3.71/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

L — Pours a nice black body that allows some light to pass through the edges. Two fingers of light brown head produced with moderate pour. Some retention and lacing
S — Cacao powder, coffee, roasted barley, brown bread, hazelnut, almond skin, toasted coconut
T — Roasty chocolate and coffee flavors alongside a mildly molasses-sweet malt backbone. Hint of smoke and earthy hop
F — Nice smooth mouthfeel thanks to the oats, but feels quite watery, even given the ABV. Medium- mouthfeel, medium carb.
O — Decent offering at a very fair price of $10/4-pack of 16oz cans. Good dark daily drinker that will not wow you nor wow your wallet. Can’t get over the pricing disparity between TG’s canned offerings (some of the best value beer in distro currently in MA) and bottled offerings (some of the worst value, with the sole exception of King Sue and maybe Sosus)

Toppling Goliath Rover Truck, 5.7% ABV, 35 IBU. Pours black with a nice two finger brown head which left no lacing. Not picking up much aroma other than vague sweetness, and taste is a bit of sweet moleasses with only slight bitterness. Very nice smooth and thick mouthfeel owing to the oats, overall outstanding.

Pours a dirty brown and fair amount of transparency in the glass.

Chocolate, toffee, and caramel notes.

Molasses, caramel, and chocolate.

Medium-full bodied, medium-high carbonation, nice and smooth carbonation.

Overall, nothing to write home about, but certainly worth trying.

Poured from 16 oz can into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a nice dark brown with 1/2 inch bubbly tan head that quickly recedes.
S: Dark caramel malt, oatmeal, and grain. Hints of smoky wood and tobacco.
T: Mild dark caramel malt, soft oatmeal, smoky wood, and sweet tobacco.
M: Light body. Sweet malt notes.
D: An above average brew, but certainly not outstanding. Some interesting malt characteristics, but mostly meh. TG's hoppy beers are much better...
