Turbodog scores big points for squeezing deep, roasted chocolaty flavors into a beer with an exceptional quaffability.
What we are talking about here is a dark, clear, bordering-on-crimson brown ale with a lacy, Dockers-colored head. It’s a beautiful-looking beer, though the head could be a bit thicker. The aroma is a bit subdued, but cherries, dark wood, noble hops and milk chocolate poke through the clouds at one’s nose. The flavor hits with fleeting notes of brown bread (Outback Steakhouse-style) and cocoa, with a bit of a coffee aftertaste. There is a nice little snap to Turbo (a combo of hops, roasted grains and carbonation), and it starts sweet but finishes dry, beckoning one back to the glass for another sip.
