Nuffield (4107) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2012
The best of the three beers that I bought in this line from Trader Joes (only skipping the American IPA). It has a pronounced chocolate note with a very tempered finish. That one over one woman at the picnic I was at, who was concerned about the bitterness of dark beers (a concern I answered by noting that there is no correlation between "dark" and "bitter"). My wife also remarked that this would go particularly well in a stout float. Could be. Good value at $1.99 if your standards in stouts arent extraordinarily high. Bottle.

JK (5946) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2012
From Trader Joes. This not a bad stout, especially for the $2 bomberr. Low carbonation and thick, rich palate. Flavor is moderately roasted grain and coffee. Flavor has some coffee and light chocolate, somewhat sweet.

Drake (13152) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Sampled from a bottle from Trader Joes Glen Allen, VA. Pours a dark brown color with a dark brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, bitter and astringent finish. The taste is rich chocolate notes, roasted malts. Medium bodied.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Black with ruby lowlights and slowly dissipating brown head. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate, dark and roasted malts and slightly sour. Somewhat on the thinner side with chocolate, sugar, cocoa powder and roasted malt. A bit of a peppery bite with a sweet artificial chocolate finish. For two something, its not bad.

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. Its not a great beer. For this type of beer Id take a Youngs Double Chocolate first, but this beer is good and the best of the four Rhinelander beers I purchased.

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, its not a bad brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. For $2.99 a bomber, I cant complain too much.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2012
Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Tons of chocolate in the aroma and flavor. This was a very tasty stout lots of chocolate and coffee flavors. Rich and thick with a subtle dry finish.

BillKismet (3924) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2012
This one was monikered Boatswain Chocolate Stout. It starts with a dark brown, veering to black, body characterized by cola carbonation and a poofy, airy chocolate head. Milk chocolate cocoa nose. The body is dryish and speckled with coffee grainyness with some smidges of chocolate elbowing their way to the table. The flavor is considerably rougher than the aroma indicates. After further aeration, the roughness melts away a bit to allow puffs a cocoa puffs to seep through.

joeneugs (6105) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 11, 2012
Im not really sure why people are hating on this beer so much. For $2 a bomber, I think its a pretty good value. It pours dark brown with a nice brown head. The aroma is pretty simple with some milk chocolate and toast. Not bad. The flavor is the same with some hard roasted malt and surprising bitterness in the finish. A bit harsh on the palate, but the flavors are pretty decent. Lots of chocolate, toast, earth and roasted malt. Id buy it again at this price.

Not a great chocolate stout. Chocolate did not come through very much almost a fake smell and flavor. (For a Chocolate stout) not a bad beer for the $2.99 for 650ml
