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!

Appearance was clear ruby brown with creamy diminishing tan 1/2 finger head , rings of lacing. Aromas are simple brown sugar, nuts, toast, chocolate and hints of vanilla. Taste was soft sweet toffee, caramel, chocolate, nutty bready, soft roasty backend. Palate was soft creamy smooth CO2 with light-medium body, then an average length smooth off dry balanced malt finish. A wonderful example of an American Brown style.

Vignale (2149) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2014
Burk drucken på Nya Tröls. Mörkt brun, lågt skum. Söt rostad doft med mycket vanilj, men också kakao, kaffe, soja, rostade nötter och aningen tång. relativt söt, men med väldigt fina maltnyanser av kaffe, choklad, mörkt socker och vanilj, lättdrucken och mycket trevlig.

This is a pretty good beer, not something I can drink everyday. My friend does not like it.

hopmelt (196) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Pours clear, deep mahogany, slight creamy khaki head. Aroma chocolate, caramel malt, somewhat bready and a bit of Earth hop. Taste chocolaty, roast, caramel, bready malt, coffee and earthy hop slight bitterness to balance. Mouthfeel medium body, low carbonation, balanced finish slightly on the sweet side. Overall good tasty beer, good flavor and balance.

DocJitsu (1031) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Pours a clear ruby-brown-amber with a khaki colored head. A note or two of coffee on the nose, but mostly cherry fruit roll-up. Wet texture with medium to full body, for the style, with just the mildest scrub toward the finish. The flavors approximate the aromas. More hard candy. The sweetness dies about midway.

Three finger head. Nutty darkmalts... Less sweet... Tinge of bitterness on the finish. Good to session, not particularly complex.

arkurzynski (1559) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Dark brown pour. Aroma of light roast malt with a nutty/biscuit malt background. Flavor is moderate roasted malt with more of the nutty toasted malt. Lingering bitter chocolate and roast.
