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.

The aroma is malty with a touch of swamp (really it does...) Mine poured quickly with little head (???). The color is dark reddish brown. The feel is thin and slightly astringent. This beer is quite dry to be so malty, and I like that. The hops are pretty subtle, and the flavor is unusual but a bit one sided. This beer has a long dry back of the tongue finish. Good beer for something different. This bridges the gap between brown ale and porter I think...

This was an interesting beer that pretty much defied description to me. At different points in my glass I would have guessed it was a Brown Ale, a Dunkel, or an Altbier. Points for being different. Pours a dark brown but clear, with a medium thick light beige head. Quick lacing. Aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied with flavors of coffee, nuts and malt, with a sweet malty aftertaste. A good session beer, and the best from Abita I have tried.

TurboDog seams to be a well balanced and a precision crafted brown ale. Darker than many brown ales, TerboDog sort of seems like a porter brown ale mix. Well roasted malted flavor, with little aftertaste, Little aroma, hints of chocolate, slightly dry finish. Overall, = B

Brown(rather dark) with a tall offwhite head. Nice crisp smell just like a brown ale should. Yeasty flavor, with a slight hint of hops.

Orange Brown with a decent tan head. Rich chocolaty and roasted malt offset nicely with hops. Creamy. Flavorful and still easy enough to quaff in hot and steamy LA

I think the picture of wheat on the bright yellow label led me to believe this was a light colored wheat beer. I was very surprised to see the brown ale that poured from the bottle. Once I got over my initial shock, I noticed it poured from the bottle with a nice thick tan head atop the dark brown beer. Tasted and smelled like chocolate with a slightly hoppy finish. Not bad, just not what I expected. They really should tell you on the bottle what type of beer is inside.

Bottle. Dark brown in color with a creamy light brown head. A light coffee hint to the toasted malts. Fairly robust for a typical brown ale.

Has a very dark brown color with some carbonation and a roasted/coffee smell. Taste is of roasted malts/coffee and finishes slightly bitter. Overall not a bad brown ale, but nothing spectacular.

Fairly average. Unbalanced flavors and strong chemical taste. Not all that good. The aroma was weak but smell roasty and malty.
