COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I expected much better from Sam Adams. This is just way to cofee! I love stouts but this one really misses the mark!

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2003 Darkness with dark ruby shining through..head climbed up the glass but settled clumpy in the middle..
Aroma had burnt notes w/ a strong black coffee presence & a tad of chocolate cake..
Smooth creamy mouthful..
Chocolate syrup and strong coffee..roasted malts hint very lightly at metallicness, but not too much..Perfect carbination and a superb coffee aftertaste

Light roasted coffee aroma. Pours a light black with a thick creamy head. The body is somewhat robust and has a pleasant coffee bean character on the way down. Apart from the body being a bit thin, this beer is one of the best offerings Sam Adams has.

Rich smooth coffee...and that’s only from a whiff. Indeed a creamy head that dissipates into a film after a minute. Pleasantly bitter flavor with a residual bitter aftertaste. Syrupy texture on the way down, yet it is not as bloating as other stouts. Puts a smile on my face.

I have not been able to find a bottle that has tasted as good as the first one I had at a local festival. The most recent tastings have been so-so, without the creamy taste of the first.

one of the better stouts out there nice color aroma and slightly bitter with a sweet finish well worth the price

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2002
Has a dark brown slightly translucent color and has a sweet smell. Taste is creamy roasted malts and finishes with slight bitterness. Overall I am pleased with this beer, it is not the greatest beer ever, but it tastes good.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2002
Very creamy. Smooth as hell with flavors not overbearing, but subtle and apparent. Slightly roasted with a touch of bitterness. Not as good as the Bell’s Susie’s Sweet Stout, but better than most Sam Adams beers I’ve had.

RogerBurks (45) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2004 Very smooth and rich without being overbearingly heavy. Nice contract of maltiness and slight sweetness. Great lingering palate. Again, I’ve only had this in a bottle, and really would like to try it on tap.

It’s flavorful (both by taste and smell), smooth and creamy but to much of an alcohol taste for me.
