Notes/Commercial Description:
Turbodog is a dark brown ale brewed with Willamette hops and a combination of pale, crystal and chocolate malts. This combination gives Turbodog its rich body and color and a sweet chocolate toffee-like flavor. Turbodog began as a specialty ale but has gained a huge loyal following and has become one of our flagship brews.

3.18/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance:

Deep, dark brown with an illuminated rusty hue when held up to the light. One finger cream colored head rapidly receded

Smell:

A malty nose of spice is accompanied by a nutty caramel essence.

Taste:

A healthy dose of nutty malt is evident. A bit of spice is detected as well as a considerable caramel backbone. A hint of dark fruit (plum) is also in the mix. A mild spicy bitterness does complement the sweetness

Mouthfeel:

A fairly light body that is surprisingly thin on the palate. A lower than average carbonation level also adds to the thin feeling

Overall:

I was a little disappointed with this beer. Nothing horrible about it, however, I was expecting it to be more dynamic. All the pieces seemed to be there, but nothing stood out. Color was amazing and the flavors that did come through fit the style. It just seems like it could have been more pronounced.
