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: APR 12, 2004 Rerate Still a damn good stout, my palate has just matured a bit - mouthfeel not quite as full as I would like and the lactic acid gets to you after a while. Original 4.3 Impressive - Best domestic stout to date. Aroma is chocolatey and thick. Flavor has a bit of a coffee undertone to it - gets a little bit bitter near the end of the glass - but otherwise holds up well. Will get this more often - will be great for the winter.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2006 Creamy, lasting head, dark ruby-brown color. Chocolate and dark dried fruit nose. Creamy, sweet chocolate malt flavors. A bit bland, but easy drinking.

Had a few bottles of this with the old man this past weekend. Nose of reasted chocolate, coffee, dried fruit and flowers. Pours a solid black with red highlights. The dense brown rocky head is fully lasting with excellent lacing. The flavor is deep and balanced starting sweet and rich with light acidity and finishing flowery and somewhat bitter. The fully soft body is chewy and finishes highly astringent. Exceptional.

Nice smokey, chocolately, coffee-like flavor. Quite sweet though. A real dessert beer. Samuel Adams makes solid, consistently enjoyable beers. I’ve yet to really be disappointed with a S Adams.

An average stout at best. Fairly good for what’s readily available, but there are many better stouts to be had. Tastes like rubber bands.

Pretty good stuff. Semi-sweet and pretty rich. There’s so many incredible breweries out there nowadays that even a beer as good as this can’t stand out.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2003 I have a soft spot for this one. I no longer buy it, because I can no longer find it fresh. If I had to bet, I would say that this one is going to be discontinued. The body is certainly light for a stout, but the flavor is fine. A ton of chocolate malt cut nicely by grain astringency and a bit of fruit. The hops work well in the nose and in the flavor profile. Probably my favorite of this brewery's offerings. Side Note: I recently found one of these in my aunt's refrigerator that she had bought for me several years ago. The expiration date was August 1996. I sampled it and was amazed to find the flavor was pretty good--no noticeable flaws or really any deterioration. Actually, the various dark grain flavors seem to have integrated more over time. Curious.

This is a nice stout. It is probably one of Sam Adams better beers. It might be a little too sweet for many though.
