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.

Nice color and carmel aroma much to sweet for a brown ale.

Dark brown beer with decent mocha head. Caramel aroma. Malty flavor, minimal hops. A trifle watery, but not bad.

Jake Barnes (456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2002
Not very impressive at all. Decent aroma of chocolate malt. The body is very,very thin. The flavor is mostly toasted malt with a bit of chocolate and a metallic flavor that hovers in the background. You have to work to find the flavor though because it disappears fast. A bit disappointing.

JMerritt (1765) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2002
Dark brown in color with a very nice creamy head. I found it to be too carbonated and had a strange metallic/glass aftertaste. Pass.

Tasted better than a Guinness with less of the after taste. Great Beer. On the other hand, I also have had one that has been sitting on the shelf for too long at the local grocery store. The after taste is strong and tastes much like soy sauce.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2002
Kind of a vienna brown ale. Fewer hops than a good brown ale, less malt and more fruity flavor than a good vienna. That said a mainstream brown ale.

Nothing special. A slight metallic aftertaste and not much of the ’sweet chocolate toffee like flavors’

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - APR 6, 2002
A decent but unimpressive brown ale. no particularmalt or hop characteristics gave this beer a rather bland sweetness and not much else.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 This is a great morning brew. Many times when i return from an early morning hunting or fishing trip this is the brew. I don't know where the porter or stout references come from but this is a brown ale. I did not find any over strong character malt or hop. It struck me as a good beer to introduce your mainstream friends to.
