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.

Gotta love that winter classic 12-pack! A beautiful beer that delivers. Pours nearly black with a thin tan head. Aroma is light, but there are malty notes and chocolate. Taste is superb. Malty and smooth with chocolate and cream. Finishes smooth as a glass of milk with a bit of an aftertaste of coffee and cream. Sam Adams, you’ve done it again.

Great stout has hoppy chocolate and vanilla notes, creamy and smooth finish. Good pour, solid tan head, smells a bit of coffee and leather with a hint of cashew. Aftertaste as good as initial taste, smooth from start to finish. One of my favorites.

Rod_beer (14) - DF, MEXICO - JAN 15, 2016
Dark ruby to brown colour, almost black with thick beige head. Malty aroma, toasted coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, smoke, all are very delicate smells, barely noticeable. Strong coffee flavor, bitter chocolate hints. Medium body, most on the weak side. Great beer, but I expected more of it.

joejames (413) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Bottle to shaker glass, pours deep mahogany red. One finger tan head, Some lacing and retention. Aroma roasted barley and vanilla. Taste is mainly sweet, bitterness seem to come from the dark roast rather than the hops. Medium body, moderate carbonation, mouth feel is a little thin. Tasting notes, light hints of both chocolate and coffee. Vanilla, lactose and grass. Pretty much textbook cream stout.

Overall a good offering from Samuel Adams. Their base taste is there with a hint of chocolate and a smoother palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quick3Beers (635) - 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.

Bittersweet chocolate with some coffee aroma in the background. Not to heavy or intense, it’s very smooth for a stout. Very drinkable.
