look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured smooth. Small off white head that died really fast. Very little lacing. Amber to dark brown depending on the light.

S: Some toffee malt. Toasty chocolate notes. Certainly on the sweet side. Really liked how bright it is.

T: Holds really true to the smell with almost a smoky after taste.

M: Smooth but a little flat. But it sits well the more you have.

O: So far my favorite Abita. Low ABL % so it's kinda like a dark sweet session beer. Nice change up if you are getting hopped out. While there are better representations of this style this beer is typically a great value pick.

$3.50 bottle had at Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.

I've had Pecan Harvest from Abita and thought it was decent, and I feel the same about this beer... it's a decent brew that is interesting enough to warrant maybe drinking a couple of, but that's about it. There's a nice caramel/chocolate/roast combination going on with a fairly high carbonation that makes Turbodog an easy drinker, but nothing made me too excited about it. I must say I'm shocked "the Bros." gave this a 90 rating, because it's almost the very definition of an average beer to my taste buds... hey, different strokes. I'd have it again if offered, but probably wouldn't buy it again. A pretty average brown ale that's not all-too satisfying. But hey, the price is right.
