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

A bottle with a BB date of 1/15/13 poured into a pint glass. Appearance is just slightly hazy with a dark brown color and a substantial clingy pillowy light tan head.

Aromas of chocolatey malt with some nuttiness. Some sweet molasses as well. Taste is moderately toffee sweet, fairly dry in the finish with just the slightish bit of astringency. Medium/light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall this one is easy to drink with somewhat simple but nice flavor.
