Turbodog is a dark brown ale brewed with Willamette hops and a combination of pale, crystal and chocolate malts. This combination gives Turbodog its rich body and color and a sweet chocolate toffee-like flavor. Turbodog began as a specialty ale but has gained a huge loyal following and has become one of our flagship brews.

pours a dark opague brown, with two inches of tawny, rocky head.
smells of caramel and roasted walnuts.
Tastes of toasted malt, nuts, caramel, and a hint of hops in the background
One of the smoothest beers i have ever put to my lips, it just carresses the tongue and mouth.
Extemly drinkable, very tasty, the best brown ale i have had to date. An underrated beer, and one of my favorites.

A heavier product from Abita. Very coffee like. Has a great pour and trickles and trances down the glass with grace. A strong but pleasant aroma. Strong appearance. Highlights of a roasting flavor compliment the overall experience.

I just had this beer for the first time and it is amazing! I have had Abita beers before and have liked them fine but this...this is something special. My favorite beer of all time is Alaskan Amber so, this isn't a huge derivation. Still, where can I find a keg of this?

The pour looked good: a dark brown with amber hues, and a nice, fluffy dark-tan head. The smell was of dark malts, nuts (especially chestnuts), and a pinch of bitter hops. The smell was strong and pleasant, and I could catch a whiff of it with the glass sitting on the table a few feet away. The taste was similar to the smell: a great mix of malts, which were simultaneously dark (chocolate), nutty, and sweet (toffee and brown sugar), plus a dash of hop bitterness to round it off and balance the flavor. The beer is well carbonated, and it has a medium mouthfeel. The beer is very drinkable: sweet (but not too sweet), smooth, tasty, not filling, and refreshing.
