Turbodog poured a chocolate brown color with a thumb width, light tan head. The aroma is mild for a brown ale, and is dominated mostly by roasted malts. The body is smooth and velvety, with little carbonation. There is more roasted malt before some coffee notes on the backend that lead to a lightly bitter finish.
Overall, this is an above average brown ale. Abita's beers are usually easy drinking and fit nicely within style guidelines. At a fairly mild 5.6% ABV this would make for a nice session beer.
