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.

This is not what Emeril Lagasse makes it out to be. Dark in color, but not that impressive...rather thin body.

I was quite surprised... I stared at the tap displaying ’Turbodog’ for some time and after a few beers thought, ’why not?’ I sampled it at the wonderful Berkley Front in Berkley, MI. Then I just had to order one. There is just such a nice feel to this beer. Dark, subtle flavors, but drinks much thineer than it is and leaves the palate decently clean. I will certainly have this again. I’m lowering the rating slightly... I had it again, and it’s a nicely crafted beer, but I think I got a bit excited when I rated it.

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.

ARMed (598) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2002
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.
