Happy Fathers Day from my son, and I am not sharing (I would, but he's not here and I'm thirsty. This is a good sucker too.
It pours a bit thick and exudes a little head. The aroma is sweet and thick with a bit of chocolate or something along with that oatmeal stoutiness.
The taste is sweet, roasty, thick and malty, with some hops too. It has a bit of creaminess too. The aftertaste is very sweet, but the burp is wonderful. This is a great stout from right in my backyard.

This is my first review on a stout so this one will be rocky.
Bottle poured into a tulip
A - Pours black and thick with a half finger reddish brown head.
S - Chocolate, toffee, coffee, and a hint of caramel.
T - Milk chocolate is the primary flavor. Midpalate turns to some toffee and caramel sweetness. It finishes with a coffee flavor that lingers on the tongue.
M - Borderline chewy. Very thick and full on the tongue with a lingering coffee flavor that's very subtly bitter.
O - I've been sitting on this bottle for a couple of months now and I am really glad I cracked it. I am not a stout fan in general but this one was very enjoyable. The mouthfeel is very big and the flavor is quite pleasant.

Had this on draft @ Local Option. I definitely underrated this beer.
Deep, dark-tan pour with a dark brown head/lacing. You taste and smell chocolate, coffee, sweetness from the oatmeal and experience a strong bodied taste from the malt backbone. What I really enjoyed was the creamy mouth-feel no doubt influenced by the oatmeal as well.
What I would really like to try is BA Boris but still hard for me to justify @$18.00 a bomber. After having Boris, though, I may find it easier to open up the wallet going forward.
