Wouldnt turn this down if it was handed to us...however, wouldnt buy it again either. OK at best.

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 isnt much better. I dont 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 thats all I really have to say that is nice about this beer. The mouthfeel is good and the aftertaste isnt bad. I actually havent had many brown ales so maybe this isnt 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 wasnt properly stored and not fresh. Not bad, but really nothing noteworthy.

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

Murrow (100) - 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 doesnt have that smoothness that i like

Perhaps my favorite beer. So far it goes well with just about anything Ive eaten.

Listigovers (1085) - 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 duracin):  Cabeza marrn, escasa, con nata de corta duracin. o Cuerpo (textura, carbonizacin, partculas y color):  Cuerpo oscuro, opaco de escasas burbujas. Sabor 9/10 (inicio, final y duracin): o Inicio: un tanto inspido. Apenas unos toques salados o Final: Ligeros umamis, ligersimo amargor. Larga duracin en los sabores. Paladar 5/5 (Cuerpo, textura, carbonatacin, final). o Cuerpo ligero. Textura ligeramente aceitosa. Escazas burbujas. Final metlico en los dientes y encas. Retornos llenos de caf y chocolates. Rica. Resumen 18/20: Una cerveza deliciosa. La marcar en mi memoria como de las que ms 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 dnn und lsst von den oben beschrie- benen Aromen nicht viel brig - der Krper ist sehr schlank mit einem unguten Hang zur Wssrigkeit - im Mittelteil zerflieen die wenigen schmeckbaren Aromen in einen Brei - im Abgang kann man den Hopfen mit viel Fantasie noch etwas erahnen Fazit: Seltsam dnnes und undefinierbares Porter
