Sampled at an esbls tasting. A mostly black with a ring of beige. A syrupy chocolate nose. This tastes ashy more than chocolate. Not great at all.

Very soft texture. Taste of raspberry with a hint of minty orange fruit snack. Very appetizing, but not repeatable.

My bottle says Boatswain Chocolate Stout. Oh well. A nice little stout here. I like the 5.4%. It’s a session beer that has good body and good flavor.

Black pour with a light brown head. Aroma is light chocolate, roasted malt. Taste is watery, bitter chocolate. Glad it was cheap and I bought only one.

22 oz, double aliased "Boatswain" version. Opaque black with a little ring of bubbles. Aroma of caramel and light cocoa. Taste is similar, with a bit more cocoa and some tart apple fruitiness. Light-medium body is watery, sweetish and a tad too fizzy.

unclemattie (4119) - Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Rhinelander Boatswain Chocolate Stout, 650mL bottle, Trader Joe’s Roswell. Black pour, brown head. Aroma of cocoa powder. Tastes of dark chocolate, unsweetened cocoa powder, coffee, and caramel. Finishes with a creamy, milk caramel flavor with coffee liquor mixed in. Really, not all that enjoyable. It is a decent Chocolate Stout, considering the source of the beer. (3461)

Dark as night. Minimal head formation, slight lacing. Very nice chocolate flavor. Recommended.

Pours black with a nice frothy head. Head disappears into a fine cream. The aroma is chocolate, a little yeasty and doughy, a touch sour. Beer is a touch tangy with a frothy mouthfeel. Tastes of semi sweet chocolate surrounds this beer. A little light on body and carbonation compared to other stouts, but the rich flavors make this a taste beer.

22oz. bottle poured into a standard pint glass. This is the Rhinelander Chocolate Bunny Stout with the exact same label as pictured here. Pours a dark brown with a creamy, tan, two finger head that fades within a few minutes and leaves a slight lacing. Aroma is chocolate and malt with hints of coffee and caramel. Not faint, but not very strong either. Taste is cocoa and roasted coffee with hints of maple syrup and molasses. Finishes with a decent hoppy bitterness. Body is on the lighter-medium side with a slight creamy texture. Carbonation is a tad heavy and stings the tounge and mouth. Nice long finish of cocoa and hops. Overall a decent chocolate stout. Certainly nothing ground breaking, but far from bad. I only paid $2.99 for the 22oz at Keg Liquors in Clarksville, Indiana, so definitely worth the price.
