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.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 30, 2003
Nice and dark color with a good head. Pungent and sweet aroma. Tasted malty and unassuming. Not complex, almost a little flat (in the flavor, not carbonation). Burnt finish with hoppy leave.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2003
Pours with a dark brown/black body topped by a medium thick tan head with a good amount of lace. Weak malty aroma with a slight smokiness. Not much of a nose to this beer. Slighty smokey/roasted malt flavor with a hint of coffee and hops and a touch of sweetness. medium to full bodied and smooth.

This beer is actually pretty good! I "built my own" 6 pack of Abita beers.. put 2 of these in it. It definately has a lot of alcohol in it (maybe that's why the word "turbo" is in the name... it turbo boosts your drunkeness). Overall, not something I would consider a real masterpeice of a beer, but definately worth trying.

This is one of the worst Brown Ales that I have ever had, way to much chocolate. It is more like a coffee.

a decent brown ale. It was a little on light side. Resembled a dark larger more then brown ale. I'm very particular about my ales :)

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Very dark brown color. Malty and chocolate nose. I thought it tasted a bit like a watered down porter. Had a distintive coffee finish. Overall - decent.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Deep ruby-garnett hue. Burnt chocolate nose. Small sticky tannish head. Very drinkable, smooth, coffee, light chocolate, toffee, caramel...Not much going on, but really drinkable. A great session brew that would compliment any nice cajun dish...hot damn

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 More of a porter than a brown ale. Overload of malt and hop all at the same time. Not a bad beer but you can do better. Good to get your "dog" started! RERATE: What kind of dumb rating was that? But I believe that was one of my first. Appearance is a dark brown with a large head. Flavor is malty with some chocolate and caramel present. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Overall a decent beer but a little thin bodied. This was my first beer that wasnt a BMC product. I will give it some sentimental credit
