2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a nice cola brown. First thing you notice is the big tan fluffy head. Looks like a stout but drinks like the ale it is. Flavor is a combo of chocolate and coffee. No real after taste to speak of. It could use a little something on the way down. A decent brew.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a deep dark amber with a great big fluffy brown head and ample lacing of the semi-sticky type.
Very vague aroma, but kind of skunky in a way with a touch of cocoa in there,.
Chocolate malt up front, medium-bodied smoothness but not a big tasting beer. Some more hops on the back end would have finished this off better, but not a terrible brew.

A fine brown ale, Turbodog is a bit lacking in complexity, but it's basic choclatey flavor and aroma is quite tasty, with a nice English hops underbite.

A different tasting beer from what I expected. Looks and smells like a stout, but has the taste of a Scottish are or something simular. Interesting beer.

On Draught. This is a very respectable brown. Subtle sweetness that is in no way overbearing and balances well with it's hops. It ends with a dry finish. Nice beer.
