look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours pitch black with just a little light getting through. Nice fluffy kakhi head that sticks around and leaves nice lacing. The aromas are pretty underwhelming. I can't pick up on much chocolate or vanilla. The aromas are pretty underwhelming. Lots of malts and it has grainy/mineral/metallic like aromas. It tastes much better than it smells. The dark chocolate notes come through in the flavors. It gives it a solid bitterness. There's a mild hop kick. There's a touch of black coffee in the mix as well. The vanilla practically goes unnoticed. Ehh. There's some caramel notes that linger giving it a subtle milky sweetness. Mouthfeel is pretty nice. It's medium-bodied, fluffy, creamy, moderate carbonation making it pretty smooth. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

I'm personally not feeling this one too much. Fat Heads brews some stellar beers, so maybe I had unfair expectations. This is average to me and they brew alot of insanely awesome dark beers. I don't think this one is going to grow on me either, but I am going to revisit to double check.

12oz bottle > pint glass

A - Pours deep dark black brown, very minimal head.
S - Roasted coffee beans, toffee, caramel, chocolate, sweet bready malt
T - More like a normal stout, with a hint of chocolate. I really get next to nothing from the word "cream" attached to the name. Bitter bread, yeasty malt, coffee, a little vanilla, and you gather the chocolate mid-way through. Not very smooth.
M - Suprisingly thin, nothing good really lingers through on your tongue.
O - I had high hopes for this beer, and its rather a letdown. I was expecting a chocolate bomb, but smooth silky texture, and it has neither. Its a thin standard stout with hints of chocolate and typical other stout flavors.
I really dont gather anything from the "cream" part of this beer either. This seems to have had potential, but got lost somewhere in a sea of mediocrity.

Was lucky enough to be in the store when this new release arrived and quickly purchased a 6 pack. Just reading the description of this beer, made my mouth water. Sounded like a great dessert beer. When I got home, I poured this into a snifter. The pour showed a thinner body than expected with the color being somewhere between coca cola and black. A small amount of off-white head forming on top. The smell of vanilla and dark cocoa was nice but subdued. The flavor of this stout was very nice but mild. I definitely got the bittersweet chocolate up front finishing with nice vanilla notes. The beer finished relatively clean. The mouthfeel however, was much thinner then I expected.

Overall, in my opinion, this beer is good and worth a try. It does not have the depth of chocolate that a Youngs, Sam Smith or Rogue have. It would pair well with desserts and would be a nice beer to introduce to non-craft beer drinkers. Perhaps the delicious write up set expectations too high.

I wanted to love this beer. I ran out and got some when they had it in the brewpub. The taste is minimal, slight chocolate with maybe a pinch of vanilla. What really disappointed me was the mouth feel. Very, very thin. Imo I think they should of started with an imperial stout for this beer. Drinkable but I won't seek it out again. Hippy sippy from these guys is fantastic, I think that's what I was thinking when I got it. To each his own. Cheers!

Fat Heads Brewery and Saloon
Oompa Loompa Chocolate Cream Stout

Pours a very dark, oily black color. Oompa Loompa leaves some scattered lacing from a chocolatey looking off white foam.

In the aroma, smoke, dark chocolate and a bit floral. Smells pretty inviting like a good stout should.

The chocolatey nose gives way to a charcoal like, burnt toast flavor. Dark chocolates emerge in the aftertaste, as well as a small alcohol heat. Low to moderate hop bitterness and flavor, but this beer is far from cloying, or really, being all that sweet.

Full bodied, smooth, with a high level of carbonation. Leaves behind a little bit of dark chocolate on the palate.

OVERALL: A pretty good stout, but not my favorite Fat Heads has done. I was hoping for a bit more chocolate or vanilla flavor given the name. Still, a well made beverage and I would certainly drink this again.
