3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a very dark brown color with some carbonation and a roasted/coffee smell. Taste is of roasted malts/coffee and finishes slightly bitter. Overall not a bad brown ale, but nothing spectacular.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice and dark color with a good head. Pungent and sweet aroma. Tasted malty and unassuming. Not complex, almost a little flat (in the flavor, not carbonation). Burnt finish with hoppy leave.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a dark brown/black body topped by a medium thick tan head with a good amount of lace. Weak malty aroma with a slight smokiness. Not much of a nose to this beer. Slighty smokey/roasted malt flavor with a hint of coffee and hops and a touch of sweetness. medium to full bodied and smooth.

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.
