look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Dogdish signature snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a massive three finger dark tan head that retains a while before making its way down to a 1/4 inch head. A frothy ring of lacing is left behind on the glass.

S- Sweet milk chocolate aroma with some vanilla and caramel.

T- Roasted malt, some chocolate and a slight glassy taste. Goes down easy.

M- The body's on the thinner side and there's medium-high carbonation which is a bit too much for this style IMO.

O- Kind of a letdown. Was hoping for more chocolate and less bubbles.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch light tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, cream/lactose, and a light minerally aroma. It tastes mostly just like the aroma is, like dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and some minerals. For some reason this brew really reminds me of drinking an oyster stout. And since I like those, it's a good thing in this case. But even then I have no idea why I'm picking that flavor up in this brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good brew, I know I won't have any problems finishing this 6-pack! $10.99 a sixer.

Snagged a bottle of this for around 3 bucks.

A - Defiantly not as much head as I expected just a 1/4 inch of deep mocha head that settles to just a muld lace ring. Color is fairly dark with some clarity at the base of the glass.
S - Smell is rather mild with lactose, cocoa powder, and mild roasts.
T - Very balanced actually the flavors of burnt sugars are minimal with some underlining cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, and a bit of herbal hops with a touch of roast in the finish.
M - Worst part it's not very creamy as one would expect for a cream stout but it's still drinks with a medium body so it's a pretty nice stout.

Overall I think I would pick up a four pack since this drank very well. I am surprised at the reviews but if it truly was a sweeter stout people would complain too. I got what I expected.

thanks to nhindian for the sweet extra. enjoyed from a sam adams snifter.

a - brew was a bit of a gusher and opened with a huge pop and began foaming from the bottle. it poured a watery black with a mega foamy head. settled in the glass black as night and the head hung out forever consuming at least 30% of the glass even with a careful pour.

s - smells of roast and char. some baker's chocolate and vanilla.

t - taste is really nice. baker's chocolate with vanilla almost milk stout. very yoo hoo.

m - soft and subtle, carbonation is soft prickles. really easy drinking.

o - overall a rather nice stout. milky and creamy. silky and smooth. a delight.

12 oz bottle courtesy of mgbickel pours an overcarbed dark brown color with a massive and unyielding froth of tan bubbles.

Nose is dark chocolate galore with a mild grassy hop aroma. This really does smell like a freshly opened bar of Hershey's Dark.

Lactose-y sourness mingles with a weak chocolate malt and has a bit of nuttiness. Mouthfeel blows goats - overcarbonated and flabby body. Not a huge fan of this one...I like the idea and the aroma, but the flavor does not deliver sweet, creamy chocolaty goodness. Bummer, I was really looking forward to this one.

Oompa Loompa looks pretty creamy off the tap, not too much thickness to it but some. It's quite a dark brown with some red coming in on the sides and showing through in the light. The light brown head is creamy, and it rises to over a finger but fades to half that quickly. What's left it solid and strong, leaving pretty good deposits via a ring at the top and some spotting to follow.
There's a certain sweetness to this stout, both creamy and toffee-like, but I think something about how it mixes with the hard roast gives it a hint of a burnt note to it. It's not too much but it's there. There's some wood and lots of some heartier nut, and vanilla pulls out the finish before some astringent hardwood comes into the finish, more in the flavor. There's complexity to the sweetness, with brown sugar and caramel along with the vanilla, maybe something like anise just a ghost in it. The astringent note isn't huge, but impossible not to notice.
The body is full but there's an almost spritzy impression simply from the abundance of the carbonation. There's plenty of creaminess, but as the char comes in it dries it out at the back of the throat a little.
