This is a very flavorful beer with a delightful chocolate nose and initial flavor and a roasted malt finish. If you are a fan of this style of stout, you must try this one.

Disappointing. Just a really disappointing stout. Chocolate and malt, thin bodied. Meh.

Black pour with a 1 finger, creamy to oily tan head. Aroma is chocolate, odd fruity notes and some minerality. Flavor is roast, chocolate syrup, caramel, a little char and more odd fruity notes, like green bananas and sour apples. Light to medium body, very syrupy entry, light carbonation and drier, chalkier, but still syrupy finish. Meh, too sweet and pretty one dimensional, but for $3/bomber, I was expecting worse. Actually looks pretty nice.

Nice caramel color head on a pitch tar body. Wonderful flavor. Lots of coffee over tones with cacoa powder rally coming they on the tongue. Great stout. Tastes like an oatmeal stout with chocolate syrup infused. Its worse quality is exactly how sweet it is. Dark chocolate, coffee liquor flavor

Boatswain Chocolate Stout has a thick, soapy, beige head, a very dark-brown (essentially, black) appearance, some stray, ascending bubbles appearing on the sides of the glass, and a thin lacing sheen. The aroma is of sweet, malty, dark bread, char, a touch of chocolate, and some cream. Taste is of those elements, with a mellow bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, and Boatswain Chocolate Stout finishes semi-wet and easy drinking. RJT

Un verre de Boatswain Chocolate Stout offert par mon nouveau voisin à la campagne. Un stout brun qui ne mousse pas vraiment. Un nez doux de caramel et de chocolat mi-amer. Un goût de malts toastés et de chocolat. Une touche de café acide. Un corps mince et passablement pétillant. Une texture mince mais pas aqueuse. Une finale légèrement amère de torréfaction avec une longueur bien chocolatée. Sensiblement artificielle sans être mauvaise. Merci Frank!

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 Oh Minhas, oh Minhas..... please let up on the sweet yeast flavors with all of your beers! I really think that with just a little work you could be producing some decent beers! I guess that making a "cheap" beer with great labeling is your schtick? Anyway, this stout is an OK beer with a decent roasted flavor on the finish and a full mouth feel. I’d have another considering the price point. Bring it camping and have some fun with it! Calgary Minhaus has great people and it’s a nice place to visit and eat but the beer taste is all too similar / average. This is my favorite of all the beers that I have tried from Minhaus. Just my honest opinion.

Pitch black colour and bitter hint of coffee make this a nice after dinner drink. Like an espresso but without the caffeine to keep you up.

Bomber via trade. Poured a silky black under a deep beige creamy head. Aroma is odd, some bad chocolate, soy, cola, wet medium toast, sugar, some dark fruit. Body is too thin watery with average carbonation. Flavor is the same as the aroma. Meh very underwhelmed.

The aroma is malt, chocolate, coffee, bread and roasty. The color is black with a big light brown creamy head, good lacing. The taste is light bitter. The body is light to medium, the texture thin, the carbonation average. Overall not so great, watery, doesn’t really hit the mark.
