Bottle from Santa
Pours a solid black with a smallish tan head.Aromas heavy on the roast and coffee and light on the chocolate as advertised. Bits of caramel and dark fruit round out the nose. The flavor is a slightly sweet roasty coffee malt beverage. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet roasty mouthfeel. Decent beer, but a bit one dimensional and not nearly enough chocolate of malty sweetness to make me think of chocolate.

Seven words or less: Solid value beer, chocolate coffee not bad

A: Solid black with a one finger head.

S: Chocolate and coffee.

T: I get a little chocolate, a little coffee, and a little bitterness at the end.

M: Pleasurable, semi-creamy.

O: This is a good beer, but great value for the price. $1.99 at Trader Joe's in Columbus, Ohio. Totally worth it!

Pours a dark brown to black color with a very thick foamy 3 finger tan head that faded very slowly and left very good foamy lacing and a layer on top. Smells of cocoa powder, grains, oatmeal, caramel, vanilla and peat moss; very nice chocolate nose that smells rich. The flavor is a drop off from the nose as it's a muted version with cocoa powder, grains, oatmeal, caramel, vanilla, herbs, floral hops and peat moss; still pretty good, but very thin for a stout. Mouthfeel is very light and watery with basically no carbonation and a slightly bitter and dry cocoa powder finish. Overall it was decent, above average, but lacked any real flavor excitement.

Boatswain Chocolate stout pours a black color with a nice large tan head. There is a strong hoppy aroma with good hints of chocolate, but with a metallic note. The taste has a nice strong chocolate flavor, weak beer flavors. A bit watery, but not overly sweet. Overall it has a nice good chocolate flavors.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing opaque black in the glass. Thin brown head and thick ring around the glass with light lacing. Aroma of sweet toasted malt and light chocolate, pretty nice. Flavor is toasted malt with slight char, coffee and light chocolate with a bitter, somewhat astringent finish. Light to medium bodied. Delivers well what it promises; a cheap, decently made chocolate stout. All the flavor notes are there, but a bit thin on body and sharp and undifferentiated bitterness in the finish. A decent inexpensive light stout.
