How to view "git tag" message?

When I tag a git commit using SourceTree, it allows me to enter a message so that I get an "annotated" tag. However, I cannot see how to read that message using the SourceTree GUI. All I ever seem to be able to read is the message associated with the commit.

You're right, this isn't displayed anywhere right now, that's an oversight. I'm not sure anyone's actually used that advanced tag option before!

Logged as an improvement request here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREE-987

Is there any progress on this ? I really want to see the tag message as what (features) were included in the tag.

+1 on seeing tag messages in bitbucket

+1 we need to see messages on our tags

+1 and still no progress on such simple yet valuable feature.

Come on, 6 years later and still this simple but valuable feature that you'd expect to be included is still not there? 

I've been using SourceTree for SIX years?!!! Bloomin' 'eck!!

I also don't see tag messages anywhere on the bitbucket website.

Is there any progress on this matter?

Even STASH doesn't show the "git tag" annotated messages..

Will it be addressed in coming release?

+1, Just stumbled onto this.. in local bitbucket server (new name for 'stash'), you can only view the tag names in the 'branches' dropdown, but you can't view the 'message' attached to the tag.
