Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a hearty deep brown color with a huge tan head. When held up to the light a reddish hue comes through the glass. The head fades slowly to give a medium level of lacing.
Smell – The smell is of chocolate, roasted coffee and some caramel. Mixed with this is a light spicy hop aroma with a somewhat peppery spice.
Taste – A semi-sweet milk chocolate flavor meet the tongue. Hints of caramel and some lighter coffee flavors are mix nicely with the chocolate malt flavor. As the taste advances the caramel fades with some very light hoppy flavors that come in. Overall it leaves a lightly spiced chocolate flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The carbonation level is on the lower side with the body slightly above normal. Both suit the chocolate and roast flavors nicely, really allowing them to soak into the tongue.
Overall- A rather tasty and enjoyable brown ale. It has a nice slightly sweeter flavor and a good mouthfeel.

This is the best beer I have ever had. I heard great things about Turbodog, and went to my local market, which has a "Build your own 6-pack" thing for 9.99. I got a Turbodog, Purple Haze, couple Shock Tops, and a Cherry Chocolate beer. I refridgerated my Turbodog and angle/straight poured it into a 20 oz. mug. The head is incredible! Super retention, very foamy, bit of lacing. The smell was great, hints of chocolate malt, no cloying, bit of sweetness. It pours a very dark brown. I drank the first gulp...heaven. No over the top alcohol taste, despite it having a higher ABV than most beers. I felt no biting carbonation and the sweetness was not overpowering. I recommend Turbodog to everyone. A+!
