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.

Bomber from TJ’s. Aroma of chocolate and roasted maltiness. Decent stout. Some roasted coffee and a bit of chocolate. A little hop presence as well.

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.

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.

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.

Rating Boatswain Chocolate Stout variation from Trader Joe’s. Color is black with a decent size brown head that fades to a thin layer. Aroma is fairly mild with basically just roasted malt coming through. Flavor is mild and chocolatey with a nice roasted character throughout. Medium bodied with a fairly creamy mouthfeel, but there is a slightly metallic character present. Overall this stout is OK, nothing spectacular, but certainly not a drain pour either. Considering this bomber was $1.99 at Trader Joe’s, I can’t complain very much.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The aroma is light, the beer smells like roasted and grainy malt, bittersweet chocolate and some coffee. Smells more like grain than it smells like chocolate. The brew tastes like slightly tart dark fruit, roasted malt, cola and a bit of chocolate. For a beer called Chocolate Bunny, I thought there would be a lot more chocolate noticeable. With that being said, it’s not a bad brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. For $2.99 a bomber, I can’t complain too much.

Pour is dark brown with mild tan-brown head. Aroma is sweet coffee with smoky-barley flavor, mild chocolate notes. Taste is sweet, more syrup than expected, but has nice light bitter ending. Mild carbonation, slick somewhat oil like mouth feel overall. Good beer, one or two at a time max

Bottle. Smoke and chocolate syrup aroma. Dark brown with small head. Sweet chocolate syrup and roasted barley malt flavor. Light hint of hay in the finish. Not bad.
