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.

Pours caramel-brown not even a finger of lacing that dissapates in seconds. Right away, nut brown and rich.

A-Dark-brown in color(reminds me of rootbeer).

S-Picking up a good mix of the caramel/nut mixture. Predominantly nut, but toffee/caramel is in there.

T-Mostly roasted nuts, but there are undertones of the toffee-like sweetness.

M-Lacks carbonation from the start, but the nuttiness comes to its rescue quickly with a resounding roast finish.

O-I am a stout fan, but this gives me the curiosity to stray more often!
