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.

This beer canít decide what it is. Is it a stout? Or an ale? In any case, it tasted to me like it was trying to be a stout. While nicely balanced w/hops, it tasted a bit watery to me. Not a great ale or stout in my opinion.

I have had decent ones and some that showed that they donít hold up long in the stores. Bad filtering? Pasteurization? When it is good I enjoy it to a fair degree, otherwise Iím sure you might guess what I think.

Slight toffee, sugary sweet malt flavor, but thin and bland in the finish.

Smooth, but weak and thin flavor for a porter.

Medium dark color, with average head. Nice malty aroma. To me it taste more like a heavy carbinated porter. Little lacking on the finish.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - NOV 29, 2002
Translucent brown in coloor with a small, quickly dissapating head. AAroma was Sweet and malty, roasty, with a chocolate Back. Flavor was SWEET and malty(too much so even for a stout lover) Something about this beer is wrong, itís tacky and Fake, Like the Flavorings used in cooking, this beer is an immitation.

Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. Not much aroma, but I do detect a slight, malty sweetness. Medium bodied with hints of chocolate and toffee in the flavor. A very smooth, easy drinking brown ale with good malty flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 I've seen this in some stores and if i knew it was a brown ale I would have tried it long ago, but nothing on the bottle gives a hint of what the hell this beer is, pours a dark maroonish brown with a thin tan head...slight cocoa/nutty aroma...fizzy, unsweet cocoa bitterness, tad bit too fizzy, thicker than a northern english brown ale but much less hoppy than an american brown..a slight bitterly nutty finish
