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.

Dark brown color, medium head. Roasted malts, slightly hoppy. Nicely balanced. Lighter bodied, but full flavored. Nice malt flavor. Mouthfeel is a little thin but tolerable.Finish is clean. Aftertaste is somewhat malty and slightly bitter.

Dark brown with reddish edges and a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted nuts and caramel. Toffe taste in middle and at the finish. Great name.

Dark brown color - good for a brown ale. Dark fruit and a decent amount of roast. Nice brown.

I’m quite disappointed with this beer. Very sweet, medicinal flavor. Possibly, I purchased a bad 6-pk. I will re-rate when I purchase it again.

This very much reminds me of Dixie Blackened Voodoo, but maybe a bit better. I’m not too sure about that "chocolate-toffee" flavor. It may be there, but it is very slight. This has a nice, roasty finish, even if it doesn’t linger on the palate as long as I would like.

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.
