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

Very much like Newcastle brown ale.

Pours dark brown in color. with a very thin less than a finger thick head. Head is deep tan in color and soon dissipates. Leaves excellent lacing on the glass

Smells of caramel, faint toffee and roasted malts. No hint of hops. All sweet malty smell.

Taste is bland malt. Nothing much to discern. Seems complex. Only roasted caramel malts are prominent to some extent. Some off coffee flavors towards the end. Nice balance. it does not feel sweet. i would assume Willamette hops did a good job.

Mouth feel is medium bodied. little chewy. Medium carbonation which does not hurt.

Over all a fitting beer for the style it represents. But nothing rave about it.
