3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

Good roasted malt aroma, with some faint hops. Poured with a full tan head that clung to the glass as it faded. The beer was clear and brown color. Roasted malt flavor that was mild with a dry finish. The body was quite thin and reminded me of a guiness stout. A decent dry stout that was well made.

aroma of faint hops, chocolate and caromel. the color is black rith ruby highlights and a tan head that fades to lace. flavors of chocolate, caromel and coffee. there is a slight hop flavor. the body is moderate and fairly well balanced. Turbodog is not a wonderful beer but can be a good swill beer. this is a good beer to pair up to gumbo. hell I will even add it to gumbo. I'll post a recipie.

A highly drinkable brown ale that isn't really complex in any way, but is quite refreshing. Nice roasted malt notes of chocolate and coffee with a decent hop bitterness to balance things out. Smell was disapointingly a bit neutral. Emeril uses this beer in some of his recipes, and it seems to be a beer that would lend itself well to food.

Best before 12/23/03 drank on 2/16/04. Cloudy ruby with a big off-white head. Dark grains and alcohol in the aroma. Smooth slightly watery mouthfeel. Ends a tad sweet and a bit rich.
