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!

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.

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.

Auburn brown colors, roasted malt aroma. Slightly nutty flavor. A crisp bitterness in the end. Kind of watery and weak.

The 12 ounce bottle poured a clear reddish-brown beverage with a medium sized creamy tan head that was mostly lasting and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma had a huge malt component to it mostly of the roasted variety along with a less prominent bread-like quality. There was little to no hop character to the aroma. The body was medium with smooth carbonation and a somewhat watery texture. The flavor started off slightly sweet and malty with a nice subtle hop character in the background The finish was medium in length with a nice slight bitterness to it.

out of the bottle. deep mahogany brown with ruby highlights. sizable off-white head and average lacing. smells strongly of roasted coffee and sweet malts, chocolate and vanilla. tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, vanilla and almonds. its starts off tasting very sweet and way too roasted and finishes dry and slightly bitter. some earthiness in the finish. I thought it was pretty outstanding for a brown ale which I typically don’t like. the flavors are not well balanced but the flavors are good standing alone for a brown ale.

maybe I was expecting too much from this one, but it just never struck a chord with me. hints of a nutty flavor and some sweetness, but not like I have come to expect from the style. drinkable, but not one I care to re-visit.

Pours brown with a thick tan head. Hardly any aroma to this beer, maybe a little malt,vanilla, and some caramel. The flavor of this beer is great, very well balanced and easy going, with notes of chocolate, malts, coffee, and caramel.

On tap @ Coles. One of my more enjoyable brown ales. Toasty & malty flavor with nice choclate malt in the aroma. Seemed to go down very smoothly one after another.

A Great brown ale from the Avery Brewing Company.Deep rich chocolate color with a nice light thick head. toasty flavor wiht a nice hoppy late finish. I would drink this everyday, which may lead to drinking problem.
