3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Emeril's Tchoup Chop, 3/04. Emeril always talks about this stuff, so I thought I'd try it whilst dining under his roof. Hard to tell color in the dimly lit restuarant, but it appears to be a mahoganey brown with ruby highlights. Huge tan head, ridiculous lacing. Roasted nuts and lighter malts in nose. Sweet, but I don't smell hops. Sweet tasting, especially in the front, reminds me of a stout at first, but it stays sweet and finishes kind of fruity, but bitter like green apple skin. Toffee lingers on the finish. BTW-sake drinkers in the Orlando area might want to check out the Tchoup Chop, they seem to have a nice selection.

Very Dark for an Ale, looked and smells like a porter with a strong molasses sent. Chocolate nutty was pleasant without being overpowering

Good roasted malt aroma, with some faint hops. Poured with a full tan head that clung to the glass as it faded. The beer was clear and brown color. Roasted malt flavor that was mild with a dry finish. The body was quite thin and reminded me of a guiness stout. A decent dry stout that was well made.

aroma of faint hops, chocolate and caromel. the color is black rith ruby highlights and a tan head that fades to lace. flavors of chocolate, caromel and coffee. there is a slight hop flavor. the body is moderate and fairly well balanced. Turbodog is not a wonderful beer but can be a good swill beer. this is a good beer to pair up to gumbo. hell I will even add it to gumbo. I'll post a recipie.

A highly drinkable brown ale that isn't really complex in any way, but is quite refreshing. Nice roasted malt notes of chocolate and coffee with a decent hop bitterness to balance things out. Smell was disapointingly a bit neutral. Emeril uses this beer in some of his recipes, and it seems to be a beer that would lend itself well to food.

Best before 12/23/03 drank on 2/16/04. Cloudy ruby with a big off-white head. Dark grains and alcohol in the aroma. Smooth slightly watery mouthfeel. Ends a tad sweet and a bit rich.
