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

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 L’apothéose de ce qu’un stout devrait être. Structure en bouche aussi décadente que possible pour 6.6%, des saveurs aussi variées que complémentaires et une finale glorieuse et doucement astringente. Dans la même lignée que HF Everett et Bellwoods Lost River, peu importe l’appellation ou le style qu’on veut bien leur donner.

Aroma is dark/roasted malts and mild nuttiness. The flavor is dark/roasted malts, light fruit, mild sweetness, a hint of nuttiness and a bitter/acidic finish. Simple but very effective.

Had it on tap once. Drinking from the bottle now. Medium dark body with minimal head. Chocolate oat aroma. Smooth velvety mouthfeel. Lots of cocoa taste with some roasted notes. Yummy.

Tap at TG. Pour is deep dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma and flavor are full of roasted malt, light chocolate notes, and faint coffee notes. The body is so much more full than 6.6%. A very rich and fulfilling beer. Loved it.

Poured from a growler into a snifter glass. Aroma- Chocolate, oak/wood, and nuts. Appearance- Dark brown, coffee like head. Great retention with a nice lacing at the top. T - Similar to the nose but slightly sweeter. Some toffee and brown sugar hints. Subtle coffee notes that mix well with the chocolate/cocoa. A nice roasty malt flavor with a strong roasted nuttiness. Well balanced sweet and bitterness. Palate - Medium body with some carbonation. Very smooth, creamy, and sweet. Good mouthfeel that you expect from an oatmeal stout. Overall- Well balanced stout with a very smooth sweet finish. The malts and hops blend well together. A nice balance between sweet and bitter with a nice chocolate milk.

Flavor: roasted grains, chocolate and coffee, somewhat earthy, slightly sweet with some bitterness to balance, nice dry finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. Solid brew.

Tap. Pours opaque black with a medium brown head and good lacing. Aroma is strong espresso, dark roasted malt, and notes of whiskey. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet with a light coffee bitterness. Light to medium body, very nice beer.

22oz bottle from pepsican pours a mostly opaque black with some thin white head. Nose has plenty of molasses, some cola, some chocolate, a little brown sugar, some toast, plenty of cookie. Flavor has more cookie, Oreo, some cheap brown sugar, toast, mild coffee, molasses chew. Full finish but also dry. Solid.
