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!

saxo (18208) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2006
Bottle. Nice tan head. Color is dark brown. Aroma is roast malt. Taste is chocolate and roast malt. Pretty close to a stout this one.

3.3
Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Clear deep copper “brown-ish” color with thin white head. Nice malty aroma. A combo of lightly roasted and highly roasted grains. Nice taste of roasted malts that hug your tongue with what seems to be a fine grain grit feeling. The caramel and toffee flavors are also there. A slight bitterness hits in the beginning as a background flavor behind the malts. The finish is mostly a sweet and dry malt mouth feel. Nothing really stands out with this beer. It’s good. But really, ho hum.

jimmyh221 (157) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2006
It was dark brown in color with a spare head. There was a chocholate taste with a hint of coffee. There was also a milky taste to it. The lacing was excellent.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - MAY 17, 2006
There is a pleasent aroma of nuts and chocolate. The pour is brown with reddish hues and a tan head. Sweet flavor of chocolate greets the palate at first and grows to a finish of lightly roasted nuts.

3.6
oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Pours a deep dark golden brown color. Aromas of vanilla, brown sugar, and touches of nuts, and coffee. Flavor has a nice blend of sweetness and coffee bitter.

4.5
keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Pours a deep dark brown with tan head. Chocolate/nutty/roasted malt aroma, similar flavor. Very strong coffee notes as well. A bit too easy to quaff, one of my favorite beers ever.

3.2
unibaren (157) - 8000 Århus C, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2006
I think the aroma of this one is rather roasted which is a little surprising for a brown ale. Dark mahogany colour with matching light brown head. Head has average longevity and carbonation is restrained. Flavour is malted, nutty and on the dry side. Hints of caramel with a nice dry, hoppy aftertaste. A very nice brown ale which maybe is a little too powerful flavour-wise.

3.1
bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2006
Bottle. Brown reddish in colour with a small head. Roasted malts and nuts. And also a slight hint of caramel. Nice sweetness.

3.6
shadey (2125) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Dark dark red with a thin white head and plenty of attractive lacing. The aroma is nutty chocolate and almost peanut buttery. The flavor presents more roast and again a pleasent nutty character. This is a tastey brown all.

3.5
puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Strong roasty and peanuty aroma. Very smooth and creamy and delicious. Flavor is a bit more thin, roasty, creamy, chestnut though lacking the nice peanut-butter of the aroma.
