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.

A brown ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with plums. In mouth, a boring chalky ale with light brunes, rather pedestrian. On tap at VT Brewers Fest, July 17 2010.

Bottle poured a clear dark brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of carmel, cocoa and brown sugar. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, carmel, lighjt vanilla and a hint of mollasses with a smooth semi-sweet finish. A very drinkable beer!

BeerandBlues2 (10255) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Brown with a small tan head. Fruity and hoppy aroma that includes some pine and smoke notes. Bitter and a little sour to the taste. A little sweet but almost like a tart, dark chocolate. Creamy on the palate.

Maria (10179) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2008
Trade with Fonefan. The color is red mahogany and the head is huge and creamy. The aroma has notes of malt, berries, candy sugar and caramel. The flavour has sweetness and notes of candy sugar, roasted malt, raisin, light citrus, licorice and the finish has a slightly dry bitterness and hints of milk chocolate. It is quite OK, but I think they forgot the turbo in this engine...

hopscotch (9737) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2003
I guess I'll go slightly against the grain here. This beer rocks! Sparkling clear, beautiful deep ruby ale. Large, rocky, mostly lasting tan head. Spiraling, dripping lacework. Vineous aroma with notes of milk chocolate, buttermilk and coffee. The flavor is chocolatey and sweet with lots of toasted malts and whispers of coffee and vanilla. Balanced fairly nicely. A bit astringent. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Medium-length, chewy, astringent and bitter finish. Damn nice brown ale! World class and underrated!

Spicy food and turbo dog, what a great combo! Dark brown pur with a cream colored head. I have had this in the bottle and on tap and I like it each and every time. Very smooth and full flavored. Nice beer.

Bottle @ home. Pours a clear, dark brown appearance with a brown head. Brown sugar, chocolate cake, vanilla, nuts, light pine in the nose. Creamy mouth feel. A bit tart fruity, nutty, chocolate, caramel, dessert, toffee flavor. A bit off.
