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!

Brown with ruby hints. Foamy head and good lacing. Nice blend of malts and hops. Caramel and bitterness. Some metallic hints though. Flavor is odd. It ranges from bitter to sweet. Fruits and malts with some roast. Dry palate that finishes with a burst of roasty malts.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Mahogany color. Aroma is full, dry, malty and nutty- simple but quite nice. Very smooth palate. Initial malty taste, followed by a hint of bitterness then nuttiness through the finish. Pretty solid brown ale.

A wonderful brown ale, probaly my favorite Domestic Brown ale!!. Its got the right amount of toasted malty flavor with being too over roasted, slight choclate and rich caramel flavors complement this beer. A must have!!!

Clear and dark brown with a solid tan head. Rich, malty aroma with some roasted, toffee and vanilla notes. A bit tart in flavor with a decent hop presence. Good body with chocolate and caramel flavors. The finishing bitterness is a little rough with some metallic flavors.

Pailhead (4417) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is light chocolate and a real nice hop aroma. Pours a transparent orangish-brown with a white head. More IPA flavors than brown ale flavors. Lightly malty up front with a lightly sweet and decent grapefruit hop finish.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2005
I lived in Boulder for 4 and a half years, and I didn’t try this until I moved to MI. Kind of disgraceful. At any rate, this was a tastey brown ale. Well suited to drinking with a nice burger with Worcestershire souce.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2005
Transparent brown/mahogany. Creamy head disolves quickly. Nutty sweet malt aroma. With a very strong nut taste almost too much so. Finishes very clean and crisp.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Auburn ruby color, small lacing & head. Nose of toffee, butter & light hops. Malty body with a light bitter balance. Tastes more watery but easy drinking & full bodied. Finishes smoky.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Brown color with medium size head. Slight chocolate aroma with nutty rasted flavor in the mouth. Weak kind of plain finish that leaves your mouth dry.
