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.

The best I’ve tried from Abita. Could use more body on the mouth feel. Nice dark color with a chocolat taste.

Black beer appearance, bitter flavor and thin texture. Mostly notable for the cool name. Goes well with salty snacks.

This is billed as a brown ale at the restaraunt where I had it on tap, but it is far more porter-like. Big dark chewy malts with cherry, chocolate, and maple syrup on close. It’s rich and sweet - reminds me of Mackeson’s XXX stout - but with just enough bitter accent and almost enough body to hold up the sweetness.

Not great, but drinkable. The head was not half the size of the one in the picture, and it wasn’t quite that dark. I had it on draft. Probably won’t do again, but not bad.

Nice and bockish. Sweet malty flavors with a slightly thin, but still satisfying mouthfeel. This more than makes up for Abita’s other mediocre beers.

A nice, somewhat light beer that goes down easy and tastes pretty good, too.

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.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2002
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.

I nice beer to drink while sitting in a dark pub chatting among friends.
