CHOCOLATE LAB

porter

SOME OF THE BEST IDEAS FOR OUR CRAFT BEERS COME FROM OUR FRIENDS — BOTH THE TWO- AND FOUR-LEGGED VARIETIES.

KIRBY IS A DACHSHUND MAN. MIKE LIKES HIS SETTERS. CARL IS THE PROUD PAPA OF A LOVABLE LAB. AS LOYAL COMPANIONS, THEY ALL HAVE MANY ADMIRABLE QUALITIES — FINE CHARACTER, A SENSE OF FUN, AND OF COURSE A DARK, SATINY COAT. AND WE THOUGHT, "WHY NOT BREW A BEER TO MATCH?"

NEXT THING YOU KNOW, WE HAD BREWED UP #003 CHOCOLATE LAB.

THE SECRET TO THIS PORTER ISN'T A SECRET AT ALL, IT'S RIGHT THERE IN THE NAME: CHOCOLATE.

AS IN CHOCOLATE MALT INSTEAD OF BLACK MALT, FOR A DEEP VELVET BLUSH AND WONDERFUL DEPTH OF FLAVOR (WITHOUT ANY OF THAT CHALKY AFTERTASTE YOU GET WITH SOME PORTERS.) LUSCIOUS CHOCOLATE AND CARAMEL NOTES, WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF BITTERING.

THERE'S RICHNESS WITHOUT HEAVINESS. A CREAMY SMOOTH TEXTURE. AND A SWEET, CLEAN FINISH.

SO REALLY, THE NAME CHOCOLATE LAB IS A NATURAL FIT, FOR ITS QUALITIES, FOR ITS INSPIRATION — AND WITH ANY LUCK, FOR YOU. GIVE IT A TRY.

WE THINK YOU'LL AGREE, THIS IS A BEER WORTH FETCHING.
