    I had it on tap last night in Columbus and liked it more than I expected to. I will agree that the body definitely leaves a bit to be desired, though.

    I don't often say this, but damn, that was one underwhelming beer.

    I would not recommend.

    For the longest time, Primantis had 10 or 12 taps of BMC. Just recently, they added 8 taps of crafts (at least at the location near me). Still miles away from flatheads selection.

    I agree, had this in Columbus too, at Bob's Bar Wednesday night. The taste is pretty good chocolate / vanilla / stout mix but I thought it was a little thin and a bit overcarbonated for a stout. It would be great on nitro instead.

    Finally got to try this last night on draft and was a bit let down. Very thin IMHO for a stout, it was good but I guess my expectations were a bit higher for it.

    I think it's a solid beer. Lower ABV with good flavor. Good after dinner beer if you have already had a few and want something with less alcohol.

    - One Month Later..I hear there are even some Giant Eagle's that have OLCCS now. Not so Scarce..it's Speckled here and there, but still out there. (It's) a Good one..no doubt, if you haven't had it yet.

    I bought a bottle and agree it was underwhelming. Definitely reminded me more of a vanilla porter. Don't know if my taste buds were off, but this one seemed to be missing quite a lot to be called a Chocolate Cream Stout. I didn't get much chocolate at all.

    It's definitely a porter, nothing creamy about it.
