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.

An incredibly thick beer tha rivals guiness, this chocolaty beer takes a while to drink but is certainly enjoyable. A slight cedar-tasting sensation mixed with the traditional abita carmel flavor makes this candy of a beer a great appertif to a spicy dinner. Do try and enjoy one of Abitaís most famous beers, served year round unlike its seasonal line.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 12oz. bottle. Lightly sweet, roasty, grainy malt aroma, some caramel and dark breadiness with hints of chocolate here and there and some faint butterscotch. Deep, dark red-brown color with a fine, lasting, tan head. Flavor is roasty, lightly tangy and bitter to start, developing more caramel and toffee before a gently sweet, spicy, peppery finish. Well carbonated palate with a medium body. Draught version benefits somewhat due to the cohesion of flavors and added smoothness.

Is this a brown ale? I have seen this catagorized as a porter, too. Pretty smooth, with a wierd aftertaste. Good, not great.

I found a place that has 3 Abita products. Iíve already tried the Purple Haze and enjoyed it, so I decided to pick this one up for this paycheck. Since Iím fairly new to beer, this will be my first experience with a brown ale. I can say that I do enjoy it. The smell is great and it goes down extremely smooth. A very good beer, IMO.

A good looking, smooth, easy drinking ale. I had this on draft right after drinking a Purple Haze (also quite good) from the same brewer. These guys know how to brew good beer.

Isnít this a bit fizzy for a brown ale? Casta Morena kicks Turbo Dogís ass, having had them side by side. This Abitaís better than their Bock, but still isnít anything to write home about. New Orleans, (as Clinton would say) íAh feeyul yer payeení for having to drink this crap.

Really quite good. Samustdog is right about the aftertaste. Good overall.

Strange aftertaste, but overall a very satisfying Ale.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 Very good. The chocalate malts stand out well. This stuff is damn drinkable and it beats most stouts Iíve tried. I wish more brewerys were exploring the different incarnations of brown ale.

Inconsistent. Have had it at the brewery and their restaurant and it was excellent. Off the shelf it wasnít quite so good. Can have a strong caramel taste.
