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.

The turbodog pours a a very dark brown, with a tan head that fades fast.
Malt/biscuit smell , nothing special.
Taste is the same a s the smell with a little bit of roasted malt .
The feel is okay. This seems to be a cross between a brown ale and a porter. It isn't bad bad I wouldn't look for it again.

I have been wanting to try this beer for some time now, I picked up a single at the Party Source.

Dark brown beer with ruby hue. Solid half inch of off white/tan head. It smelled sweet and malty. Promising....

The taste was even. Sweet roasted malt, light bitterness balanced out all the sweetness. Not bad. Very drinkable, smooth. Medium body.

Not bad, not great. Just okay. I would drink it again but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.
