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.

Pours a very dark brown, maybe even black color. Has about two finger brown head. Thick, rocky, good retention, good lacing.

Aroma is roasted barley, light coffee. Its not real strong.

Taste is light cream coffee. Maybe some cherry. Its creamy. A little smoky. A little ash.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Not as heavy as I would like or expect. Creamy like I said. That ash/smoky taste lingers, and Im loving that! Its sessionable.

Overall, I started off not really impressed by it. Im changing my mind. While it may be light in aroma and taste, its really making up for it in the palate. Yeah, I would buy it again. I would recommend it also. Good stuff!!

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a dark brown and black with a tan head and some lacing. The aroma is coffee and chocolate. The taste is chocolate, milk, coffee, and some burnt sugar. Its creamy with nice sweetness and bitterness. I havent had this one in a while. This is a solid beer.
