Geez! Three re-directs from "Boatswain Chocolate Stout" to get to this page. Anyway, $2/bomber at Trader Joes. Big rocky foam pour in my Nonick. Smell does have some coffee and chocolate overtones. Appearance is solid black with brown foam. Taste is pretty nice. Some cocoa on on the front, but in the back is the bitterness of coffee roast that does little more than hold the taste rating to a 6. Well, the label actually admits to 66 IBU, which is kind of high for a Stout. Had they cut the hops back and let it finish a tad sweeter, it could be a nice chocolate stout. Maybe a little low on the rating side, but Id have no trouble recommending this as a good $2 bomber!

Pours super dark brown... Light brown head... Aroma is chocolate and raisens...some nuts in there also...taste is similar... Not the smoothest stout... but jeez...for a 2 buck bomber...i will buy this again.. Pretty suprised... Was expecting crap since the other 2 trader joes beers i bought were just "drinkable"

$3 for a bomber - is this total crap?? I am happy to report 'No'! Thin tan head over a very dark black body. Aroma is chocolate with some mild burnt malt. Mouthfeel is thin, carbonation is good - taste is chocolate malt roast, chocolate bitter and a nice stout undertone. Not too shabby! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
