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!

not quite a miss, but their weakest offering i’ve had to date. understated nose of chocolate malt and a touch of bittering hops. flavor was the strongpoint at first but became a little less pleasant as the beer warmed. dry finish. Overall, an average or slightly better than average brown ale. So far I like the big ones better (Czar, Hog Heaven, Beast)...but the IPA, Red, Stout & Porter are all better than this."

Can. Cola colored. Nutty aroma. The taste adds big chocolate notes and a charred smokiness on the finish. Light and smooth mouthfeel. An excellent brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
