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.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 Looks good in the glass. deep brown color, lasting tan head. Some light porter-ish aromas of chocolate, dark fruit, slight roast. Flavors are slight, too. Bitter, spicy finish.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2003
Pours deep scarlet brown with a fine, pale tan head. Roasty malty aromas, toasted raisin bread, gourmet coffee shop, dark chocolate, rum and cola maybe? Subtle but wonderful floral hop aroma. Dark caramelly, nutty malt flavors, bittersweet, suggestions of apple/pear fruitiness and copper. Lightish but creamy mouthfeel. Lingering finish with coffee, hops, chocolate bar with roasted nuts, spicy black licorice. Is this a brown ale or a porter? Served this years ago at a beer tasting with a dish of spicy andouille sausage, red beans and rice- Fantastic!

Nice overall appearance, dark brown color with a creamy white head. Tastes of coffee and chocolate. A good winter beer - I'll have another!

Dark brown in color with a large beige frothy head. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel and nut. Flavor is light hop with light coffee, fairly sweet and quite drinkable

Similar to Newcastle, but with quite a bit more character. The sweet toffee and burnt chocolate tones compliment each other nicely. Hops are just there doing their job as they (hops) in a brown ale should be. Very drinkable. I will recommend this beer to the brainwashed masses of the macros to lure them into a beer with complexity and character. BTW- I'm glad the beer didn't have the huge rocky head as in the picture on this page that would have taken away from the quality of the beer.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Dark brown in color, slightly cloudy with a thin head. Nice lacing. Malty aroma. Good flavor, but not quite as robust as I had hoped. Similar to a dark brown ale, but thinner in taste, almost watery. Not bad, but not great.

Doesn't strike me as a brown ale, much more like a porter: dark brown, coffee and chocolate flavor, and malty...pretty nice.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Kind of a cross between a pale ale and a brown. It's a bit more hoppy than the average brown. Pretty good. But if I'm judging it as a brown it does not match up to the greats.
