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.

berkshirejohn (4921) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
12oz bottle from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. A cola coloured pour with a thin cream head that laces the glass pleasantly; aroma of toffee with some earthy hops; a rich, toasty, toffee flavoured body that sits nicely in the mouth and is not too sweet and has a touch of smoke; and then a dry finish with a trace of chocolate. Rather good.

Bottled 355ml. -at O’Hara Zagreb. Brown coloured with red glare, small to medium sized pale brown head, mild roasty nose. Roasted malt, caramel, mild chocolate and weak fruity with notes of caramel in the finish. Expected better.

RafeAU (253) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2015
Dark ruby pour with foamy tan head. Dark malt aroma. Sweet with gentle bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit light. This is okay.

Deep dark black with a little bit of head. Sweeter than I expected with a nice malt backbone and just bitter enough hop profile.

Westmeister (1954) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Neighbor brought this over. Not a bad brown ale. Nutty, caramel, the touch of earthy hops makes it interesting enough.

Bork (387) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Middle of the road brown ale with some chocolate, toffee and roasted flavors. A little too light on the body and rather watery on the disappointingly short finish.

Beerathon (1421) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2014
This is a decent representation of the style. Nearly black in color with thin head, but some lacing. Caramel, toffee, and sweet malt in the flavor. Enough of a hop presence to somewhat balance.

ordybill (414) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- this has a strong malt aroma Appearance- – A dark brown color with a large head. . Taste- – A malt overload, this has a strong flavor Palate-– this is a medium bodied beer with a creamy texture Overall-– not a horrible example of an English Brown Ale but it was just okay in my book Comments – Thanks to BigLove for sending this one cross-country. This is the sleeper of the Abita line.

AStoutFan (7) - Geneva, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2014 does not count
This beer really surprised me. When I first tasted it I thought, whoa I made a mistake. But after the first few sips it seemed to do the opposite of what most beers do. It got better, not worse. It is an interesting unique beer with a distinct almost toffee or bubble gum lollipop flavor, which does not sound appealing for a beer. But in its own way it is really good. Head minimal mouthfeel meh, but taste a pleasant surprise. To top it off it is almost as smooth and easy to drink as a big box american lager beer (water).

Nice deep copper brown color, head quickly dissipated. Kind of bland flavor but still not a bad brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
