Abita Turbodog ....

Today I will have a second beer from Abita Brewing Company - Turbodog.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 5.6% ABV.  The Abita web site describes the style as a brown ale, and lists 28 IBUs.

Turbodog poured with a very thick, darker brown head.  The beer color is a dark brown, with maybe a little red, that lets very little light through the glass when held up to the light.  The aroma has some chocolate,  and a little sweetness, like caramel or toffee.  This beer is a little thin in the mouth, but there are some nice malts to the taste.  There is also a little sweetness that seems more like a dark fruit than something like caramel.  Smooth, mild to medium bodied.  Would probably be a good darker beer to drink several of without feeling too heavy.  A slightly malty aftertaste.
