Brownish ruby appearance, nice aroma, light/medium hops flavor. A decent enough beer, although I drank it from a bottle that wasn’t properly stored and not fresh. Not bad, but really nothing noteworthy.

This is by far the worst beer I’ve ever had and I’m from Louisiana which is where abita is made so I love them, but I have to say they were way off on this one. I would like to make a note that it is probably called turbodog because it literally taste like beef jerky dog treats. It even smells like beef jerky. If you eat beef jerky frequently please buy this beer at least one bottle at a bar smell it and then taste it and think of beef jerky and that is exactly what you will get. I’m sorry but liquid beef jerky does not appeal to me so I’m going to have to say this is by far the worst beer I have ever had and I’ve had some bad beer

Bottle at home. Pours ruby brown, tan head. Aroma is malty and sweet, a little cloying. Nice, even roast character, not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. Mild hop bitterness. Alcohol on the finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Very pleasant, easy-drinking brown.

Appearance: Brown-red body with a thick tan head that sticks to the sides of my glass. Smell: Caramel, some sour notes, berries. Taste: Sour cherries, some wood (oak?) and wheat. Has a distinct though quiet metallic finish. I also taste berries, dried not fresh. Mouthfeel: Low carbonation with an average body and a touch thin. Not uncomfortable but it doesn’t have that smoothness that i like

Perhaps my favorite beer. So far it goes well with just about anything I’ve eaten.

Listigovers (1173) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2016
Dark brown but ruby red in the light, dense tan head. Aroma of toffee. Clearn and malty roast and burnt caramel flavour. Medium to full bodied, creamy, a hint of chocolate. Not overwhelming, nice and warming to drink.

Turbo Dog • Aroma (8/10): Caramelos y miel. Toques de chocolate y mantequilla • Apariencia 4/5: o Cabeza (color, consistencia y duración):  Cabeza marrón, escasa, con nata de corta duración. o Cuerpo (textura, carbonización, partículas y color):  Cuerpo oscuro, opaco de escasas burbujas. • Sabor 9/10 (inicio, final y duración): o Inicio: un tanto insípido. Apenas unos toques salados o Final: Ligeros umamis, ligerísimo amargor. Larga duración en los sabores. • Paladar 5/5 (Cuerpo, textura, carbonatación, final). o Cuerpo ligero. Textura ligeramente aceitosa. Escazas burbujas. Final metálico en los dientes y encías. Retornos llenos de café y chocolates. Rica. Resumen 18/20: Una cerveza deliciosa. La marcaré en mi memoria como de las que más se me antojan. Sus sabores son muy ligeros y balanceados. Sin embargo tampoco es una cerveza demasiado compleja de catar. Pero si es muy disfrutable. Se las recomiendo.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2016
- braun-schwarze Farbe mit guter, grobporiger Schaumbildung - leichte Aromen nach Malz, Honig, Nuss und etwas Lakritz - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist dann leider doch etwas dünn und lässt von den oben beschrie- benen Aromen nicht viel übrig - der Körper ist sehr schlank mit einem unguten Hang zur Wässrigkeit - im Mittelteil zerfließen die wenigen schmeckbaren Aromen in einen Brei - im Abgang kann man den Hopfen mit viel Fantasie noch etwas erahnen Fazit: Seltsam dünnes und undefinierbares Porter

Bottle at a salamander party. Cocoa, malty, sweet, brown sugar, slight nutty aromas and flavors. Passable brown, but probably wouldn’t get again.
