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.

Quick3Beers (841) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Pours a black from a bottle, aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavor similar, with that sour milk flavor of a milk stout. Thin as a milk stout always is. Meh.

growler6 (119) - Pocasset, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Bittersweet chocolate with some coffee aroma in the background. Not to heavy or intense, it’s very smooth for a stout. Very drinkable.

ajnepple (4897) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2015
On tap at DIA. Almost black in appearance with a lacy tan head. Aroma of milk sugar, shitty coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, roasted grain, lactose and light earth. Similar flavor, with a medium body and a creamy feel, a little thin for my liking. I had heard this was pretty good so I was a bit disappointed.

rondphoto (3851) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 24, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark ruby brown color, frothy beige head, cobweb lace. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt that adds light fizz on the swallow, followed by toasted chocolate as it moves to a lightly bittered finish. Outstanding example of a cream stout, full-bodied without being heavy. Highly recommended.
