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!

Sweet nutty aroma, thin flavor. On the whole a slighty nutty sweet ale and not much else. Not offensive.

Has chocolate and nuts in the aroma. Taste is mostly malty and nutty, w/some faint hops and a little bottle metal flavoring. Okay stuff.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - DEC 18, 2006
first beer i had at the tasting room. dark brown pour. tan head. small notes of sweetness in the nose. flavor was toasted malty crunch. little to no hop character. smooth and quite carbonated. pretty monochromatic and easy to drink.

3.4
Habanero (4680) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2006
Pours with a brown body and a nice beige head. Nose of malt, caramel and hops. Flavour of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, liqorice and coffee. Medium bodied. Lovely bitter finish. Very drinkable.

maltdog (626) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Scarlett on the glass, boasting an attractive parchment head and silly-string lacing. While still foamy, the bouquet exhibits bubblegum, dried banana and pinenapple chips, and spicy hop; however, vinous aromas dominate once the head collapses. Neither extreme really says "beer" to me. Barely interesting generic malt flavor, chocolate, walnut, and more spicy hop. Smokey? Each sip is different. Starts sweet, finishes tart.

lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 pours a dark brown with a very nice four finger white to off white head. not to much of an aroma where you can tell whats in there but there is a little hops,caramel, and chocolate smell right after the pour. flavor is a smooth hops taste with some nutty, caramel, chocolate taste. medium body with some lacing, very smooth though, i like it very well balanced. hop aroma is a little stronger half way down the glass when the head disappears. the head seems to seal in the aroma. big lacing half way down and more of the hop flavor comes out little creamy through out as well.

3.2
BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2006
Brown with a touch of red body and nice frothy tan head. Lots of toasty malts with some almond in the nose. Flavour is roasted malts some nuts and a hint of chocolate. Nice flavour but a tad thin.

3.5
badgerben (5179) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Dark ruby color with a very thin head. Very nutty and chalky aroma. Strong nut flavor. A little bit of chocolate on the finish. Nothing overwhelming, but it’s a pretty good session brew.

2.6
garretjax (103) - Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Auburn brown colors, roasted malt aroma. Slightly nutty flavor. A crisp bitterness in the end. Kind of watery and weak.
