3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark, no real head or lace. Can’t really identify the odor, but its not pleasant. Chocolaty taste. More watery than I’d expected. Nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A wonderful surprise. Bought a bottle on Bourboun street at a convenient store and they offered to open it for me as I left. What a town - New Orleans. Turbo Dog had a great roasted flavour, with a mild malty finish.

Dark brown color, medium head. Roasted malts, slightly hoppy. Nicely balanced. Lighter bodied, but full flavored. Nice malt flavor. Mouthfeel is a little thin but tolerable.Finish is clean. Aftertaste is somewhat malty and slightly bitter.

Dark brown color - good for a brown ale. Dark fruit and a decent amount of roast. Nice brown.

Dark cherry color, some head, white head. Some say feolic aromas I say yogurt culture bacteria. Slightly alcoholic which is normal at 6.1 %?

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
I’m quite disappointed with this beer. Very sweet, medicinal flavor. Possibly, I purchased a bad 6-pk. I will re-rate when I purchase it again.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This very much reminds me of Dixie Blackened Voodoo, but maybe a bit better. I’m not too sure about that "chocolate-toffee" flavor. It may be there, but it is very slight. This has a nice, roasty finish, even if it doesn’t linger on the palate as long as I would like.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is not what Emeril Lagasse makes it out to be. Dark in color, but not that impressive...rather thin body.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was quite surprised... I stared at the tap displaying ’Turbodog’ for some time and after a few beers thought, ’why not?’ I sampled it at the wonderful Berkley Front in Berkley, MI. Then I just had to order one. There is just such a nice feel to this beer. Dark, subtle flavors, but drinks much thineer than it is and leaves the palate decently clean. I will certainly have this again. I’m lowering the rating slightly... I had it again, and it’s a nicely crafted beer, but I think I got a bit excited when I rated it.
