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.
Serving type: on-tap

Sampled June 2014 from bottle in pint glass.
Appearance: Pitch black, dark color, with a nice dark tan head. The head lasted a long time.
Smell: There are roasted malt aromas, along with some strong coffee aromas. Some hops in the aroma, as well as a sweetness from the oatmeal as well. Nice combination and balance between the hops, oatmeal, and the malts.
Taste: Full-bodied with great balance of malt and hops. There is a hint of sweetness that may be due to the oats, but it has an excellent taste. The combination of strong hops and roasted malts and strong alcohol give this drink powerful flavors.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, but very smooth. Very creamy, probably due to the oatmeal.
Overall: This was the first time I tried this beer, but I love it. Overall an excellent stout. I will definitely look for this and buy it again.
