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.

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Deep dark chocolate brown with dark mahogany highlights. Tan head with good retention and lacing. Coffee, chocolate, sweet cream (malted milk), nut. Soft chocolate and coffee notes that are slightly bitter give way to a creamy mouth feel with burnt malt nutty flavors. This is followed by a sharp sting from carbonation leading to bitter herbal notes keeping the mouth lively. The mouth feel is wonderful. This a delicious cream stout with a nice sweetness balanced out by bitter notes making it more savory than sweet - excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AdolfoCC (256) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAR 7, 2017
APARIENCIA: de color marrón intenso casi negro, se observan destellos rojizos a contraluz. Corona de espuma color marfil de mediana a baja retención, de burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: presencia de las maltas tostadas es lo que más se percibe, notas a café tostado/quemado, nueces, muy ligeramente la lactosa. SABOR: de entrada esas notas a café tostado/quemado, algo terroso, nueces, muy ligeramente chocolate dulce y por ahí perdida la lactosa casi imperceptible. En el retrogusto queda un amargor ligero alto, seco y no astringente. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio bajo con sensación ligeramente untuosa en boca, baja carbonatación.

beer_rookie (611) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 10, 2017
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. It’s not real strong.

Taste is light cream coffee. Maybe some cherry. It’s 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 I’m loving that! It’s sessionable.

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