Dogbrick (8813) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Sample (as Boatswain Chocolate Stout) at the 5th Annual Coldest Day of the Year Stout Tasting on 01/26/2013: Dark brownish pour with a medium thin beige head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, malt and a bit of coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of chocolate malt and mild coffee. The finish is sweet with a short chocolate aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

This beer pours an amazingly rich deep black color with a chocolate milk colored head. It has a rich dark chocolate aroma. It has a slightly more bitter taste than most stouts but is still a good flavorful beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz Bottle. Pours opaque black/brown with a thin cocoa head. There is a touch of cocoa in the aroma, but more roasted coffee than anything. Same for the flavor. Good, but I was expecting better cocoa flavor and less coffee.

Not a bad chocolate stout at all and for $2 I was very happy, smooth, dark, thick and tastey

Poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a black-brown color with a dark brown hue and an average-sized, foamy and creamy, dark tan head with modest retention, and very good cling and lacing. The aroma was a roasty cocoa and chocolate blend with touches of coffee, and some earthy and grainy hops with light bread and toasty effects. It had a bitter-sweet cocoa flavor with sour and bitter touches of earth and grainy, along with a bread and barley component. It had a fairly wet and creamy body with average carbonation, and was watery with a below average thickness.
