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!

Bottle. Poured a dark brown with red highlights on the side of the glass. Small tan head that did produce some lacing. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and some hops. The flavor had coffee, roast, wheat, and a light hoppy bitter background. Medium to full body with a coffee aftertaste.

6 pack. Pours a nice chocolate brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is light. Rather standard brown ale, nothing to distinguish itself among the other brown ales available. Clean finish. A nice beer.

An earthy nose with a chocolate powder overtone greets the nose with a nutty hello. Dark coppery brown with a slight, quickly receding head, this brown is somewhat sweet for the style. I would have preferred a bit more hops and a little less sweetness. Nice even finish leaves a smattering of malt and lite hoppiness.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - FEB 13, 2006
(on bottle) A really average US brown, where I missed the hops, both in nose and taste. bready, mashy taste, small roast, but mostly waterish. I suspect the whole Avery shipment to Denmark has been damaged in some way, haven´t had a single really good brew out of it.

this was a little dissappointing. It dosen’t even compare to DogfishHeads ’indian’ brown ale. But I guess it’s above average. Not the best avery has to offer.

madsberg (11170) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2006
Bottled: Burgundy coloured. Light unclear. Fluffy light brown head. Sød, maltet duft med lette chocolade noter. Smag er nogenlunde som duften. Distinkte choco noter. God fylde. ER frugtig og sød i enden med lette humlebitre noter. God mainstream Brown Ale.

35,5 cl bottle. Dark reddish brown colour with a little head. Aroma of carmel with hints of roasted malt and some light citrus. Light smooth flavour of roastedness, sweetness and ends up with a little bitter aftertaste.

"Poured a dark brown, thin tan head. Smelled of roasted chocolate and coffee. Didn’t taste much like a brown ale little hoppy flavor to it. Mouthfeel was was to carbonated. "
