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!

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Bottle. Pours brown, with deep ruby hints. Carmelly and nutty aromas and flavors. Sweet malts more present in the flavor, and maybe a touch of chocolate. Medium light bitterness, and decent mouthfeel. Decent brown ale if you ask me.

Bottle, from Julioís. Good nose, sweet, malty. Chocolate, caramel, nutty, little milky. Kinda like a tootsie roll. Clean orangy brown color, small head that faded quickly. Roasty sweet flavors, Like aromas, with a woody, salty addition. Medium body, lite creamy/oily mouthfeel, dry powdery finish, has a little bitterness that lingers. Nice brew, surprised I hadnít got to this one yet as Iíve had on tap out a few times.

Pours dark brown with a red gleam, thick lasting tan head. Sweet toffeish and malty aroma with hoppy hints and brown sugar. Weak. Malt and chocolate flavor with a good hoppy bitterness. Rather mild and a bit watery. Easy drinkable. Thanks kxkeller for sharing!

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Pours a medium brown, vanilla colored whtie head with decent lacing. Aroma is of sweet malt, caramel, and oats. Flavor is woody and sweet, like molasses candy, mixed with salt water taffey. (Yes I know how weird that sounds) Overall different and tasty!

smells freaking awesome. like walnuts and almond, with some maple and some heavy cream. somewhat of a smores aroma as well. deep brown in color with some ruby undertones. tastes really malty and creamy, like dark chocolate with that bit of a bite on the end, some brown sugar hints. thin on the palate but pretty excellent overall.

Deep cocoa brown with nice foamy head. The aroma is husky with chocolate and gingerbread graham crakcers. The flavor is malty, but fairly light bodied. Slightly astringent.

Bottled. #7 of 31 US Beers for <a href=http://www.americanbeermonth.com>American Beer Month. Rated live, and this was picked up at the bargain rack of a store with no AC, so letís see. Thereís a rich, malty smell upon opening that can come with sitting around. Head thins out quickly and it looks a little like a barley wine. Yes indeed, nutty, with a brown sugar and honey sweetness to the taste. Thereís a bit of hop bitterness on the tongue after the first few sips. Light raisin and plum fruitiness. Not easy drinking; this demands your attention all the way down. But nice to contemplate at each sip.

A decent brown ale. Pours dark brown with a short lived head. Flavor seems a liitle thin and watery. Flavor is quite sweet and sugary.
