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.

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.

The brown ale that wanted to be a porter. A 6% beer that is very drinkable. Great malt flavor. Drink this with spicy food and taste both the beer and your food.

dark brown color very smooth with not too much carbonation. can definately taste the malts in this one. kinda had the hint of a porter here. all in all pretty good. i’d definately drink some again.

Chestnut brown to near black in appearance and quite opaque as well. Nice, steady tan head. Chalky, black chocolate flavor that is reminiscent of a Schwarzbier than a brown ale.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 14, 2002
Clear reddish chestnut. Thin foamy tan head. Light but steady carbonation. Aroma of roasted caramel, chocolate, grass and hard water. Crisp and sharp on the tongue. Solid initial roasted caramel/chocolate maltiness. Lingering bitterness. Easy drinking. Nice feel to it. Light to medium bodied. Pings of hop bitterness. Finishes with an increased roastedness and dry chocolate character. Very surprising brew and quite tasty to boot.

Aurelius (4317) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2002
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.
