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.

One of my favorite beers to drink with choclate. Very pleasing aroma and the tast is darkly nutty. Slight toffee finish. The Abita water gives this a very nice flavor and is quite fun to drink.

Very nutty, somewhat floral aroma coming from a rich dark body and thick, short-lived head. Complex flavor profile that starts somewhat stale but finishes with a creamy roasted maltiness. It could stand to bit a bit more balanced, but itís still one of the more interesting brown ales I have tried.

Re-rate 10/28/02: The beer pours a deep clear garnet to brown color, the head is mountainous, the lace in thick glutinous sheets, both light chocolate brown in color. Nose is malt, nutty sweet, caramel, and fresh and clean. Front is malt sweet, the top skimpy, the finish is gently acidic, sparsely hopped, the aftertaste malt dry. A bit to much malt, and a tad to little hops for me to rank it very high. A drinkable beer none the less, and would do well in putting out the fire after eating some íOver The Top Cajun Foodí! Ranks #826 on my current 1000 beer master list.

This one has a grainy kind of flavor. Tastes like a darker mexican brew. Nothing special, but drinkable.

This is the first time Iíve had this beer: The thing that strikes me most is the nuttiness in the finish, but Iím not all that impressed. The flavor is almost non-existent.

A very dark brownish-red beer with a slight head (about 1/2 inch on pint glass). Had on tap at Callhanís 10/16/02. The odor is slightly fruity and taste is similar with a mild nutty malt flavor. An interesting beer with a bit more carbonation than usual beers. A very drinkable beer, but nothing special.

Very dark, no real head or lace. Canít really identify the odor, but its not pleasant. Chocolaty taste. More watery than Iíd expected. Nothing special.

A wonderful surprise. Bought a bottle on Bourboun street at a convenient store and they offered to open it for me as I left. What a town - New Orleans. Turbo Dog had a great roasted flavour, with a mild malty finish.

Dark brown color, medium head. Roasted malts, slightly hoppy. Nicely balanced. Lighter bodied, but full flavored. Nice malt flavor. Mouthfeel is a little thin but tolerable.Finish is clean. Aftertaste is somewhat malty and slightly bitter.

Dark brown with reddish edges and a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted nuts and caramel. Toffe taste in middle and at the finish. Great name.
