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.

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.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2006 Body and aroma are weak,with the roaast being the only distinguishing feature. Bitter in a dark chocolate way. Smooth.

garrison (808) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2004
A fine brown ale, Turbodog is a bit lacking in complexity, but it's basic choclatey flavor and aroma is quite tasty, with a nice English hops underbite.

guzzler67 (1647) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Filtered dark brown appearance. Chocolate malt aroma. Well carbonated, nicely hopped flavor. Medium-bodied mouthfeel. Lacking in depth and complexity.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2004
A different tasting beer from what I expected. Looks and smells like a stout, but has the taste of a Scottish are or something simular. Interesting beer.

SpringsLicker (3386) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2004
On Draught. This is a very respectable brown. Subtle sweetness that is in no way overbearing and balances well with it's hops. It ends with a dry finish. Nice beer.
