Got a bad beer. Way over carbonated, took 15 minutes to settle down. Strong metallic money scent. Predominant in the taste as well. Seems like there is a nice bitter dark chocolate taste in there, but well hidden behind the metal. Have one more, hopefully it's better.

I guess this is an appropriate beer for NFL draft night. Hopeful anticipation followed by a let down from a usually great Cleveland brewery. The Cleveland Browns of stouts.

Tastes like Belgian dark chocolate and vanilla beans which yields great aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and caramel. With a creamy mouthfeel and bittersweet finish. Nose is roast dark malt and creamy cocoa. A little dry. Definite hazelnut and a complex finish and lactic oaty creaminess.

This beer poured out wonderfully with a very nice head and very good lacing. Pretty distributed in the smell. Almost nothing there for the noise. Taste isn't too bad. Tasty chocolate and hint of vanilla, but the aftertaste was lacking. Mouth feel was OK, a bit creamy, but nothing to write home about for a stout.

Beautiful tan three finger head atop a solid dark mahogany pour, dark as motor oil, spotty lacing in the tulip.

Dark chocolate and malt/grain,somewhat roasty too, very pleasant.

Subtle chocolate and cream flavors play out nicely with some solid roastiness, nice little hop kick at the end, clean finish.

Creamy medium mouthfeel, well carbonated, exceptionally drinkable.

A previous reviewer suggested pairing Oompa Loompa with a quality cheddar cheese, and I would concur with that fine suggestion. This is a great choco cream stout that is far less sweet and root beery than Samuel Smiths version. I highly recommend this one, Fathead's knows beer!

Huge aroma full of chocolate, vanilla, and charred wood. Chocolate is more subtle in the flavor, but it's there. More char, coffee, and a bite from the hops in a dry finish. Good flavor, great balance, more hops than most stouts.

This is one to find.
