COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abita Turbodog is a dark brown ale brewed with Willamette hops and a combination of British pale, crystal and chocolate malts. This combination gives Turbodog its rich body and color and a sweet chocolate-toffee like flavor.

Draught. Thin off white semi-dense head. Dark garnet in color, almost opaque. Notes of straw and a very light coffee/roasted taste. Strong after taste of coins/blood. This beer is not good on its own, but it may go well with food.

Very smooth and thick. Almost liike drinking whole milk. Head doesn't last long. Simple flavor of toffee with slight aftertaste. Much like a "nut brown" in many ways, but without the nuts. Poop brown is the best I can describe the color. My mom drove a Ford Pinto this same color. I like my beer with a little more red coloration. For being one of the cheapest beers at my local liquor store it's suprisingly good. That doesn't mean I'l buy it again though. Not bitter enough for my pallet (I like balance).

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2004 How is this a Brown Ale? Looks like a Schwarzbier with it's black color and thin body. There is nothing to this stuff. Foams in your mouth like a rabid dog. Total Draino.

Small light brown head, minimal retention. Great looking clear chestnut color. Slightly sour, malty nose. Medium/light body, sorta watery. Malty, chocolatey notes. No hop flavors to speak of. Finish is fairly dry.

This is bizarre. It's purplish, and smells and tastes like grape juice beer. Surprisingly alcoholic, and surprisingly good. But the novelty wore off after a pitcher or two.

On tap - Waterfront Manhatten. Excellent blackish colour with good head. Aroma of coffee. A bit thin in the mouth but the aftertaste is a good stouty coffee taste. Very drinkable.

My favorite Abita beer so far. Dark amber colored, with a good head. Smells of toffee, chocolate, and coffee. Finishes strong, malty, sweet, with slight soy sauce, almonds, and chocolate at the finish. Nice complexity.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2004 This beer was appealing to me to begin with cause it is Emeril's beer of choice. Very nice aroma. Dark look. Nice taste. Distinct nutty, sweet flavor. Would recommend this beer to anyone who likes sweet flavored beers!

Bottle, Emeril's Tchoup Chop, 3/04. Emeril always talks about this stuff, so I thought I'd try it whilst dining under his roof. Hard to tell color in the dimly lit restuarant, but it appears to be a mahoganey brown with ruby highlights. Huge tan head, ridiculous lacing. Roasted nuts and lighter malts in nose. Sweet, but I don't smell hops. Sweet tasting, especially in the front, reminds me of a stout at first, but it stays sweet and finishes kind of fruity, but bitter like green apple skin. Toffee lingers on the finish. BTW-sake drinkers in the Orlando area might want to check out the Tchoup Chop, they seem to have a nice selection.

Very Dark for an Ale, looked and smells like a porter with a strong molasses sent. Chocolate nutty was pleasant without being overpowering
