Fat Head’s Oompa Loompa
Fat Head’s Oompa Loompa is an American Stout brewed in small batches with Belgian dark chocolate and Madagascar vanilla beans. I felt that this was pretty average at first, a decent stout with a nice amount of chocolate. The carbonation seemed a bit too high and prickly for the flavor profile. Good, but nothing to write a review over. Then I cleaned the house for a while and forgot it was sitting on the table. Those few minutes of warming really paid off. The next sip was an explosion of rich & sweet chocolate with a dry cocoa powder bite on the finish. Tasty hints from the vanilla beans appeared where they weren’t before. The body of the beer was suddenly mellow and smooth, so easy to drink. Glad I forgot about this one, at least for a little while!
