StoutOrDeath (121) - USA - MAR 16, 2001
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2003 This really shouldn't be called a stout. It has very few of the characteristics of a good stout. It's dark. That's about it. Overall, it tastes JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER SAMUEL ADAMS BEERS!! They all taste the same to me. I drank about a case of these before I decided that I really didn't like it. Maybe if you're a college kid trying to impress some chick with your sophisticated beer choice it's OK, and it is a bit cheaper than good stouts, but if you really want a good stout, pend the extra two bucks and get Guinness.
I tried it again. I wanted to heat it up and put marshmallows in it. Way too choclately. Maybe as a desert beer. Kaya161 (1142) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 23, 2001
Subtle roasted malt aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Sweet, cream finish. ....... Shazbat (100) - USA - FEB 6, 2001
I was surprised how light-tasting this was, was expecting a heavier beer.... bipolar1 (268) - Hancock, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2001

This was my favorite stout when I was relatively new to tasting different beers. (Shortly after by Bud daze.) Anyway... a good stout. A little thin in body, but smokey, roasty, and smooth. Oakes (19714) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2000
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2003 Dark burgundy colour. The aroma is creamy, almondy, and Oreo-like. Ultra sweet Vietnamese coffee, light roast on the palate. Fatty body…I have issues with that, but otherwise this is a serviceable sweet stout. mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2000
A true milk or sweet stout (not ot be confused with a Dry or Irish stout like Guinness). Not in the league of a Mackeson's, but still decent. Not real muscular, a bit on the lighter side for a stout. However, it maintains a very smooth texture, delicious chocolate/coffee/raisin aroma and flavor combined with a moderate appropriate mid-palate sweetness and a burnt/bitter follow through. A bit hard to find here in N. Fla. blatz (138) - Palm Beach Gardens, FL, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2000
One of my favorite stouts - not overly heavy - nice hints of coffee and chocolate for a slightly sweet taste as opposed to the ashy, dry taste of other stouts. Lacy head that trails down the side of the glass. Top 3 brew from Sam - only major drawback is that they don't distribute this in Florida! beerman991979 (136) - Old Town, Maine, USA - AUG 31, 2000
I really liked this beer. Had a nice creamy aroma, and a kind of burnt, cream taste to it. very smooth, goes down really well. has a mildly bitter finishing to it with a tinge of kind of a raw grain flavor.
