Boatswain chocolate stout. Pour black. Nice aroma. First taste is of chocolate but quickly turns into a weird aftertaste that last. Aggiebob (1384) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 2, 2015

Bottle. First off, I love chocolate and I love chocolate beers. This one was "Boatswain Chocolate Stout" from Trader Joe’s. Deep, dark brown almost black. No head. Aroma was burnt grains and chocolate. Taste was bitter dark chocolate, coffee and roasted grains. Nice. blackmurder (236) - Whitaker, Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2015
For the price you can’t do better. Seriously, I challenge you do find a better chocolate stout for $2.39 in the Pacific Northwest. Taste is very heavy on the chocolate, somewhat similar to Rogue’s offering, but honestly I like this one better. Carbonation is light, which is fitting for this beer. I didn’t bother to poor it, just swigged it right out the bomber. A fine beer for the price. j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle at Dad’s for the half marathon tasting. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin tan head. Roast and cocoa on the nose, soft dusty chocolate. Medium bodied, light spicy chocolate. Soft cocoa, nice maltiness. A bit papery into the finish. Slow chocolate.

Bottle as "Boatswain Chocolate Stout." Pours near black with a beige head. Chocolate sweetness, mild roasted malts, and some odd light bitterness. Not horrible. GTAEgeek (2495) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2015
22 oz. bottle, given to me by Ian. Pitch black color, with a big, dark brown head. Nose is bitter chocolate, molasses, cinnamon, and some light anise. Sweet and malty, with a reasonable bitterness. Long, bitter aftertaste. Medium to heavy body, very syrupy and sticky. This is a fair stout; lacks some complexity, and is a little too bitter. bigericsports (103) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 17, 2015
