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.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2004 wasnt impressed at all. Too weak, definitely dont think it would have hurt to put some more malt/coffee roast in here. Leaves you wanting more, and i hate beers that do that. ok im probably being too harsh. it wasnt that bad. Looks the usual, thin, clear but in this case actually a dark brown. Fizzy, light, no complexity. 2004 bottle. Much better than I remember, still a bit on the lighter side, but there is a decent roastiness there that I enjoyed, quite bitter and oily. Amp up the sweetness and they could be on to something, because as it is, this just dosent have the balance or complexity I would like.

Re-Rate 07/06/02: Deep garnet, almost brown, the head is beige and adequate, as is the lace. Nose is caramel and lightly roasted grain. Front is sweet, the top is llight to medium, the finish is dry, acidic, nicely hopped, and sweet, a ’BEGINNERS’ stout? Drinkable, but a bit light for me.

Roasty chocolate and coffee flavors, creamy head. One of my favorite sweet stouts. I like to drink this stuff.

Great thick head. Intense dark chocolate smell with a hint of coffee. Nice balance between the bitterness and creaminess. A thick, sweet stout.

Ernest (6544) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, fair lacing, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, burnt, strong coffee, dark chocolate). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, lightly acidic, unclean. Light to medium body, watery (almost creamy) texture, lively carbonation, moderately astringent. Good flavor balance and nice aroma, but there’s an unpleasant vegetal/husky aftertaste and a poor mouthfeel (very thin and quite astringent).

Very light aroma. Good body, smooth, quite strong coffee and roasted malt taste, somehow ’raw’. Palate with strong coffee character and a light sourness.
