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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A: Very dark brown, almost black (just a hint of deep mahogany at the edges). Head was 1 finger of light brown, but it faded fairly quickly and left little lacing.

S: A mixture of aromas, appearing one after the other: Burnt sugar, muscato grapes, coffee, and faint cocoa notes.

T: Initially a strong mixture of sweet malt and acidic coffee; grape jam joins them shortly. Tangy, fruity flavors dominate for a moment, then fade to leave bitter coffee mixing with bitter chocolate, with just a hint of hops tang lingering.

M: Carbonation is fair, but the overall feel is a bit thin for a stout. Just the slightest bit of dryness in the finish.

O: Smell and taste are a mixture of coffee (more than chocolate) stout and imperial stout, although the mouth-feel is more like a medium porter. Good on its own account, and excellent for the price point.
