COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adamsģ 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.

Chocalatey, roasted flavor with a very smooth feel. Nice aroma and a decent dark brown color. Not the best stout, but still very good.

This is a stout for people who donít like stout. Itís not very sweet and itís rather thin. Looks better than it drinks.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2002
Nice reddish-brown color with flavors of coffee and chocolate found underneath a nice tan head. Medium body with sweetness that isnít overpowering, but well balanced with some bitterness and a pleasing aftertaste. If your tastes runs toward beers that are more sweeter than bitter, than you should certainly try this one.

If youíre looking for a beer to increase your manliness quotient, go slumming with the Budwieser or Miller crowd; after all, they do attract hot chicks with wet T-shirts. Oh, wait, those commercials donít reflect real life? I suppose the rest of usíll just drink beer because we like it. Like most of the Samueal Adams beers, this is a top notch brew. No, this is not Samuel Smithís Oatmeal Stout (my benchmark), but is a fine macro-microbrew none the less. Not much in the aroma department, but has a decent head and a deep, rich color. Has a good coffee, chocolate, creamy taste with a subtle roast undertone, but isnít the richest beer on the block. Has a reasonable palate, but the followup can get wierd sometimes. I blame this on the heathens in my area who would turn over truckloads of Bud Light for every Samuel Adams 6 that gets sold. A solid performer in the íeasy to find supermarket pseudo-microbrewí catagory. A very drinkable concoction, all in all. D.E.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2003 This beer rocks. Very dark with a beautiful, tan head. The nose of a mocha cappacino and the creamy flavor of milk chocolate and coffee. A very well-balanced flavor with a crisp, dry finish. Not sweet. Hopped perfectly. Yum. Bartender! Draw me another.

This is a stout for people who donít particularly like stout. Itís not very sweet and itís on the thin side. Looks better than it drinks.
