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.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is roasted caramel malts, cocoa nibs.

Thin palate very light stout that is somewhat reminiscent of a brown ale. A bit strange mouth feel. It’s ok

thirstyrabbit (1698) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle. Dark body, medium to small creamy head. Aroma has sweet roast and something creamy indeed. Medium body, good carbonation. Sweet medium roasty taste with creamy notes and some light milk chocolate. Sweet finish with some coffee notes. A decent stout, everything is nicely done but it’s a bit generic - nothing really stands out to give this beer a memorable character.
