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.

Coffee, chocolate, and nuts in the aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet with chocolate and caramel, with some roast coffee bitterness in the finish. A nice holiday beer that you can share with your non-beer-nerd friends.

Pours near black with a sight reddish amber hue. Aroma of coffee, smoke and chocolate. Taste is sweet and chocolatey with a smokey bitter finish that balances out the sweet very nicely. The mouthfeel is thick and robust. Overall a good sweet stout.

Keg at Stout NYC, as Sam Adams Nitro Stout - which having asked about on the forum only one person (cheers Keanex) came back to me and could only offer this as the beer so thats what I’ve gone with, 23/11/13. Mid black with a good sized light tan head. Nose is sweet brown sugars, cocoa, dark toffee fudge. Taste comprises chocolate, sweet notes, dark malt, light roast, brown sugar, toffee fudge. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, smooth on the palate, dry finale with light roas. Ok.

ROBC3366 (518) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Aroma is strong in coffee, nutty, roasty, and some chocolate and caramel notes. A bit smoky too. Appearance is the darkest of browns/black, very thick, no transparency. Head is light brown, medium froth. Taste is quite similar to aroma, coffeeish, chocolate, nutty. Medium bitter. Delicious. Body is full, yet some carbonation. Thick texture with long finish

Palidor19 (2919) - Brandon, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2013
This beer has an emphasis. on two main flavor; chocolate and cola. the body is very soft with a slight fizz and the end. a nice balance malt that is not overpowering, a minor acidic ting at the end. this is a great winter session beer.

Frothmeister (544) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours black with a cocoa coloured head. Smells fantastic, graham cracker, caramel, molasses, sponge toffee, and cocoa which almost comes together with a chocolate cream pie sort of aroma. Lighter bodied for a stout, but still very flavourful. Molasses, black licorice, espresso, earthy mineral notes, with a light citrus tang, and mild sweetness. This is one seriously sessionable stout. Thumbs up!

b3shine (5154) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle to pint. Looks good; a dark cola with thin beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and roast. Tastes like it smells with some chocolate and lig sweetness. Average on the palate. Not bad.

redneckpride (11) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Looks like cola coming out of the bottle. Definitely heavy, which is an aquired taste in and of itself, but if said taste is aquired, you’ll find this surprisingly drinkable and refreshing. Perfect with a fat grilled burger! It enhances the flavors of the darkest of savory foods.
