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.

Glowing dark chestnut. Foamy tan head. Moderately heavy carbonation. Chocolate malt, barley, light caramel and burnt sugar aroma. Medium body, loaded with tangy malts. Notes of molasses, burnt caramel, chocolate and barley. Anise and espresso aftertaste. Faint creamy sweetness, although this brew is relatively dry for a sweet stout. Bitter undertow of malts is tasty. Finishes slightly less bitter. A true quaffing stout.

A very good stout, not quite smooth enough or thick enough to be a great stout, but overall quite good.

Not my favorite stout, but it does have a creamy head and is fairly smooth.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 7, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2004 Bottled. Good stout appearance, with creamy thick head; aroma nice bittersweet coffee/chocolate, though rather weak. Flavor careens between sweet and milky, and dark roastiness; good but without much punch (little hop presence). Body average, finish very smooth. Certainly better than the Spring Ale I just had, but Mr. Adams the Brewer, Patriot has certainly lost his status as one of America's best that he had when I was first getting into beer.

Very good. A touch of coffee and a touch of chocolate. Not enough stout.

Great aroma, and a prevalent chocolate/toasted malt flavor. I like the choice of hops in this Adams brew - more hops presence with a soft finish.

BuzzBeer99 (81) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 1, 2002
Itís a pretty good Sam Adamís product. I feel itís just a bit weak for my taste. Itís the standard for a Macro-Stout. I would drink it before I would drink an american standard.

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - FEB 27, 2002
A good stout for me very reminescent of Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout but maybe itís all in my head. I have yet to really figure out stouts. I think they are still a bit over my head.
