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.

Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks jtclockwork). Looks solid; cola with a bit of beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, roast, and chocolate. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Arayaga2 (2129) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2013
Opaque brown black with 1.5" of dimpled, light brown head. Aroma is cocoa and light malt. Taste is the same, but bordering on acrid, with a sharp bark component. Rather light overall. $2.20

thornecb (5537) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours deep brown into a snifter. Mocha head with little retention recedes to skim surface leaving scant spiders. Sour chocolate aromas. Dry with sour citrus and chocolate upfront turning to sour espresso and smoke in the lasting finish.

Pours dark chocolate w/ a nice mocha head that leaves no lacing. The aroma is a little light for a stout which is fitting because if there was such a thing as a light stout, this would b it. It’s highly drinkable & has some nice subtle chocolate flavor. Pretty tasty & not bad overall.

Suttree (6099) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2013
As "Boatswain Chocolate stout". Black, big tan head. Smells chocolatey, toasty, and a hint of coffee. Taste is chocolatey, as well, but something seems a bit...off, somehow. odd medicinal or even boozy note. Not terrible, but not as good as it could be.

SDalkoholic (2359) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle from Fresh and Easy: Appeared a dark brownish tinted black liquid topped with a decent formation of foam head. What really surprised me about this stout was the aroma, it has so much character because of the rich dark malts used that bring about scents of fresh ground coffee bean and hints of chocolate. The flavor is less promising than my nose had led me to believe but it still does hold a mild blend of coffee bean while also allowing for a roasty flavor and a taste of sweetness as if I had added a shot of cream to my pint glass. The balance of the flavors is somewhat off but for only $2 for a bomber size bottle, I feel I shouldn’t be complaining or have such high expectations.

22 oz bomber The stout pours dark brown in color with a rather sizable tan head. The head dissapated but a thin layer stayed with the beverage. Some lacing the aroma was of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. The roasted malt and cocoa are the most dominant flavors. The body was medium wih a soft carbonation. This is a purchase from Trader Joe’s. Not bad for an evening of stout drinking.
