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. Pours black with brown highlights. A small tan head. Very good lacing. Aroma was very impressive with a good roasty smell. Dark fermented fruits also come to mind. The flavor is consistent with the smell although less boozy (a good thing.) Rich malt flavor with good sour lactose notes on the finish. Body is medium and to style. Roasty. Low carbonation leaves it a little flat on the finish. Texture is a little lighter than most sweet stouts, but still very acceptable. A good sweet stout. Good job Sam Adams. This is now one of my favorite from SA.

Such a perfect balance for a session able 4.9% stout. Very aromatic with roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Slight bitterness in back to round out a smooth creamy mouthfeel and taste.

Cor negra de espuma marrom persistente e cremosa. Aroma suave, um pouco citrico e café. Cremoso e pouco seco na boca, alcool levemente perceptível e sabor de malte, refrescante e com ótimo drinkability.

APPEARANCE – perfect midnight color. Creamy stout head color. NOSE - easy coffee notes, just a touch of sweetness. FLAVOR – this is where this beer disappoints! Surprisingly untasty. NOTES – great beer right up to the first sip.

Pretty good imitation of Guinness. Not enough carbonation, though, and missing the slight sweetness that makes Guinness great.

12 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is caramel malt, chocolate, coffee, and some lactose. Somewhat thin. Still, very well made and tasty.

Novice Craft Beerer here... Was hesitant for the darkness, but went for it anyway and was very glad that I did! Likes the color, great chocolaty taste, and love the smell. Nice feeling to my palate as well. Loving this beer!

12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger brown head, opaque deep brown, good lacing, head retention is average. Aroma: chocolate, light caramel, roast grain, earthy malt. Palate: medium-full body, average carbonation, creamy texture, light dry bitter finish. Taste: sweet milk chocolate and caramel into roast grain and finish is light astringency and bitterness. Overall, smooth, drinkable, very good roast grain flavor without the astringency being overpowering.

"(sidebar) i tried this beer when i was a 17 year old drinker of 40’s...and hated it. Fast forward 5,10,15 years and i realize my palate was a joke back then. this is a solid effort, full bodied (but too tight on the carbonation for the style) and quite tasty. "

12oz bottle. Pours pitch black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts with hints of chocolate and caramel. Taste of sweet creamy milk chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, and a slight coffee flavor. Overall one of the best stouts I have had.
