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!

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 Serving: from tap at Smoking Monkey Pizza. Aroma: light malt. Appearance: small, creamy, light-brown head with good lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-red/brown body. Taste: lightly acidic initial flavor and lightly sweet and roasty finish with average duration. Palate: medium body with watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: good.

12floz bottle, BOD: 08.30.2017, $1.75 unit cost, pint glass. Appears a translucent brown with a thin layer of beige head. Light roasted malt segues to a mild woody flavor - not smoky (can be thought of having notes that include a slight nuttiness, bread crust, some dirt, and a hint of caramel, but woody works for me). Very much a session worthy ale. It's not robust, but that is alright.

Brown with dark off white head - Malt with some chocolate in the aorma - Malt body with some chocolate notes and some bitterness - The dark malt and chocoalte with bitterness goes into the finish - This was good

Can in Seattle. Modest, off-gray head on a toasty dark brown, mostly clear. Crusty rye bread nose. Smooth sip, right amount of sweetness matched with woody, bready malt. Nice dark bread impression. Solid.

Malty, chocolatey. Lemon notes in finish with little hops and a little spiciness to it. I think pairs well with spicy food. Medium-fill body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A-. Pours a brown color with khaki head. Very drinkable and somewhat nutty.

Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 17, 2017
From Jun 2006 Poured from 12oz bottle a very deep brown with a smallish head of foam that dissipated quickly leaving just a very fine layer. The smell has a nice sweet and roasted malt nose with some chocolate there as well. The taste is a very tasty sweetish malt up front with just a slight roastiness and a bit of chocolate mid way through. Nice. There's also a slight grainy flavour that shows up in the finish. This is a very solid Brown Ale! Bottom line: Avery Ellie's is a brew that I can easily recommend as it's one of best of its style that I've tasted to date.

I can't believe I've never rated this before. Tried for the first time in 2009 and had it numerous times since. Still one of my favorites. Light brown, some caramel and chocolate. Nice medium roastiness and a solid hop bite to finish.

Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2017
Boks 355ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Langnes. Drukket på Lillehøgda. Ultramørkebrun. Middels høyt kremaktig skum som daler sakte. Litt lacing. Lett karamellaroma. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken lett karamell & skarpbrent malt. Ettersmak av brent malt.
