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!

Bottled. #7 of 31 US Beers for <a href=http://www.americanbeermonth.com>American Beer Month. Rated live, and this was picked up at the bargain rack of a store with no AC, so let’s see. There’s a rich, malty smell upon opening that can come with sitting around. Head thins out quickly and it looks a little like a barley wine. Yes indeed, nutty, with a brown sugar and honey sweetness to the taste. There’s a bit of hop bitterness on the tongue after the first few sips. Light raisin and plum fruitiness. Not easy drinking; this demands your attention all the way down. But nice to contemplate at each sip.

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

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.

hauxe (939) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2017
Pours brown from the can with a sand colored head. Aroma is lightly nutty, roasted cereal, sour yogurt. Taste is sweet/sour. The sour takes the upper hand at the finish. Body is somewhat thin, moderate carbonation. Not the best brown ale.
