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.

Jado (525) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2014
From 345 ml bottle. Pours a deep cola brown with honey coloured highlights at the edge and a small off-white head that settles to a thin cap. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, flowers, dark bread, pie crust and raisins. Taste is soft fruit at the start that quickly resolves into rich caramel and milk chocolate and a light roast bitterness. Lightly spicy aftertaste. Good US brown.

TheJestersBeer (2059) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a medium to dark mahogany brown, with a beige head. Quite roasted, malty, faintly sour aroma, toffee, diacetyl, hops. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Malty, roasted, slightly watery taste, caramel, chocolate, hops, faintly sour? This feels more like a dark lager than a brown ale. (2014-01-31)

Bottle. Sweet caramel and pale malt aroma with a hint of chocolate. Pours dark brown with a ruby hue. Good light brown head with moderate lacing. Sweet caramel and toffee flavors to start. Finishes smooth with a dry, slightly hoppy finish. Refreshing and quite drink, a nice brown ale.
