A- Black, no light comeing thru this one. 2 finger high head that is light coco in color, very creamy in appearance. Nice lacing up the sides as the head falls, there is visable lacing on the inside of the bottle, nice.
S- Malty, cocoa, bready, some slight sweetness from the bottle, more sweet coming from the glass.
T- Slightly sweet up front, then gets kinda...bland. Having a hard time tasting the malts and cocoa that is present from the bottle, slight metallic aftertaste.
M- Not quite medium, a soft slick feeling, its ok.
O- Looks good, smells decent from the bottle, not a fan of the flavor as it gets bunched up into nothing, was really hard for me to pick out the flavors that I smelled. Glad I did not pay much for this one, wont be getting it again.

A - Dark smoky color. Bit high on the froth, which comes out to a chocolate cream color.
S - Light smell, kind of bland. Can't really smell the sharp chocolate flavor.
T - No distinct flavor. No spices or chocolate taste.
M - Goes down smooth, and has a slight flavor that lingers.
O - Nothing that stands out. Light flavor and light feel.

Boatswain Chocolate Stout has a thick, soapy, beige head, a very dark-brown (essentially, black) appearance, some stray, ascending bubbles appearing on the sides of the glass, and a thin lacing sheen. The aroma is of sweet, malty, dark bread, char, a touch of chocolate, and some cream. Taste is of those elements, with a mellow bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, and Boatswain Chocolate Stout finishes semi-wet and easy drinking.

Trader Joe's Boatswain Chocolate Stout, brewed with cocoa powder. 5.4% ABV.
A: Light brown head. Utterly black, with very dark brown in the dimple, and the slightest golden brown glow underneath
S: Very dark powdered cocoa, bordering on coffee. Toasted almond? Not sure on that one.
T/MF: Very dark chocolate, with a hint of coffee.
Nothing special. Solid enough, though. Especially given the price.
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.

Poured from a 650 mL bottle into a snifter. Super dark brown bordering on black color with a golden medium brown finger of head. Head dissipated after a few moments. Little to no lacing occurred.
Rather pleasant nose with a predominately cocoa aroma with a hint of spice.
Decent mouth-feel with taste dominated by sweet chocolate notes, though some vanilla, cream soda, and coffee came through.
Overall a decent chocolate stout, definitely not horrible, with some great characteristics, though not a comprehensive package. Certainly unique and appreciable for it's good appearance and vibrant chocolate taste, but still quite a distance from perfection.
