Bottle at home. Pours a medium dark brown, nice off white head. Aroma is toasted malts, light cocoa and faint caramel. Taste is robust roasted malt flavors, a bit nutty and faint cocoa. Very mild sweetness that transitions to a mild bitterness. Nice flavorful, low boost beer. Would pair nicely with quite a bit. Wish this had some more distro down in TX!

Bomber from the ???. Poured a syrupy super dark brown, minimal tight foamy head of deep beige. Aroma chocolate syrup, tree bark, nut shell, brown paper bag. Flavor is a bit more chocolate syrupy than the aroma, nut shell, roasty, well done toast. Medium body but the carbonation is a bit soft.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa powder, slight coffee into a bit of caramel, toffee, slight earth into a bit of red fruits, slight yeast. Taste was a mix of cocoa, earth, some almost ash into some earth, slight spice, touch of fruit, finishing more deeply cocoa, almost roasty. Pretty nice, like others have mentioned it borders on porter notes.

Pint glass in tap. Decorah.
Pours dark brown, basically black. Small head with lacing.
Aroma is choclate malts, dark fruits, coffee, subtle bittering hops.
Taste of dark chocolate bitterness. Some sweetness as well. Fairly well balanced.
Body is medium. Light carbonation, smooth texture. Medium finish.
Solid beer from TG, really well made for the style, but not a favorite.
