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.

Translucent brown in coloor with a small, quickly dissapating head. AAroma was Sweet and malty, roasty, with a chocolate Back. Flavor was SWEET and malty(too much so even for a stout lover) Something about this beer is wrong, itís tacky and Fake, Like the Flavorings used in cooking, this beer is an immitation.

Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. Not much aroma, but I do detect a slight, malty sweetness. Medium bodied with hints of chocolate and toffee in the flavor. A very smooth, easy drinking brown ale with good malty flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 I've seen this in some stores and if i knew it was a brown ale I would have tried it long ago, but nothing on the bottle gives a hint of what the hell this beer is, pours a dark maroonish brown with a thin tan head...slight cocoa/nutty aroma...fizzy, unsweet cocoa bitterness, tad bit too fizzy, thicker than a northern english brown ale but much less hoppy than an american brown..a slight bitterly nutty finish

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2003 The flagship Abita brew, IMO, and the one I keep comin' back to after all these years! I'm never sure quite how to describe this beer. It's certainly no porter, but neither is it a 'nut brown' ale. Hmmm, 'brown ale'...well, it's definitely brown (black, perhaps), and it's an ale. Super roasty, fairly thin body. Appropriately hopped and very drinkable. I think of this as a beer that a college student would brew on a dare. Extreme chocolate malt! Fun beer. I give it a half a point for the name and the ballsy style breaking they've done.

This is one dark beer, but the looks are deceiving. Goes down rather smooth and even a bit light. Went down a bit too easy for a 6+ ABV brew. I think I would go with a 1554 instead of this, but this is the best Abita brew I have sampled thus far.

A nearly 2 year old sample and still malty and flavorful. I should have saved a few more!

Didnít smell too hot, but tastes pretty damn good. It grows on you. Or maybe thatís just the 6.13% ABV....

A fat sweetish funky mess of a beer, with a bit of a sour finish.

khayman70 (154) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2002
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.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2002
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.
