Poured a 650ml bottle of this into my 1L stein.
A: Pours a almost opaque dark brown-black color with a short beige head with minimal lacing.
S: Smells of barley, malts, dark sugars, hints of coffee and chocolate
T: Was really expecting more chocolate flavor, barley predominates, hints of coffee and chocolate at best.
M: Full bodied beer with medium amounts of carbonation, bit lacking on flavor
O: Overall it's alright, bit lacking in most aspects but still it wasn't bad. Could drink quite a few of these but I would keep my socks on. I'd recommend though, well, well worth the price, I only paid $2 for it from trader joes, same amount for a stinky coke from a vending machine.

S: Doesn't smell of anything. maybe because i cooled the beer too much
T: hoppy bitterness. chocolate, but closer to burned Cocoa, coffee tone. Malty. pleasant sweet after taste
M:very smooth to taste. Not bad mouth feel
Overall: not bad, but i wish there were more richness like European stouts. I would drink this over Iguanita's cappucino stout any day.

I was not expecting much of this Trader Joes beer. Boatswain is a nice balanced stout . Roasted and chocolate malt is there and not too strong. Creamy brown head with a sweet chocolate smell.
I enjoyed drinking the Boatswain beer and will buy it again. If you're looking for a knock you down malt or a hoppy beer, look else where. Boatswain surprised me as an excellent drinking stout beer at a excellent price point.
