A: Coffee black, a 1/2 inch shady white head that lasted for a while

S: Roasted malts with hints of chocolate and caramel

T: Medium Sweetness, with very slight bitterness near the end. Creamy milk smooth for the most part

M: Mild carbonation. Slightly more than I'd have liked.

O: One of my favorite Sam Adams, and Stouts in general. Very drinkable, and a great beer for desert.

A: Coffee black with a two finger off white head that fades to a thin, wispy film. No lacing at all.

S: Caramel, espresso beans, pistachios, milk cream

T: Cream, coffee, chocolate, and a mild nutty flavor.

M: Wonderfully creamy and silky in the mouth, though thin. Wish it was a bit bigger.

O: My first milk stout. I love the interplay of the creaminess with the mildly bitter coffee character. Extremely drinkable. The cappuccino of beers.

A nice black with a off white head that eventually reduced to a small splattering across the surface. Smelled of roasted malts, some coffee and cocoa with a complimentary and balanced flavor. A nice and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, honestly, this is just one of those beers where there really isn't anything bad about it but it just doesn't really do much for me and I probably wouldn't buy again.

Rich dark brown color with creamy head.

Aroma of coffee and chocolate.

Taste is strong with coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Sweet with a good balance of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is creamy and medium-full bodied.

Overall this is better than I expected.

Bottle pours a deep mahogany color. One finger tan head that reduces itself to a thin film on top.
Aroma is chocolate and coffee malts. Decent amount of roastiness and even some hops.
Taste is similar. Semi-sweet chocolate and roasted coffee. Even some bitterness perhaps from the roasted coffee flavors as well as some hop flavors.
This beer is full bodied. Smooth, milky & creamy. The bitterness keeps the the sweetness in check and is lasting impression on the finish. Overall pretty drinkable.

Samuel Adams Cream Stout has a thick, tan, creamy head and a dark black (ruby under light) appearance, with lots of splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is very malty, wheaty, roasty, and one even gets a whiff of dark cherry. Taste is creamy, coffee, dark fruits (in the slightest way), chocolate, cream-of-wheat, and milk. Some bitterness is present, which helps with balancing. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Samuel Adams Cream Stout finishes easy drinking, mild, and pleasant. Overall, this is really nice.
