Turbodog is the inspiration for this robust dark ale. It is brewed with generous amounts of pale, caramel, and chocolate malts and Willamette hops. Whole natural vanilla beans are added during the aging process.This combination provides a rich body and color with chocolate, vanilla and toffee-like flavor.

25 years ago Abita Brewing was founded on a pristine artesian aquifer north of New Orleans. For a quarter of a century, Abita has proudly brewed full-flavored ales and lagers. We thank our loyal customers for their support and pledge to continue the tradition of brewing excellence.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours very dark brown/black with a 3 finger foamy tan head. Aroma of dark not quite burnt malt with som chocolate and vanilla. Near med body. The vanilla and chocolate are pretty much dominant. Some roast malt follows, and there must be some hop in here, but other than some bitterness it’s hard to pin down. This is a very unusual beer. Like BA without the bourbon. Like stout without body. Damn drinkable tho.
