Turbodog

B+ / 3.9
Turbodog

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.

This ale pairs well with most meats and is great served with hamburgers or sausages. It is a good match with smoked fish and can even stand up to wild game dishes. Turbodog is also great for marinating and braising meats and cooking such things as cabbage and greens. Colby, Gloucester, Cheddar and Blue cheeses go nicely with Turbodog. It’s perfect with spicy Louisiana jambalaya or Spanish paella. Some even like it paired with chocolate!

B+ / 3.9

Appearance – Dark brown with a hint of amber in the light. A small amount of light tan frothy head.

Smell – Toffee and dark fruits, with plenty of malt.

Taste – Toasted malt, toffee, and just a hint of chocolate, all balanced by very mild hops. This is followed by a tangy dark fruit flavor, that finishes with a bready yeast flavor.

Mouthfeel – Medium body, light smooth carbonation, a little twang from the fruit.

Drinkability – A pretty good example of a brown ale. Not something I’m falling all over, but quite good, especially for what it’s supposed to be.
