COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beautiful, deep russet brew has the sweet and somewhat nutty character of Adam Avery's late (1992-2002) Chocolate Lab, for which it is named. Crystal and chocolate malts give this beer a brown sugar maltiness with hints of vanilla and nuts, while subtle hopping gives it an overall drinkability that's second to none, just like Ellie!

Dark brown appearance, good head formtaion. Chocolate and hazelnut nose. Full bodied, malty palate, thick, white chocolate, dry toated nuttiness towards the end and well balanced hop bite in the finish.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Dark brown, sweet aroma with a malty nuttiness. Rich with very nice roasted nut and chocolate notes. Still manages to be fairly crisp, with a strong finish leaving only a touch of bitterness.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2004
clear, pale brown color, good head, rocky, fizzy, with nice lacing. Aroma, cola and nuts. Taste: mildness supreme, very little actual action on the palate, almost no hoppiness, but a good malt quotient. Finish barely exists, body is very thin, ...and if I seem to stand on the verge of condemning the brew, at the same time, I can understand that it actually acheives itís aims. A light, unimpressive quaffer, a la Newcastle...nothing wrong with that, the stuff sells, folks like it, but it leaves me cold. I was harsh on the finish, though, for it does carry on for a time, with a caramelly nut flavor. Iíve yet to have a brew from Avery I didnít like, this one I liked the least...eh, but thatís me...

thedm (4888) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 7, 2004
This bottled brew poured a ;arge head of foamy finely sized light brown colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. Its body was trans parent carbonated and ruby red brown colored. It had a very mild brown beer malty aroma and a mildly tingly malt hop palate with a slight hop bite. The flavor contained notes of malt hop and mild red and brown beer.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Pours a dark clear brown with a thin white head that doesnít last. Sweet, toasted, and woody aroma, with notes of cinamon. Thin mouth feel. Nice malty flavor, but a little bland. For a brown ale itís pretty good. But itís still a brown ale.

Holdwine (1071) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Very pleasant brown. Roasty toasty notes up front. Far too drinkable maybe means not enough complexity. A slight disappointment considering their other brews, but still worth pouring one back. Slightly sweet with a nice hoppy finish.

hotstuff (3953) - Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2004
22oz. bottle. Poured a medium sized ivory head with fine-medium sized bubbles. The body was opaque and uncarbonated with a dark brown hue. The aroma was malty, caramel and chocolate. The flavor was sugary with a hop bite and a slight coffee taste. The mouthfeel of this beer was smooth.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2004
A nice brown ale and a nice change of pace from the hoppy beers I have been drinking lately. A very smooth beer and recommended.
