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.

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.

Had this one on tap at Cooter Brown's in New Orleans. Dark color, lighter body, nice chocolate malt flavor. One of those hard to classify beers. Goes down good with raw oysters. Bon temps roulet!

Pours a nice cola brown. First thing you notice is the big tan fluffy head. Looks like a stout but drinks like the ale it is. Flavor is a combo of chocolate and coffee. No real after taste to speak of. It could use a little something on the way down. A decent brew.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Pours a deep dark amber with a great big fluffy brown head and ample lacing of the semi-sticky type. Very vague aroma, but kind of skunky in a way with a touch of cocoa in there,. Chocolate malt up front, medium-bodied smoothness but not a big tasting beer. Some more hops on the back end would have finished this off better, but not a terrible brew.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2006 Body and aroma are weak,with the roaast being the only distinguishing feature. Bitter in a dark chocolate way. Smooth.

Deep brown, almost black with tan head. Faint malt aroma. Smokey-toffee flavors. Medium body.
