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 from Table and Vine price of $3.59. I had a good guess on what I was getting with the price. My guess was correct. That being said; nose is light dry roast with mostly chocolate powder. Taste again is no surprise here. Cocoa powder, roasted malt and roasted grain. Thin body with a light chalky texture. Overall it really met my expectations and was good for the price.

Pours ultra black with an off-white head, looks delicious. Aroma of roasted malt, maybe some chocolate.. smells a bit thin. Tastes strongly of cocoa, maybe some syrup too - fairly sweet. Palate is quite bitter, but smooth just a little thin. Good stout.

TheRatKing (122) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle into a tulip. Pours a nice murky black with a frothy tan head that steadily fades, leaving some light lacing on the glass. Nose is bittersweet chocolate, slight hops, slight coffee and a tiny bit of smoke. Taste arrive with a bit more smoke (unexpected but not at all unpleasant,) turning to dark chocolate and coffee, dry finish. Somewhat watery mouthfeel but has very nice carbonation for the breed. A rather good chocolate stout; there are better of course but at a mere $4 CDN a bottle not many that offer this good a glass at that good a bargain.

Not very good. Barely any chocolate in this beer and it was way too thin to hold substantial flavor. Needs more body and a better malt back to tasty like much of anything.

Strykzone (5534) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
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.
