Read glowing reviews, was slightly disappointed---maybe my bottles were old---basic porter.

Very easy to drink. Lacking a great aroma or really any hop finish. Nice chocolate taste though. Definitely worth getting again.

I had this at a local Cajun joint near my house and let me tell you, this is THE perfect beer to drink with a creole dish. It did not impress me by itself but it complimented the food very nicely.

A really nice porter, even though a bit light. There’s enough flavor to sustain interest, but it won’t get in the way of food.

Tried it because of the interesting name. I would buy it again, if the dipstick on my car were reading low.

A little lighter than I had expected, after reading so much about it. I had to drive to Virginia to try it, but it was worth it. Nice mix of flavors, but I think I was expecting more, given the hype surrounding this beer.

Finally available in California, this cult beer is really quite tasty. Sweet chocolate aroma with a bit of bread. Medium-light body with terrific chocolate, yeast, toffee and very mild roast characterists. Malty but with a dry finish. Definitely a winner and a fine session beer.

Abita Turbo Dog lists itself as a ’dark ale’. It’s not quite up to porter intensity or stength but that’s OK because its slightly more easygoing personality is great with old fashoined Louisiana food. Great choice for the Sunday barbecuer; slightly sweet, yet chewy texture. Good beer to enjoy in multiples.
