In addition to the inspired name, this is a great beer. Roasty and dark but not nearly as heavy as one would expect. A great pub beer.

This beer poured a nice dark reddish amber color that formed a nice bubbly light tan head that left some nice lace when it subsided. The aroma was of malt malt and toffee. The flavor was of malt, caramel and toffee. The finish was medium and had a slightly toffee aspect to it. Not a bad beer.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2005 Rerate Slightly funky aroma, hints of hair tonic. Deep dark purple appearance, some chocolate notes in the flavor with a decently thick mouthfeel. A good standby here in Louisiana. Original 3.6 Very impressed - quite a complex beer. Nice dark, thick appearance with a thick creamy head. Will definitely purchase again.

With a name like TurboDog I expected something wild and intense. So I was a little disappointed at first taste. It’s OK stuff, decent flavor, a bit thin in texture. A nice beer, but not something I will crave in the future.

Excellent roasted flavor with a smooth finish. A lot of good stout characteristics without the typical heaviness.

This came in a collection of American Craft Beers. For some reason I always assumed it was going to be an American Standard kind of beer. So I was delightfully surprised when I poured and tasted this beer. Very dark brown with a small head. The aroma seemed a little stale to me, but the taste was nice and roasty/nutty. Not my favorite brown ale, but not too bad either.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2003 Dark brown color, with light brown head. strong aroma of raostiness and smokiness. the taste is wonderfully light compared to the aroma. just a small bit of smokiness blending well with the light bittering hops. the mouthfeel is great, very very smooth, not light but it does not hang around in the mouth for too long. very good beer.

Good porter. Clean and no harsh aftertaste. Rich body.

Draught is much better, nice dark, nutty, malty sweet ale.
