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.

Review from notes. Sampled 12/22.

Abita Turbodog, on-tap and served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a surprisingly dark black with hints of tawny brown.

S: Very malty nose, full of crystal and chocolate malt. Sweet though, with a light smoke character, and a touch of roast.

T: Smooth, creamy cocoa, light caramel, and a slight bitter hoppiness. Light notes of wood and honey. A touch dry and astringent on the finish.

MF: Creamy and smooth light-to-medium body with a dry aftertaste.

O: A good sessionable Brown Ale, with nice malty and earthy notes. Not overly bitter and relatively smooth.
