COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer pours a dark brown with a moderate tan head and smell of toasted coffee and light cocoa. It has a pronounced roasted coffee flavour with slightly sweet cocoa notes concluding with a subtle, well balanced, hop bitterness.

22 oz bottle with a Boatswain label from TJís served in a De Koninck snifter at about 55F. Pours a very dark brown, clear but looks black in the glass excepting the brown edges. The dark tan head has decent retention and leaves good lacing. Plenty of dark and medium chocolate in both the aroma and the flavor. A hint of licorice lingers into the slightly smoky aftertaste. Creamy smooth medium-full body with excellent carbonation.

caramel, alcohol, chocolate, black, clear, minimal head, tan foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, slick feel, flat, bitter 650ml bottle pours dark black with almost no head. Faint caramel/biscuit/cocoa aroma. Taste is predominantly sweet with very faint bitterness of cocoa. Bitterness of 66 IBU advertised - donít think so Mr. Minhas. Cocoa flavour does intensify in the aftertaste a bit, but does not linger. Watery thin mouthfeel with a slight slickness on the tongue. Quite gassy beer after the swallow and a light alcohol warmth. I would have to say that it isnít a bad brew, but would prefer chocolate malt to cocoa powder and adjunct sugar sweetness.

Ron (2607) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle from Trader Joeís in Rochester NY under Boatswain chocolate stout. The aroma consists of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, coffee, and a touch of roast. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of coffee and then some chocolate. The finish has some coffee and cream. Itís medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. This has more coffee than chocolate.

Draft @ Minhas. Pours black with minimal head. Light roasty chocolate. Pretty good. One of the better Minhas beers out there.

Cybercat (3391) - Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Had as Boatswain Chocolate Stout. Comes out of the bottle a beautiful warm sable with a very thick and rather persistent tan head. Aroma has roast malt, chocolate and coffee notes with a hint of caramel. Smoky flavor builds on a roast malt core with coffee, semi-sweet chocolate and caramel plus a hint of horehound. Smooth, firm texture is quite fizzy and lively. Boatswain or bunny, itís a good choice.

Not particularly remarkable, but certainly drinkable. I was a little weirded out by the bottle design, but the pour is more roasty than chocolatey, which I enjoyed. Decent for the small price tag.

You know those cheap ass jumbo chocolate bunnyís you find at the dollar store or in the clearance bin at walgreens a week after Easter. This is the beer version. Lots of cheap malt, a bit of cocoa. Rotten chocolate milk. medium thickness. More alcohol than the 5.5% would indicate. Itís basically the chocolate stout of the malt liquor world.
