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

DANEgerous (85) - Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2014
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hopswagger (188) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2014
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.
