit. A nice hop bitterness lingers in the finish with some faint molasses and brown sugar.
It's on the lighter side of medium body, with average carbonation. Really nice sessionability, especially for a Porter.
