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!

Sweet slightly nutty aroma with some light coffee notes. Dark brown body with little head. Toasty malt character dominates with a slightly thick mouth feel. Notes of coffee and caramel, a bit like a stout in character.

Pours a nice brown color with a tan head. The aroma is pleasant with a nice sweetness from the chocolate malts, nuttiness, and some coffee. The flavor is the perfect combination of the aromas with hop hop presence. The mouth feel is medium.

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 (893) - 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.

2.9
PanMarek (462) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2017
Dark brown opaque pour with creamy beige foam that lasts. A lot of hops in the nose, but the sweet, roasted malts come out after a few minutes. Medium body and slightly slick. Lots of sweet cocoa and vanilla malt in the taste and some dry earthiness. The hops come in toward the end and leave a bitter finish. A good combination.
