Had this on 2014-03-03 in Columbia, PA

A - Opaque dark brown with a 3-finger dark tan head and nice lacing.

S - Chocolate, coffee, malted milk, roasted grain. Very nice.

T - Milk and dark chocolate, char, light coffee, toffee and curdled cream, which adds a milk sugar and tart flavor. Finishes pretty clean with lingering roasted and hop bitterness.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Creamy but on the thinner side; more like a Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald than a Founder's Porter.

O - Another good brew from Fat Head's.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Poured into a Parkbrau Pils glass on 5/11/13

Dark brown in color; plum black in the glass. Two finger head deflates in short order leaving a thin film and mass of bubbles. There is some lace, but hopefully it improves (it does, but not by much).

The aroma features such fancy as acidic roast, earthy chocolate detritus and watery vanilla. The taste is a little better than the aroma but both the flavors and the feel are puffy, hollow and vapid. The vanilla is really out of place and the roast is pathetically weak - it's basically a tangy bitterness. The chocolate becomes a little more plush but not not enough to save the beer; no, if anything it adds unneeded sweetness. The carbonation is such that it would be spot-on with an excellent beer but all it does here is portray the shortcomings of Oompa Loompa.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a "stubby" 12oz. bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Dark brown/black with ruby highlights capped by a thick tan head of foam.
Aroma-Faint roasted malts
Taste-Dark chocolate, subtle vanilla bean, dark roasted malts, faint hop bite. Creamy, roasty, tasty and well-balanced. An easy-drinking stout that would be an excellent match for any BBQ dish.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Dark black/brown with a nice 2 inch creamy, foamy head and lots of lacing.

Smell - Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, lactose sugars, brown sugar, molasses. vanilla, fig and rasin. A little smoke and creamy note also.

Taste - Roasty malts, chocolate and cream are noticed at first sip. FLaovr is rather mild and light. Added sugars, cocoa and some creamy notes come out also. Not much hops is noticed, only minor flavors of rasin and plum. A little smokey and coffee flavor comes at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Rather mild, roasted malts, chocolate and molasses coats tounge, and palate. Aftertaste is mildy sweet, chocolate sweet and roasty.

Overall - Well this is rather tame and mild. The flavor is to mellow and forgetable really. Bells cream stout is 10x more flavorful and enjoyble. This is like a light version, how was this released? Its not bad but nothing special and nothing id seek out again.

Pours a deep black with ruby highlights. Thick (fat?) head of tan foam. Gorgeous lace.

Nose is roasty chocolate and some vanilla bean in the background. Very appealing.

Flavor is rich and chocolatey, with large amounts of bittersweet dark chocolate and a slight burnt finish. A fine stout, and one I'll gladly revisit.

I hate getting the oompa loompa song in my head. That's the worst thing about this nice little brew. The brew hits the glass black and lacey. Very nice looking.

The aroma is faint but pleasant. The taste is similarly under the radar. It is very drinkable. The aftertaste is a bit better. The complexity is nice and you could have a few of these and it is reasonably priced.
