3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The chocolate lab on the can is perfect image for this beer. Transparent brown pour. Aroma is of roasted nuts and malts. Taste follows with nice warm and sweet malts and then a bitter chocolate after. A bit much on carbonation I thought, but still was very drinkable.

Pours a dark brown color, a bit of light comes through the edges of the beer, with a nice tan head. Smells of malt and chocolate, the taste is pretty similar with a bit of nuttiness, reminds me more of a stout that a brown ale.

This is my new favorite session beer. Ellie's is a 'new old favorite'. Pours a dark brown and has a nice balanced mealtimes yet with a brown sugar sweetness. Yum.

Bottle. Pours a brown color with off white head. Chocolate, malty, nutty, vanilla aromas. Chocolate, light roasty, nutty, malty flavors. Iíve always wanted to really like this beer, but it seems like it always has a little bit of a metallic taste that is a little off-putting to me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown, not much of a head, lacing nonexistent. Nose is a whole lotta molasses, malt, chocolate.(big fucking chocolate), think: brown bodied, . Mouth is medium bodied, molasses, malt, munchy crunchy chocolaty, brown sugar, crunchy fall leaves. Look... Stylistically, I donít really like brown ales as a matter of taste, but this is an out-fucking-standing cerveza! Mucho gusto, guey!
