3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, nuts, creamy notes. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Suprisingly tasty, great balance, not too sweet and drinks easily leaving you wanting for more.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was OK for me the first time I tried it. Grew on me towards the end of the week as I finished the 6-pack. Got it really cold so tasted better than the first two I tried, but once I was half-way through the hoppy/bitter flavor stands out more. It is a sweet beer....creamy, malty, with lots of chocolate. Dark appearance, but not ultra-thick. When holding the glass up to a light, it is more of a very very dark brown versus black. Glad I tried this as I like to compare the different Brewmaster Collections by Sammy. Just offhand, I think I liked their Black Lager better. Might have to buy that again so I can review, as I only tried it once. As far as this Cream Stout goes, there are better out there in the Milk/Cream category. Don’t know if I’d buy this again....... UPDATED 9/20/11- Sampled few times since. Definitely something I will continue to get here and there. One of the better $8 a 6-pack stouts. Rating is the same...but now a staple "bread and butter" dark beer that is easy to find.

355ml bottle. Quasi black colour with mahogany glimmer, average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Sweet-ish, dark malty aroma, hints of malt lozenge, some roast. Taste is slightly roasty dark malty, some dark malty sweetness as well, malt lozenge. Nice balance of sweet and roasty-spicy maltiness.

Bottle - good size foamy head, basically black color, very roasty aroma and flavor, moderate coffee, mild chocolate, would be better with a "creamier" finish, OK overall though
