FLYING DOG BREWERY ROAD DOG PORTER

The Road Dog Porter from the Flying Dog Brewery in Maryland, USA.

The label is so cartoon-ishly done that I wasn't expecting much. Porters are sophisticated animals by nature and that doesn't usually match with childish labels.

I have been proven wrong. This isn't the darkest looking porter of all time, but it gets the job done and smells like dark chocolate.

It has hints of vanilla in the taste, too, though it's the toasted malts and the chocolate aftertaste that bring you in.

It could probably be a little more dense in its mouthfeel, but it's not a bad thing on a winter's day.

 

6/10
