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. MetalNHopHead (1886) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Rover Truck is in a class by itself in terms of appearance for an Oatmeal Stout. Rover Truck looks and pours like the oil you’d find in, well, a Rover Truck. Chocolate brown head. Aroma has roasted malt, bittersweet grains, cocoa, and coffee. Flavor has coffee, cream, dark chocolate, and a big black licorice note. Feel is viscous and rich. This is a dark, thick Stout, but it’s far from imposing. You can crush a couple of these in a sitting, and if you’re like me, you will. josanguapo (1618) - SPAIN - NOV 24, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2016 From Cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Reading JHTP11 Ch12. Coffee, with some milk chocolate notes later in the sip and a nice bitterness (not too american) in the end that invites you to take another sip. Low on foam. A bit more body would be appreciated wlajwl (6742) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 15, 2015
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.

Draft in Lakeland, fl. Looks and smells like a chocolate stout. Flavor is slight coffee, moderate cocoa, no bitters- quite good. Got better farther down the glass which is rare these days koleminer20 (3463) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2015
22 oz bottle from Al! The pour is a viscous oily black with a minimal ring of medium khaki head and no lacing. The aroma is roasty and oaty. There is an excellent chocolate in there and a little sweetness. The flavor is really roasty and chocolatey. There isn't much complexity there, but this is an excellent light stout. The roasted malts carry it well. The mouth feel is lighter than I wanted it to be. There is a soft carbonation, but it does come off watery. The aftertaste is lingeringly roasty with some light bitter chocolate. Good stout.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is nice roasted malt, milk chocolate, oatmeal. Appearance is black, poured viscous, light brown head. Taste is smooth, roasted malt, candy, chocolate, oats, a little light though. Mouthfeel is much the same, good but not great carbonation, a lightness in the feel, yet thick in it’s own way. Overall, it’s an impressive offering but I expected more from TG. It’s the curse of greatness. ads135 (4587) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 13, 2015
A very solid, very smooth oatmeal stout. Mildly sweet. Dense roasty finish. Aroma of licorice and wood. Picked up with Jess in Des Moines in 2015. zizzybalubba (1861) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 21, 2015
12 oz. bottle from from Rays Wine and Spirits, Wauwatosa, WI (bottled July 7, 2015). Very dark brown pour with a frothy cinnamon brown head. Rich aroma of chocolate, smoky malts, and roasted coffee. Taste features dark chocolate upfront with more subtle coffee, licorice, and smoke underneath. Finish is somewhat bitter from the roasted malt but also ends sweet which offsets some of the bitterness. An outstanding stout.
