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.

I would not call this a world class beer I do like it for a cheaper session beer that has a good smooth flavor and not too high abv.

The mouthfeel is where it loses my liking. Thin and watery. It just does not have the rich thick creamy feel or flavors that I would expect for a "Cream Stout" It does have some nice chocolate milk notes but not with complexity, kind of one note.

Overall not memorable but was easy to drink. A step up from the mass mega brewers but low end for a craft beer.
