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.

interesting brew. like a hybrid between a dry irish red ale, a malty english porter, and an american brown ale, its got a little something for everyone. pours a flat looking brown color with just the slightest amber glow to it. minimal off white head. smells malty and sweet, english malts, milk chocolate, bittering hops only. flavor is really strange because of all the malts in here. its sweet above all else, but it isnt heavy. its a very easy drinking beer, but could probably stand a bit more carbonation. went pretty well with a smoked brisket sandwich, but its not howd i would classically define an english brown ale at all.
