Not a lot of aroma, dark ruby appearance. Hint of Belgian which really works. Easy to drink in winter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Sweet with typical notes of bread and yeast
Appearance: as dark a dark brown can be without being black and a tan head
Taste: Sweet and smokey with notes of Carmel and toasted nuts
Palate: Slightly creamy with assertive carbonation
Overall: Good a nice one to have on hand at a party as it is unique yet still highly approachable.

So I bought this bottle today and didnít think I needed to check the date but it is 5/27/13. There is not really any aroma that I can detect - maybe a little bit of chocolate. Pours black, with a large foamy tan head - lots of lacing. The taste of this isnít too bad - lightly sweet and goes down smooth. Average carbonation, not a long finish, thick and creamy. I would probably have this again but Iíd like to taste one that isnít expired.

Chocolate toffee aroma. Not flavor. Flavors are from a darker roasting. More nutty. A tasty sipper. Slight effervescence at the end

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
P: Deep dark mahogany body with creamy bubbly tan froth.
S: Aroma is similar to a box of crayons. Also, caramel, toffee, cardboard, toast and faint bitter cooking chocolate.
T/M: Roasted toffee, caramel, burnt toast, nuts and bitter coffee beans. Mouthfeel seems a tad light and watery. Nice bitterness that blends well with the dark malts. Finish is dry with dark malt lingers.
O: A decent brown ale that is easy drinking. Hops are nice and the blend was well done. Overall a nice drinkable beer that would be a great weekend beer to run through.

$3.50 bottle had at Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.
Iíve had Pecan Harvest from Abita and thought it was decent, and I feel the same about this beer... itís a decent brew that is interesting enough to warrant maybe drinking a couple of, but thatís about it. Thereís a nice caramel/chocolate/roast combination going on with a fairly high carbonation that makes Turbodog an easy drinker, but nothing made me too excited about it. I must say Iím shocked "the Bros." gave this a 90 rating, because itís almost the very definition of an average beer to my taste buds... hey, different strokes. Iíd have it again if offered, but probably wouldnít buy it again. A pretty average brown ale thatís not all-too satisfying. But hey, the price is right.

Rcvd in trade: it pours a deep dark brown and leaves the same color body that gave a foamy tan one finger head that lasted a good minute, some light lacing was left; the aroma was based around some sweet malts with a toastiness that comes out as well. Some light coffee came out too. The flavoring has sweet malts combined very nicely with the roastiness leaving the coffee to faint a bit more than in the smell. Its slightly easy on the palate yet also has a degree of wateriness to it. Overall, not a bad beer, could be worth it to have again if offered

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark ruby brown, rim head only, tiny streaks of lace. Taste is carbonated malt that moves straight through the palate, adding bitter that is closer to chocolate or coffee than hops. Bitter lingers for quite a while. This isnít as solid as I expected. It is somewhat heavy and filling, even bloating, in a way that doesnít encourage more than one.
