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!

Garlic_of_Doom (633) - SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2016
Can. Pours brown with a small khaki head that rests down to form a thin film of foam. Aroma has chocolate, and sweetness, slight roasted malt as well. Taste has chocolate, caramel/sugar, some slight cocoa and bread. Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth mouth feel. Sweet, bitter after taste.

Ok, but too round mouth feel and sweet after taste, I prefer brown ale much dryer than this.
