Abita Brewpub in Abita Springs, LA was Turbodog. The beer pours a dark brown color with a frothy beige head that leaves a film on the glass. The aroma consists of caramel, toasted malts, and strong coffee. The taste is bold with coffee before settling in with some chocolate and a strong toasted malt presence. There is a dry roasted finish as well. The alcohol content is 5.6% ABV. This was a very well done English Brown Ale that had a great coffee presence, tying the chocolate and malt flavors all together nicely.
