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!

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.

Stefano (2028) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2006
Deep copper in color with ruby highlights and a large light tan head. Aroma is malty. Flavor has the usual notes of roasted malt, nuts, chocolate, caramel, some hops and coffee. Roasty, lightly bitter aftertaste. Medium-full, round and creamy on the palate - good body for a brown ale.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - OCT 19, 2006
12oz, no date. Pours a clear ruby brown with a one finger tan head. Aroma of toasted malts and nuts, and a little resiny piney hops. Hops make a bigger appearance in the taste, though not by much. Seem to be just pine, not really any bitterness until the finish, and quite mild. A little chalkiness as well. Nuts, toasty and caramel malts, and a subtle sweetness (more brown sugar than white sugar) are also there. Moderate carbonation, light-medium bodied. Better than the 14’er I just had.

yngwie (17176) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2006
Bottled. Clear, dark reddish brown. Mocha, roasted malt and some chocolate in the aroma and flavor. More emphasis on the roastiness in the aroma. Medium body and some bitterness in the finish. A very nice brown ale. (060929)

12oz bottle. Filtered and deep deep dark reddish hue. Spiral of off-white head. Nutty, caramel and toffee in the nose. Rich and very smooth. All malts. Caramel and bitter chocolate. This is good! Slight coffee note. Very solid smooth brown! The more beers that I have from Avery, the more I like how they represent a style. Spot On!
