I've had a few of these over the years, but was pleasantly surprised at what I found after a long break without a Turbodog. The appearance and flavor are both richer and bolder than I recalled.
The pour was a dark hazy, reddish-brown with an average size light brown head that produced a fine coat of lacing on the glass with each sip.
Aroma: dark roasted malt with a lightly spicy hop presence. A bit earthy with notes of chocolate and hints of dark fruits and toffee.
Taste: nicely malty with clear spicy hop note. Medium and dark malt flavor without any burnt notes. A hint of coffee in the finish. Excellent bitter/sweet balance in this lightly sweet brown.
Mouthfeel: medium in body; semi-creamy; excellent, medium carbonation.
Overall a somewhat bold and flavorful brew, that has a slightly spicier and more aggressive [Northwest American] hop profile than the typical UK version.

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+!
