Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Turbodog is the inspiration for this robust dark ale. It is brewed with generous amounts of pale, caramel, and chocolate malts and Willamette hops. Whole natural vanilla beans are added during the aging process.This combination provides a rich body and color with chocolate, vanilla and toffee-like flavor.

Bought from a Spec's in Houston, Tx.

First tried this last winter. Went back and bought a few bottles to save. What a fantastic beer. I'm already a fan of Turbo Dog, and while I like that beer, I love this one. This and Andygator have really impressed me lately from Abita.

I'd love to see this turned into a regular beer in their lineup. It borders on a porter in ways to me. Fantastic.
