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.

Toasty, non-burnt tasting -- not sure what kind of beer this really is but it’s not what you think of in terms of a brown ale. Clean finish, light palate, not sweet. Almost an American schwarzbier. Aroma has a little sulfur, but this is an easy dark to drink a lot of. Good value. Good option for less-filling dark beer.

A brown ale that tastes and looks more like a porter. Color of cola with a larger head. Aromas of roasted barley and earthy hops. Grainy is a perfect descripter for the body. Roasted malt and coffee followed by a light bitterness in the flavor profile. Not bad, but not particularly impressive either.

Really enjoyed this beer. In addition to its wonderful taste, I was impressed with how well this beer complemented my food (red beans and rice with strips of cat fish and sausage, mmm).

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 Abita’s 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. I’ve already tried the Purple Haze and enjoyed it, so I decided to pick this one up for this paycheck. Since I’m 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.

Isn’t this a bit fizzy for a brown ale? Casta Morena kicks Turbo Dog’s ass, having had them side by side. This Abita’s better than their Bock, but still isn’t anything to write home about. New Orleans, (as Clinton would say) ’Ah feeyul yer payeen’ for having to drink this crap.

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