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.

Nice Stout from Sam. Coffee and chocolate flavors make for a nice rich taste. Tastes like what a Guinness Light would taste like if something that sacreligious were ever created.

Not bad... pretty good. I love thier lager so I had high expectations for this but it wasn’t quite as good as I had hoped. Nothing to turn down though. As a matter of fact, I think I’m going to the fridge to get another one. Update: This is a very tasty stout.. I believe it was too cold the first time I tried it.

Second only to (what else?) Guinness in the stouts. An excellent stout, and definitely my drinker at home (after all the only Guinness to get is on Draught). Try it.

A very enjoyable stout with chocolate undertones. Not too heavy. There’s also a good head on this creamy drink. Enjoyable on a cool, clear afternoon.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2003 Deep brownish red, almost looks hazy. Thin off white head and lace that started off fat and pocky. Nose of roasted, flaked barley, coffee and hints of chocolate. Thinnish bodied, creamy, pleasant malts, touch of caramel, flaked barley, beautiful hints of chocolate and coffee. Tangy hop finish with ample dryness. A bit astrigent but i dont care. This is pretty good. Missing that extra something, if it had it, would be a 4.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2002
Dark redbrown hue with beige head. Blue cheese, cream and chocolate in the aroma. Biscuits, hints of cream and a big bitter finish makes this an enjoyable beer.

NationWide (12) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2002
Dark like a coal mine, with a creamy brown head. Excellent flavor, with more than a hint of chocolate and coffee. Not a beer to be pounded down in large quantities, but rather enjoyed one or two bottles in an evening.

Very good, smooth beer with a nice chocolatety, full-bodied taste.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2002
A good one, but it seems a little weak. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but it seems lacking somehow. Careful, this stuff goes down like a milkshake, cuz it’s smooth.
