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.

Aroma of chocolate and coffee with a dark near black pour. Tatse is smooth with notes of coffee, chocolate, toffee, and lactose. Awesome beer, I often over look sam adams but this beer demands some respect.

EyeAmBaldman (236) - Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Pours dark, almost black, with a frothy tan head that leaves a ton of lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and sweetness. Starts a little bitter on the palate then turns smooth and creamy with a dark chocolate tinge on the tongue. Big coffee finish with a tad of sweetness. Obviously it tastes better the warmer it gets. Decent stout.

For a beer that doesn’t have much alcohol, this sweet stout has a ton of flavor and rich complexity. It starts off on a strong note with black coffee and some hops. Then, it becomes smooth and reveals its dark chocolate middle. The finish has some touches of vanilla and, of course, cream. People typically don’t associate stouts with Samuel Adams, but the brewery’s Cream Stout is easily one of the best commonly-available dark beers.

Initial bitter toasted taste that mellows out very nicely to a sweet creamy finish on the palate....very drinkable with hints of chocolate and mocha

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.

jsmerig (1246) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2013
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 (644) - 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
