Why does my dog smell like chocolate?

Our dog (see Matt's beautiful picture here
) is a chow mix, or possibly a jindo, but mostly likely some sort of primitive mutt mix. In the past few weeks, she's started to smell, quite distinctly, of chocolate.
Now, this isn't a problem
, of course. It's better than what dogs usually smell like. But I'm curious what caused it. She's been on medicine for hypothyroidism recently, and, if I'm not mistaken, her undercoat is getting darker and turning dark brown. She's seven years old and that's never happened before.
Turning brown? Smelling like chocolate? Is our dog becoming a Hershey's bar?
