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 a very dark brown with a crimson hue when held to the light. It has a large creamy head of tan foam that falls slowly. The nose is mild. Some toasty malt with a nice sweetness on it and maybe some faint grass. Sweet milky chocolate creeps into the nose as it warms and there's a touch fo bread crust on the nose. Taste is gracefull and well done. It has a thin mouthfeel with a slight bite from carbonation. There's a fruity backnote and some hops balance it for a finish that is dry and has a faint touch of bitterness. The malt stays mild in this but enticing with some bread crust a bit of toffee and some light sweet chocolate.

Easy to drink and very pleasant.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured out a deep, clear brown with a nice ruby tint. The head is foamy and settles in at about one fingers worth, light tan in color and leaves some nice soapy lacing. The aroma is pretty average, with only slight, nondescript malt sweetness. The taste is much more robust, with nice nutty notes and additions of caramel. There's a bit of carbonation on the mouthfeel, but it has an overall smooth mouthfeel and finish. A solid brown ale.
