Had as Boatswain Chocolate Stout. Comes out of the bottle a beautiful warm sable with a very thick and rather persistent tan head. Aroma has roast malt, chocolate and coffee notes with a hint of caramel. Smoky flavor builds on a roast malt core with coffee, semi-sweet chocolate and caramel plus a hint of horehound. Smooth, firm texture is quite fizzy and lively. Boatswain or bunny, it’s a good choice.

Just horrible. Had this strange flavor that I couldn't put my finger on but tasted like someone out their dirty finger in it. Sounded good but thoroughly disappointed!

11.2oz bottle, Julian date of 9/10/15. Pours brown with a large sized tan head which quickly recedes to a thin strip. Smells of roasted malt and faint chocolate; weak intensity. Tastes of cherry, vanilla, roasted malt, and some faint chocolate. Very thin body with above average carbonation. Overall, it doesn't fit the style at all and has a weak chocolate flavor contrary to its name. Not recommended.

Price Paid : 50 cents (broken/clearance bucket)
Poured into a snifter, bottle rested on ice cubes for half an hour.

It pours a dark black chocolate color, no head. 100% opaque.

Aroma is of dark cocoa, a hint of fig, krackle bar. Not a bad smell but difficult to detect.

Flavor is of chocolate, faint coffee bean, torched peanuts, and tangy, sweaty prunes. I'm not detecting too many off flavors, but then again, this is literally brain-freezing ice cold. (As it warms, I get a rush of chocolate melted to tin, and a lot of rotten/off flavors. So yes, chilling it out like a bad lager does the trick)

Feels light for the style, more like a porter but has the stout-like dryness on the finish and throughout the body.

Overall impressions : This wasn't the drain pour I was expecting it to be. As it warms up it starts to lose its beauty face and flaws start to peek through. Temperature sensitive, much like Rolling Rock or Corona. Must drink ice cold or risk potential death.

Chocolate Bunny pours an almost black color with a nice long lasting lacing head. There is a mellow cocoa powder aroma. The taste has a very cheap and granny backbone, with rotten corn like flavors, with just the tiniest amount of chocolate. Bad flavors. Overall there really isn't chocolate, and the rotten flavors really make it near undrinkable.

Look is black with a slight beige inch thick head. Smells like watery chocolate and something souring. Tastes like cardboard, corn sugar, pennies, band aid, and a little tiny bit of chocolate all mixed up in a big ole batch of water. I can't drink it.

This is not good.. It says on the bottle "is there chocolate in my beer or beer in my chocolate?".. I would argue that neither is the case.. Its a mishmash of off tastes and very thin mouthfeel.. Only saving grace is that its Easter and there's a bunny on the bottle
