Samuel Adams® Cream Stout is a true cream stout, balancing body and sweetness with the natural spiciness of grain and hand selected English hops. Our Brewers use generous portions of roasted chocolate and caramel malts as well as unroasted barley to impart a fullness of body, a roasty malt character and rich, creamy head. Its dark mahogany color make it almost as easy on the eyes as it is on the palate.

Sweet malts, treacle, oatmeal and a bit of cocoa. Dark brown with ruby edges, beige head. Sweet, roasted malts, a bit of tanginess, mineral salts, sticky finish. Nice feel, thick bodied with light carbonation. Filling, like a meal in a glass. Not bad!

12 oz bottle with a BB date of 7-2015; the ABV is listed as 4.9%. Pours black with a large, creamy and frothy tan head. Good sticky lacing gets left on the glass. Flavor: very well balanced, including the bitter-sweet dimension. Slightly sweet up front with plenty of dark roasted malts and only hints of smoke. Appealing aroma with a hint of sweet chocolate.

Looks black at first, but holding it up to a light reveals some nice deep purple-browns. Smell is of sweet cocoa, with some caramel and nice bitter coffee. The taste follows, with some bitter coffee and rye bread with a sweet finish. Solid for the style. A little too much carbonation, but nice and creamy. Easy going down, and not heavy.

The foam is not impressive, but nice tan. The scent is limited to a light malty aroma with traces of chocolate. It have relatively much carbon dioxide, and it is not common for a stout. Characterized little taste of coffee, while the chocolate malt is the dominant factor. All fine finishes of a good feeling wherein Bitter chocolate dominates. The large carbon dioxide is not destructive to this stout, actually I get used to it quickly. Samuel Adams has again surprised me positively.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied and creamy with dry, powdery finish. Flavor: chocolate, a bit of coffee, rich roasted barley, caramel with some earthy hops in the background. Overall: outstanding, definitely a great beer within the style.

MrHangover (3493) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours a black beer with a nice, dense and creamy beige head on top. Aroma is very roasty, chocolate, some coffee and cookie notes as well. Very full and the flavor is also quite roasty bittersweet. A nice hint of sweet caramel in the back finishes this beer off to the fullest. A very nice, low abv, full bodied stout with a good balance and complexity. Nice one!!
