Appearance: Pours black with white head.
Aroma: Faint roast, chocolate syrup.
Taste: Chocolate that is slightly artificial, faint roast, very faint bitterness.
Summary: Drinkable but just okay, mostly bought because of the name.
Not very good. Barely any chocolate in this beer and it was way too thin to hold substantial flavor. Needs more body and a better malt back to tasty like much of anything. Strykzone (7302) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. A mostly black with a ring of beige. A syrupy chocolate nose. This tastes ashy more than chocolate. Not great at all. brosco (5) - - SEP 25, 2012 does not count
Very soft texture. Taste of raspberry with a hint of minty orange fruit snack. Very appetizing, but not repeatable. GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Very dark, coffee color, with generous head. Chocolate, coffee, nutty, caramel aromas. Rich, creamy, chocolaty, roast, coffee, caramel flavors & aftertaste. Very sweet with some mild bitterness.

My bottle says Boatswain Chocolate Stout. Oh well. A nice little stout here. I like the 5.4%. It’s a session beer that has good body and good flavor. GranvilleTim (1855) - Granville, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Black pour with a light brown head. Aroma is light chocolate, roasted malt. Taste is watery, bitter chocolate. Glad it was cheap and I bought only one. nearbeer (5365) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2012
22 oz, double aliased "Boatswain" version. Opaque black with a little ring of bubbles. Aroma of caramel and light cocoa. Taste is similar, with a bit more cocoa and some tart apple fruitiness. Light-medium body is watery, sweetish and a tad too fizzy. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Rhinelander Boatswain Chocolate Stout, 650mL bottle, Trader Joe’s Roswell. Black pour, brown head. Aroma of cocoa powder. Tastes of dark chocolate, unsweetened cocoa powder, coffee, and caramel. Finishes with a creamy, milk caramel flavor with coffee liquor mixed in. Really, not all that enjoyable. It is a decent Chocolate Stout, considering the source of the beer.

Dark as night. Minimal head formation, slight lacing. Very nice chocolate flavor. Recommended.
