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!

From a bottle. Pours a deep dark brown, mild chocolate aroma and roasted coffee flavours make this well worth the effort.

It pours dark brown with a brown head that has moderate head retention. It is fairly clear. It has a chocolate and caramel aroma. The are background aromas of nuts, vanilla, and very light hops. The caramel is the most prominent flavor with the chocolate very noticeable. There are low levels of vanilla and nuts with a light spiciness. It has a moderate body with a moderately bitter finish. Overall, the balance is towards the malts with the hops being noticeable and providing good balance.

Dark malt and coffee in flavor and taste. Good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. Okay beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

From tap. Clear dark reddish brown, a finger of beige head. Generous aromatics of chocolate, almonds, roasted malt. Medium bodied, flavors of dark chocolate, nuts, sweet caramel notes. Pleasant nutty finish. Overall this smells great and and is nicely balanced. Almost a light porter in style.

Not bad but has a little after taste that I wasn't fond of. Over all, it's a good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste is kind of sweet with brown sugar and roasted almonds. Pretty ok brownie without impressing too much.

Flaske. Som en Brown ale skal være. Nøddebrun med et fint skumhoved. Duft af malt, let chokolade. Det er smagen der er i højsædet. Sødlig nødder med en lækker humleantast der gør øllen frisk og lækker. God mundfylde.

MaltOne (366) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Pours dark, almost opaque, cola brown. Slightly sweet, brown bread aroma. Similar taste, with a very faint coffee finish, Palate is medium-light with a slightly creamy texture. Overall, its OK but doesn’t really get your attention... in fairness, I a suspect this can was a little off. Sorry Ellie.

All törst har ett mål, diktade Karin Boye. Tveksamt om hon syftade på Avery Ellies Brown Ale. I så fall var hon mer sofistikerad i sin poesi än i sin ölsmak. Inte för att man på något vis behöver skämmas för att gilla denna brygd. Ibland räcker det om magsäcken uppfylls. Ens hetaste önskningar kan vänta till en annan dag.

Like it used to be in the good old days. A dark, heavy aroma. Looks like a brown Ale should. A mild taste of malts, bread, sugar, with low carbonation. Very nice with simple home cooking.
