COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 (Boatswain Chocolate Stout) from Trader Joes Bakersfield. Nose is cocoa, coffee, roast, and hints of licorice. Black with a big, long lasting, heavy lacing, cinnamon tan head. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, and a hint of bitterness. Great stout for $1.99 a bomber.

bottle - Pours very dark brown with an aroma of roast malt and chocolate. The flavor has ample cocoa taste with good hops balance and a medium to full body. It’s not a great beer. For this type of beer I’d take a Young’s Double Chocolate first, but this beer is good and the best of the four Rhinelander beers I purchased.

Bomber from TJ’s - Not bad at all! I thought the finish was a little funky, and it reminded me of tropical fruit. sort of an odd hop selection, but solid beer, especially considering the value.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2012 A very tasty chocolate stout. Very soft and slick on the palate. Coffee taste with a slight coco bite, enjoy the softness and how easy it is going down. MMM.

Dark brown pour with with medium sized tan head. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa and a hint of coffee. Taste of chocolate, hint of coffee and a tinge of hop bitterness. Higher carbonation. When I seen this was brewed by Minhas I didnt even want to try it but I didnt want to offend the person handing it to me. Simple beer but everything came together nice, really enjoyed this and without a doubt hands down their best beer.

Purchased from Trader Joes. labeled as Rhinelander Chocolate Stout. The aroma is chocolate, raisins/prunes, roast. The appearance is deep black, light tan head. The flavor is chcolate, raisins, brown sugar, slight gypsum. The finish is chocolate, pine, gypsum. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good. Factor in the $1.99 ffor a bomber price tag, and it’s a total winner.

Bottle: The aroma consists of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of roast. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sugary chocolate. The finish has some light roast and cream. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

22oz. bottle poured into a standard pint glass. This is the Rhinelander Chocolate Bunny Stout with the exact same label as pictured here. Pours a dark brown with a creamy, tan, two finger head that fades within a few minutes and leaves a slight lacing. Aroma is chocolate and malt with hints of coffee and caramel. Not faint, but not very strong either. Taste is cocoa and roasted coffee with hints of maple syrup and molasses. Finishes with a decent hoppy bitterness. Body is on the lighter-medium side with a slight creamy texture. Carbonation is a tad heavy and stings the tounge and mouth. Nice long finish of cocoa and hops. Overall a decent chocolate stout. Certainly nothing ground breaking, but far from bad. I only paid $2.99 for the 22oz at Keg Liquors in Clarksville, Indiana, so definitely worth the price.

Pours ultra black with an off-white head, looks delicious. Aroma of roasted malt, maybe some chocolate.. smells a bit thin. Tastes strongly of cocoa, maybe some syrup too - fairly sweet. Palate is quite bitter, but smooth just a little thin. Good stout.

Picked this up as Boatswains Chocolate Stout at Trader Joe’s. Black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of roast malt and cocoa powder. The flavor is not overly sweet, well balanced with the roast malts. Coffee and cocoa notes. Good body. A little on the high side carbonation wise, but not a real fault just noting it.
