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.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2003
A dark brown ale witha diminished tan head. A nutty malty aroma. A light to medium body and a decent carbonation. A malty flavor with a slight nuttiness. Some caramel and chocolate with a decent bitterness.

This beer is actually pretty good! I "built my own" 6 pack of Abita beers.. put 2 of these in it. It definately has a lot of alcohol in it (maybe that's why the word "turbo" is in the name... it turbo boosts your drunkeness). Overall, not something I would consider a real masterpeice of a beer, but definately worth trying.

This is one of the worst Brown Ales that I have ever had, way to much chocolate. It is more like a coffee.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Very dark brown color. Malty and chocolate nose. I thought it tasted a bit like a watered down porter. Had a distintive coffee finish. Overall - decent.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Deep ruby-garnett hue. Burnt chocolate nose. Small sticky tannish head. Very drinkable, smooth, coffee, light chocolate, toffee, caramel...Not much going on, but really drinkable. A great session brew that would compliment any nice cajun dish...hot damn

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2003
UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 More of a porter than a brown ale. Overload of malt and hop all at the same time. Not a bad beer but you can do better. Good to get your "dog" started! RERATE: What kind of dumb rating was that? But I believe that was one of my first. Appearance is a dark brown with a large head. Flavor is malty with some chocolate and caramel present. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Overall a decent beer but a little thin bodied. This was my first beer that wasnt a BMC product. I will give it some sentimental credit

Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Sort of like a Dunkel-Weisse, sort of like a porter, sort of decent. I liked the chocolate textures balanced with crisp hops but not enough to go crazy over. A bit weak in body.

Rich dark color, lace is very shorlived. Aroma is very pleasantly malty with some coffee hints, very porter like, but quite weak. Starts much like the aroma, like a weak porter with mediocore coffee/chocolaty malt. A little sourness detracts from the flavor, but not overly so. Nicely balanced by just a touch of hops. Finishes sweet and coffee like. Tastes like a porter that could use some more malt. Still a decent beer, wont go looking fot it again though.
