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.

Dark black with thick tan head. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Heavy, creamy and filling body. Tastes like a fairly typical stout with espresso and tobacco. I’m not really picking up on any of the chocolate.

SHIG (3555) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle thanks to Burg326: Poured a chocolate brown with no head. Aroma is a sour chocolate if that made sense. Taste is a carbonated chocolate extract and roasted malt.

From Trader Joe’s, labeled as Boatswain Chocolate Stout. Black pour. Inch plus tan head that recedes to tan lacing. Aroma of cocoa and some tangy sourness. Taste is coffee, tangy sourness, and bitterness. Lighter body and heavier carbonation. Leaves a pleasant cocoa aftertaste on the tongue. Not a bad price at $1.99 for this 22 oz bottle.

650ml brown bottle. Deep brown to balck pour and pretty much opaque, airy head is light brown, some good clingy foam in the glass. Nose has chocolate/cocoa and a bit of coffee and caramel. Taste has a lot of roasted barley, coffee and dark chocolate up front. A fairly bitter vein runs through this beer and it finishes with some decent leafy hops. Aftertaste has chocolate and cocoa. Medium bodied beer with average carbonation. A nice surprise from this usually lacklustre producer.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle - purchased at Minhas in Monroe, WI. Dark brown pour with reddish highlights, nice initial head that fades to a ring. Nice aroma of cocoa and mild coffee. Medium palate - but a bit thin for the style. Taste is chocolate/cocoa, a milder amount of roastiness...overall, not bad. Enjoyable brew.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 Got this from Trader Joe’s under the name "Boatswain Chocolate Stout." Personally, I think "Chocolate Bunny Stout" is a much better name, but what do I know? Pours pitch black with a tan head. The head almost didn’t form; I had to pour vigorously just to get a little bit of head. Aroma is coffee, and a hint of bitter chocolate. Flavor is mildly bitter. Smooth mouth feel, but I like my stouts to be a bit thicker. Overall, this a very drinkable ale. I just wish it were a bit more chocolatey.

Bomber shared among friends, poured a dark opaque brown, with a chocolatey roasty malt aroma. Flavor is the same, but burnt chocolate, a touch of hops, and very thin on the palate for a stout...
