4.38/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle with a best before date of Nov 2012 purchased from the Utah system poured into a perfect pint.

Appearance: This is a pretty beer. The cap was three fingers tall and settles to one finger with loads of lacing, all on top of a very nearly black beer.

Smell: Roasted malts! General, rather than specific, coffee and chocolate notes. A dark bread sweetness mixes nicely with some earthy hop bitterness.

Taste: Roastiness and bittersweet tastes dominate. A very light dried fruit, cherry or prune, note. A bready taste reminds me of dark chewy pretzels.

Mouthfeel: The body is not too heavy, but the taste is very rich so it coats the palate well. The carbonation is on the lighter side.

Overall: This is a rich beer, heavy in flavor, but not so heavy in the body or alcohol as a big Russian Impy. This beer and style fit in a nice sweet spot, very solid offering.

Sam Adams Cream Stout pours very dark, and has a decent head and pleasing aroma. While it's a good tasting, easy drinking stout, it fails to deliver anything special in the way of mouthfeel. It's texture is a bit thin for my taste, but overall, it's a good stout if you're interested in trying out the style.
