Derek881 (1037) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a black-brown color with a dark brown hue and an average-sized, foamy and creamy, dark tan head with modest retention, and very good cling and lacing. The aroma was a roasty cocoa and chocolate blend with touches of coffee, and some earthy and grainy hops with light bread and toasty effects. It had a bitter-sweet cocoa flavor with sour and bitter touches of earth and grainy, along with a bread and barley component. It had a fairly wet and creamy body with average carbonation, and was watery with a below average thickness.

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.

brokensail (12362) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2012
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.
