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.

I see this is the highest rated non-seasonal Abita beer on ratebeer.com. I don’t think it’s as good as the Purple Haze, and is very average in its Brown Ale category. The taste is of roasted malt, with some hints of coffee. Just a little sour in the after-taste; in that way, reminds me of Mendocino Brewing’s Black Hawk Stout. But, a Brown should be sweeter, where Turbo Dog is a bit too dry.

Well retained head, slightly hopped, dark brown color. Excellent example of a Brown Ale. One thing I could not taste was the coffee flavors.

Had to order this one... Who wouldn’t sample a beer named Turbo Dog? This beer reminded me a lot of Negra Modelo in the respect that it pours like a much thicker, substancy beer but is actually very light for its color. I didn’t get the chocolate/toffee vibe from this one, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

Very dark. Slight chocolate aroma and taste.

Unbelievably suprised. Very good beer. A must for all to try. Wonderful pour with a thick brown head. AS little smell of burnt caramel but fantastic taste. Smooth not sweet. Perfect with a nice porterhouse steak with a side of crab meat.

The best I’ve tried from Abita. Could use more body on the mouth feel. Nice dark color with a chocolat taste.

Black beer appearance, bitter flavor and thin texture. Mostly notable for the cool name. Goes well with salty snacks.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2002
This is billed as a brown ale at the restaraunt where I had it on tap, but it is far more porter-like. Big dark chewy malts with cherry, chocolate, and maple syrup on close. It’s rich and sweet - reminds me of Mackeson’s XXX stout - but with just enough bitter accent and almost enough body to hold up the sweetness.

Not great, but drinkable. The head was not half the size of the one in the picture, and it wasn’t quite that dark. I had it on draft. Probably won’t do again, but not bad.
