750ml bottle poured into a Brooklyn snifter.
A - Pours black in color with a thick finger plus of frothy mocha colored foam with good staying power. Head falls over a couple minutes nad leaves behind some light, foamy lacing.
S - Interesting aroma - lots of caramel and molasses, tons of maltose - quite sweet overall on the nose. Some spicy rye, hints of vanilla, and touches of burnt, acrid malt.
T - Mildly tart up front, followed by burnt malt, some charcoal and a light hoppy bitterness. Molasses and dark caramel.
M - Medium body, light astringency and tartness, burnt character, spicy rye. Carbonation is lowish mid-level with a slight tingle to it.
O - Ehhh...kinda non-descript. One of those beers that is just kinda "there". Doesn't impress, doesn't really turn me off - just nothing special. Malty and sweet, seems maybe a bit underattenuated. Lots of worty, unfermented maltose aroma and flavors found here. Not one of my favorite Bruery offerings.

Served in a Boulevard tulip glass.
I'm pretty sure I remember some crappy knock-off cereal from back in the day either being named or having a mascot named "Chocosaurus"... Regardless, this stuff pours a deep black-brown topped by a finger or so of khaki foam. The nose comprises mild roasted malts, chocolate powder, toasted rye bread, and a touch of what seems like clove. The taste brings in more of the same, with no clove and a bit of really light dark fruits hiding, almost cowering in the background. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a nice little beer, though I think I was expecting a bit more chocolate flavors. That said, it's still pretty good.
