Bottle from Lupe Pinto. Appearance - black olive sheen. Lovely off white head. Nose - honeycomb and chocolate. A dark chocolate Crunchie bar. Taste - caramel and chocolate with a biscuit back drop. Dry malty finish. Palate - close to medium bodied with a crunchy texture. Dry finish. Overall - decent.

Color marrone con riflessi ramati. Naso quasi inesistente e palato con eccesso di caramello e malti torrefatti. Poco equilibrio

Roast nuts and caramel aromas drift up from a dark brown ale. Nice sweet taste. Consumed alongside shrimp, andouille and chicken jambalaya at Maxieís Southern Comfort in Milwaukee. Delicious all around.

IíM YOUR TURBO LOVER! TELL ME THEREíS NO OTHER! Perfectly sums up this beer.

Poured from a bottle, Texarkana. Malty aroma that smells a bit sour, not in a good way. It really does smell a bit like a wet dog. Taste isnít much better. I donít care for the look of it, either. It tastes and smells like it was made from real, quality beer-making ingredients -- not rice or corn -- but thatís all I really have to say that is nice about this beer. The mouthfeel is good and the aftertaste isnít bad. I actually havenít had many brown ales so maybe this isnít my style. I dislike Newcastle.

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

This is by far the worst beer Iíve ever had and Iím 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. Iím sorry but liquid beef jerky does not appeal to me so Iím going to have to say this is by far the worst beer I have ever had and Iíve had some bad beer

Murrow (101) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2017
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.

papat444 (136) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
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 doesnít have that smoothness that i like
