Flying Dog Road Dog Porter

Here's another beer left over from my birthday party - Flying Dog's Road Dog Porter. At one time, this beer was described as Scottish Porter, but the "Scottish" seems to have been dropped from the name. I think it's the same beer. It's been a while since I've had this, and I'd forgotten what it tasted like. I was anticipating a deep rich chocolatey roasty porter, but this is not that beer. It was very subdued, with very little roasted malt flavor. The body was a bit thin for a Porter. It poured a deep ruby-brown color, and had a rapidly disappearing head. Overall, I was a bit underwhelmed. It wasn't "bad", just so-so.
