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.

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 (559) - 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 (5452) - Indiana, 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.

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.

Pyrmir (3352) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2013
Sample from bottle @sbwf13. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma a bit roasted, chocolate and small coffee notes. Taste with roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate. A bit thin in my humble opinion

It has sort of a hard taste. You get the flavor in the form of the after taste. Still a good brew. I ate a brownie when I had one and it was perfect.

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.

This beer was a delight. It has an earthy, full bodied feel with just the right amount of bubbles.
