After a long time as a specialty brew by Abita Beer out of Louisiana, Turbodog has become one of Abita’s flagship offerings. The ale is dark brown and features a mild chocolate flavor and aroma. After rolling the ale around in the glass the smell of toffee also permeated from the wonderful pale golden head.
This brew is lovely because it doesn’t hold anything back. The bitterness is made possible by the addition of Willamette hops, and the sweetness is at that perfect spot where it doesn’t over power, or understate. This is a brew perfect for a mid summer night, crisp, refreshing, and full-bodied – just whats needed after a long day of sun. Though I suppose you could enjoy almost any beer regardless of the weather or the season.
