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.

Pretty thin body, drinks down fast and smooth. Has a nice coffee and roast flavor combo that doesn’t overpower, just slides in and I’ve got to say pretty good beer. Particularly for the price I paid. Picked up a 12 pack sampler of Sam Adams Winter Beers on the super cheap....so sample away I will and decide if I should go purchase more.

Benzai (9783) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle @ home. Opaque brown color (although I was sitting in a semi-dark room so couldn’t tell exactly), full sized brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, sweet malts, roast, caramel, brown malts, lightly vanilla, a hint of chocolate. Taste malts, dark malts, lightly roast, vanilla, chocolate, slightly ashy bitter in the finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not exactly what I really like, but very well brewed.

Beautiful pouring stout with roast & sweet chocolate on the nose and in the taste. A fairly thin body keeps this drinkable without sacrificing flavor. Very good balance of roast, body and sweetness. One of the very few stouts I can enjoy on a warm day.

tricksta_p (1774) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2015
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.

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.

Idiosynkrasie (4668) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 3, 2015
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.

rjplumer (624) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Cream chocolate aroma. Black body with a good two finger tan soap bubbled head. Roasted chocolate malt taste. Crisp and bubbly feeling. Light creamy cocoa in the finish. Has a nice balance and not over powering.

Bottle. Black in color with a medium tan head.aroma is burnt grains with a touch of coffee. Taste is is coffee, burnt grains not as much sweetness that most cream stouts have.

csaso (1611) - Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2015
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

A good looking beer with a medium bitterness. Creamy with a subtle aftertaste. Would recommend
