3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours fine, medium head and almost-black translucent color, good lacing. Awesome aroma, fresh grains, quality malting, some chocolate. Loses a couple points for body, which I perceive to be a little thin, but I may not be the biggest fan of the style...Taste is fine, malty, semi-bitter and a tad sweet.
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. Description is good. Good tasting beer!

Roasted malt and slight lactose sweet aroma and flavor. Full bodied flavorful beer. Roasted malt with sligh chocholate finish and smooth lactose. Slight sweet flavor but still finishes dry. Very enjoyable. Solid Sam Adams beer. AndySnow (8311) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2017

Where: SBWF 2017.
Appearance: Dark brown colour with a tan head.
Aroma: Caramel, malt, chocolate.
Body: Light body, medium carbonation.
Flavour: Chocolate, caramel, malt, some fruit.
When I tried this for the first time, I made the mistake of comparing it to a Guinness. It's it's very own thing, with a nice coffee/chocolate vibe. It's not exactly the smoothest stout but not at all hard to drink. Loved every drop.

From Nov 2006
Poured from 12oz bottle(room temp-best by Dec 2006) a very dark brown with reddish hues with a smallish head of foam that shrank to a solid layer and then just a fine ring around the edge of the glass with lacing.
The smell has abundance of roasted and sweet malt and is quite nice.
The taste, initially, has roasted malt and some sweetness followed closely by a nice flavour of dark chocolate that gives it a bitterness that offsets and balances the sweet from this Sweet Stout very well. The finish returns to sweet malt and makes for a very nice aftertaste. Good stuff! I'll see if I can get a hold of a fresher batch and compare...
Bottom line: A *very* tasty sample of the style that I can easily recommend.
