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.

The only way I knew about this beer is that Emerl Lagasse swears by it (as well as Brooklyn Brewery) on TV. It certainly was not bad. Although I would need to have another one in order to get a better understanding of it. Decent aroma and solid drinkability make this beer a refreshing choice with some spicy grub ro just for the heck of it! Bottoms up!
