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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

The first time I tried this, I hated it. Didn't even finish it. Over a year later (almost 2) I gave it another go, and this time loved it. I don't know what changed. It doesn't have the aroma or head of Guinness, and is actually more brown than ruby red (like Guinness). However, I don't think this is tryig to be Guinness. Its good in its own right, with a very unique flavor among stouts. Hard to explain, but try it for yourself, if you like stouts you won't be dissapointed.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2003 dark brown colour, few foam, roasted, black chocolate aroma, prune and alcohol, sweet and smooth, oily, long dry and bitter chocolate finish - delicious and balanced
