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!

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden brown with a lacing tan head. Aroma is dry hops and fruity aroma with a light roasted malt note.

Ungstrup (37309) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2007
Bottled. A dark red-brown beer with a bubbly thick brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of caramel and nuts, but also with light notes of chocolate and hops. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel, chocolate, and nuts, as well as lighter notes of vanilla, hops, and cream, leading to a dry woody and slightly bitter end. Dark bitter chocolate notes lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is very smooth. This is how I like my brown ale.

Travlr (24307) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2009
On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso in Dupont Circle. Clear copper colored, malty taste with slight brown sugar edge. Thin. Sweetish.

Leighton (21087) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2010
Tap at East Village Tavern. Supremely solid and sessionable beer. Pours a red-brown hue with a medium, creamy and lingering off-white head. Wonderful aroma of roasted malts, light coffee and cocoa. Flavor is rich with a few layers. Semi-sweet up front with maltiness, it soon becomes much deeper and more robust with strong burnt malt characteristics, such as coffee and milk chocolate. Medium bodied and creamy. Some dry bitterness in the finish. Really fun to drink.

Brown color. Aroma of malt, paper and roasted chicken. Balanced taste, with some malt, roasted malt, caramel, nuts. Quite pleasant.

Bottle, 2003-09-08, 7-4-8-4-14=37
Brown-amber color, creamy head. Nice aroma, original, changing from the light oatmeal, to the caramel, cardboard, coffee, light hop. Pleasant, with a quite good body, malty, with some roasted barley and hazelnuts, but most of all a very nice hop note. A positive surprise!
