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.

Nose is chocolate, chalk, and soap, with a smokiness that comes on more as I drink it. Sweetish and burnt. Watery mouthfeel. Not very good.

Bomber shared by bro, cold. 11MR12. Deep brown-black with a large mocha head. Tight nose, sorta tangy, some coffee and choc notes, mild fruitiness and a touch of caramel, a little vinous, not bad. Medium body, moderate eff., a touch thinner than expected. Pleasant chocolate and vanilla notes, a touch of coconut, still kinda tangy and a little bit harsh, had better; off dry with minimal bitterness and a fairly nice black chocolate/coffee, somewhat fruity finish. Fair.

Completely black, dirty brown head. Not much in the nose at all. Some chocolate, not as pronounced as I thought it would be. Too bitter. Lots of carbonation. Kinda thin on flavor. Light to medium mouthfeel. Overall, an average effort. 070312

Bottle: The aroma consists of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, vanilla, 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 sugary chocolate. The finish has some light roast and cream. Itís medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Purchased from Trader Joes. labeled as Rhinelander Chocolate Stout. The aroma is chocolate, raisins/prunes, roast. The appearance is deep black, light tan head. The flavor is chcolate, raisins, brown sugar, slight gypsum. The finish is chocolate, pine, gypsum. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good. Factor in the $1.99 ffor a bomber price tag, and itís a total winner.

I was worried that this might be too chocolately but I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. Not bad. Dark. Stormy. Smokey. What I expected and hoped. I like the label.

Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is lacking, but a decent amount of lacing is left. 3.0 S: Light roastiness with cocoa powder. Smells good, but is boring. Lightly tangy. 2.0 T: Lightly roasty, cocoa powder, and cooked vegetables. Itís bad, but itís not unthinkably horrid. 2.0 M: Super light body. Carbonation is right. Not creamy at all, just thin. 2.0 D: Again Minhas has disappointed. While this is better than the Imperial Jack, itís still something Iíd never like to drink again.

As "Boatswain Chocolate Stout" from Trader Joes. I didnít expect much if anything from this beer - both being an obvious aliased beer at Trader Joes and for the inexpensive price point (like 2.50 a bomber), so I may have come away a bit more impressed than others might have otherwise. Aroma is a semi-sweet chocolate, with a touch of caramel, and malts. Flavor is a bit like powdered chocolate, with a touch of creaminess to it. Certainly not my first choice to drink, but it may make its way into my cart again, especially to share with some of the uninitiated craft beer friends I have.

Dark brown pour with with medium sized tan head. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa and a hint of coffee. Taste of chocolate, hint of coffee and a tinge of hop bitterness. Higher carbonation. When I seen this was brewed by Minhas I didnt even want to try it but I didnt want to offend the person handing it to me. Simple beer but everything came together nice, really enjoyed this and without a doubt hands down their best beer.
