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.
