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.

Kind of burnt aroma. At first taste wasn't too creamy..or sweet. It could have been me but I wasn't that impressed. Got notes of stale coffee and burnt molasses and bittersweet chocolate. Not bad, not great...right in between. Reminds me of a lost coast 8 ball stout.

Slightly sweet aroma, with light smoke. Strong roast barley character, with some oaty sweetness. Rather solid.

Like hopsrus, this is the first Samuel Adams brew that I can recommend. While I'm not a coffee fan, the coffee flavor in this brew is just enough to be pleasing but not overwhelming. A nice alternative to the cream stouts from overseas.

Never thought I be saying this about a Sam Adams brew - this is very good. Deep brown in color, pours with little head. Great mix of Chocolate and coffee flavor. Mouthfeel is a little to carbonated for the style. Really good beer though.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2003 Good beer, but not quite my taste. Too much coffee/cappuchino. Still it was a nice beer, I just can't drink more than one.

Smells good, looks great. Too sweet. Cant drink more than a couple without being overwhelmed with sweetness. Not too bad.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 11, 2003
Opaque black body topped by a thick tan head with good lace. Coffee malt aroma. Smells like a good cappucino with a tiny amount of citrus. Slightly sweet yet bitter coffee malt flavor with a coffeelike finish. Full bodied yet smooth.

One of the better sam beers that you can get year round, and again compliments to sam for trying to make something from every style. A decent effort.

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2003
tastes very similar to a nice roated oatmeal stout. Certainly creamy and smoot. with just the right amoutn of carbonation for a stout. Creamy light brown head with a poor lacing. Not overly viscous. Very drinkabloe for a stout. Not overbearing. A nice accompanyment to a bowl of oyster stew.

beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Dark black color. Large foamy white head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. A lighter bodied stout. Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Very smooth taste. The flavors do fade quickly. A very drinkable lighter bodied and flavored stout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish in clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
