Roasty, almond aroma, hints of dry chocolate with a mild but chewy oatmeal body. Take a ride on the Rover Truck!

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at the brewpub. Very dark pour with a white head. Roasty chocolate and coffee aroma and taste. Full flavored, maybe a little thin on the palate. Solid.

On tap. Poured deep brown with a spotty beige head. The aroma picked up roasty black and lesser coffee malts paired with a touch of sourness.. decent stuff. The flavor found well-roasted black malt and coffee at the core, with vanilla and rolled oat accents.. tasty. Light-medium bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. a tad smoky.. well-balanced.

Sampler flight on tap at the brewpub (Decorah, IA). Pours a deeper black hue, dark and near opaque body. Blackish with ruby glowing bottom and edges. A frothy tannish head atop dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are a bit of cocoa, roast, and oatmeal sweetness. Biscuits, caramel, and cocoa presence come into the fold. Darker malts, cocoa and roastiness. Silky dark malts, some milk chocolate, oatmeal malt sweetness. Roasty, toasty, sweeter biscuits. Some lactose like feel, but I donít know if thatís actually here. Silky and sweetness pervade into the middle, some body in there. Backend is toasty, malty, and cocoa. A bit roasty, dry bakers chocolate. This is well put together. Has a firm body, still silky with some good darker malt influence, toasty and cocoa, mellow coffee. Silky sweet dark malts arenít too out of control. Solid offering.

HonkeyBra (3654) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2013
On draft at GTMW2013 preparty. Pours a rich black with a creamy looking tan head. Aroma of roast, Oreo cookie, chocolate cake and cocoa. Maybe some coffee. Flavor is bitter roasted and coffee notes parsed by sweetness from the chocolate malt. Touches of dry bakers chocolate as well. Body is indeed, as advertised, chewy, with a somewhat chalky texture, medium carbonation. Finishes dry and roasty. Overall, nice stout.
