Reviewed from notes. Served in a shaker pint.

This beer has a black body that is covered by a half finger's width of dense, brown sugar foam.

The malts come through a little roasted, with brown sugar, cocoa, and some fig.

The roasted malt really carries through the entire drink with some cocoa near the middle. The finish captures some vanilla flavors with more of the roast and brown sugar. It is not doing anything big, just solid.

Rover is incredibly creamy, but the slight astringency from the roasted malt takes away a little bit here.

Rover Truck is a fun stout with lots of flavors to explore as it warms. It feels like the roasted malts were laid on a little thick and detract from the experience of getting to all the other great flavors, luckily the astringency is very low despite this.

Serving type: on-tap
