A really nice porter, even though a bit light. There’s enough flavor to sustain interest, but it won’t get in the way of food.

Tried it because of the interesting name. I would buy it again, if the dipstick on my car were reading low.

This is a pretty good beer for Louisiana.

A little lighter than I had expected, after reading so much about it. I had to drive to Virginia to try it, but it was worth it. Nice mix of flavors, but I think I was expecting more, given the hype surrounding this beer.

Finally available in California, this cult beer is really quite tasty. Sweet chocolate aroma with a bit of bread. Medium-light body with terrific chocolate, yeast, toffee and very mild roast characterists. Malty but with a dry finish. Definitely a winner and a fine session beer.

Abita Turbo Dog lists itself as a ’dark ale’. It’s not quite up to porter intensity or stength but that’s OK because its slightly more easygoing personality is great with old fashoined Louisiana food. Great choice for the Sunday barbecuer; slightly sweet, yet chewy texture. Good beer to enjoy in multiples.

Pretty thin. Nice color. Darker than I expected. Flavor could use some improvement.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 This is an ale? I found it to be rather schwarzbier like. Chocolatey with a little spice and maybe even some licorice. Fairly German. Its mild and clean qualities esp made me think it was a lager (or at least lagered). Fairly light-bodied and almost watery - but not really. But it doesn't have the mouthfeel of porter or stout. Perhaps some hints of metallic flavors...similar to Dixie Blackened Voodoo. Re-rate with higher numbers, and the funny thing is I still think of it as a light schwarzbier, oscura, dunkel or other dark German lager. My notes from the session: Brown with red, til its almost purple. Full foamy head. Mild notes of cocoa, caramel and weak coffee in the nose. Pleasing cocoa/coffee flavor with dry clean finish. This is a pretty nice oscura. Easy drinking.

Reminds me most of a black beer-style lager. Pretty thin and a little sweet, a good choice if you want something a little on the dark side, but still a light body.
