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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Dark brown with two fingers of foamy tan head. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Mild toffee aroma with a hint of nuts.

Taste- Chocolate malt, toffee, and some nuttiness. Very light citrus hop finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation.

Overall- A good session beer and a solid example of this style.
