Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Decent selection...had one at Mellow Mushroom in Delray Beach for $3.25 during happy hour. I have always seen these beer in the stores and such, but never got around to try it until now
A: Pours a brown color that leaves an off-white head with minimal retention

S: Nothing in particular dominates this nose, smells like a bunch of different things; malts are apparent, caramel, and earthy tones

T: Sweet tasting, a little chocolate, toffee, caramel, coffee, roasted malts, and again some earthy tones

MF: Medium-light in body, finishes pretty smooth, the aftertaste is forgettable

D: Decent...a little too overwhelming to consume regularly

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from bottle into glass. Pours a deep amber brown with nich bubble head. Smells of sweet malts, caramel, and maybe somewhat nutty. Taste is deff of sweet caramel malts, a bit of hops, and a slight nutty flavor. Its a very good brown. Not the most amazing but a great brew to end my stay in Louisiana. One thing to say about Abita in general...people in Louisian love their local brew. While options are very limited here, I think its great how loyal they are with Abita and how "top shelf" they are regarded here. Cheers NOLA!
