Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 03-02-2001

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.

Reviewed from notes.

A - Dark brown, almost black with 2 fingers of thick foamy head. Good and persistent lacing.

S - Grainy malt, not much else going on.

T - Molasses, caramel malt, slight tartness, and an unpleasant metallic aftertaste. Improves slightly as it warms.

M - Light to medium body.

O - Not terrible, but the flavors don't quite mesh. And the metallic taste is a definite turnoff. Oddly, this beer paired very well with chocolate covered marshmallow easter candy.
