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.

Enjoyed via trader joes for 2 bucks. Some rich dark cocoa on the nose with form dark coffee. Clean black, thinnish body, mocha head. Amazing balance of dark grain, chocolate, and coffee. I’m serious. Such a deal!

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 I found this to be a pretty solid beer. The flavor is good, plenty of consistent chocolate throughout. A decent thickness. Pleasantly surprised. Thanks Trader Joe’s! Had again under Underworld label. Still liked it a bit.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is light roasty and sweet, bland but not offensive. Sweet and some caramel candy sugary and cocoa. Flavor starts sweet, quickly picking up a more bitter chocolate, which is good until it becomes metallic and astringent. Finishes bitter and sharp. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.

At last, a cheap chocolate stout bomber from my favorite purveyor of cheap brews. This one pours an opaque dark brown, almost black, with an almost nonexistent head and no lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, and a bit of coffee. Texture is befitting a stout, but more oily than creamy. Taste is almost sour, with chocolate coming up in the finish. A decent but not great offering, which proves that cheap craft beer is not an oxymoron.

Pours dark brown in color with a rather sizable tan head. Not a bad aroma, actually. Some chocolate along with roasted malt and a mild toffee sweetness. There might even be a touch of vanilla. The roasted malt is the most dominant flavor, but there is a little bit of toffee and chocolate in there. The vanilla that seemed present on the nose doesn’t really come through at all. The body on this beer is incredibly thin and light.

650ml bottle. Purchased as Boatswain Chocolate stout from Trader Joes. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head that soon recedes to a film. The aroma is mild and indistinct with traces of mocha, coffee and dark fruits. The taste is earthy with leaves, dirt, raisins and dark bitter chocolates. The palate is unbalanced starting thin and closing pasty. Finishes short and dry. Overall: Not bad, but not much to recommend it either. A great value at $1.99 a bomber at Trader Joes.

Sampled in the big bottle from Trader Joes. Interesting brew. Like the chocolate flavor but it really likes the creaminess you expect from a stout. Really kind of watery, but still very good.

Found at Trader Joe’s under Boatswain Chocolate Stout. A bitter malted chocolate flavor. I’m not a stout guy, but not a bad choice for $1.99.

kathouse (1046) - Nevada, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Bottled as Underworld Brewing Chocolate Stout and purchased at Fresh & Easy grocery store. Pours deep brown with a thick, long lasting head. Aroma of chocolate and moderate hop that is herbal and grassy. No coffee notes I could tell. Good body with some toasted flavor. Cocoa notes and hop bitterness mesh but not necessarily well balanced. Finish is dry.

Cheap as fuck, and not terrible. I had it alongside Choklat and Dubious, it was probably the lowest but not my much.
