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!

35.5 cl can @ Nurmo, BBE 24.05.2018. Aroma has coffee, nuts and hayish malt. Also milk chocolate. Flavour has milk chocolate, nuts, some coffee and mild tobacco tones. Dry and rich finish. Good, but I expected more.

355ml can (Alko, Kittilä). Dark brown colour. Small size, tan head, stays. Grainy, chocolate, cocoa in aroma. Chocolate, roast, cocoa, sweetish in taste. Cocoa, herbal hops and chocolate in aftertaste. Somewhat fizzy carbonation. Bit messy, but kind of nice. Solid brew.

Unde (1270) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2018 Brownish red beer with head that disappeared completely and rather quickly, Cola looks. Aroma has roasted malts, nuts, light chocolate. Taste has roasted malts, light metallic tone, some chocolate. Lightish body and high carbonation. Well ok I guess.

Romario (3) - - JAN 30, 2018 does not count
Aroma: malty, has nice roasted malts flavor, a bit nutty. Not too much hops detected in aroma. Appearance: pours a big head of caramel color, bubbles are big, dissipates quickly. Color is deep brown, it's a bit opaque, not quite clear in light. Flavor: Malty, chocolaty, the bitterness is subdued, there is a bit of a roast character to the beer. Hops are almost not noticeable. A hint of fruitiness. Pleasant nice taste. Palate: Moderate carbonation. Medium body with a bit of sweetness. Overall impression: Pretty good beer, nice representation of style.

balloonbuffoon (922) - - DEC 14, 2017
12floz bottle, BOD: 08.30.2017, $1.75 unit cost, pint glass. Appears a translucent brown with a thin layer of beige head. Light roasted malt segues to a mild woody flavor - not smoky (can be thought of having notes that include a slight nuttiness, bread crust, some dirt, and a hint of caramel, but woody works for me). Very much a session worthy ale. It's not robust, but that is alright.

3.7
bergstaden (3512) - Røros, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2017
Brown with dark off white head - Malt with some chocolate in the aorma - Malt body with some chocolate notes and some bitterness - The dark malt and chocoalte with bitterness goes into the finish - This was good

3.6
luttonm (7214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2017
Can in Seattle. Modest, off-gray head on a toasty dark brown, mostly clear. Crusty rye bread nose. Smooth sip, right amount of sweetness matched with woody, bready malt. Nice dark bread impression. Solid.

3.8
Buzzinbeas83 (24) - Paramount, California, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Malty, chocolatey. Lemon notes in finish with little hops and a little spiciness to it. I think pairs well with spicy food. Medium-fill body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
