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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A--Pours a solid dark brown/black with two finger light brown head. Head fades slowly leaving big lacing around the glass.

S--Slight fruity hint right off the bat, but then quickly overwhelmed with chocolate and coffee. I wish it stuck around a bit longer though.

T--Coffee up front followed by a chocolate or something I want to call mocha. Finish is interesting as the little fruit hint comes back, almost like cherry chocolate cake, Very pleasing.

M--About the perfect amount of carbonation for a stout, I would say. It's decently heavy without feeling like total motor oil on the mouth. Very nice.

O--Sam Adams does some beers really well, and this is one of them. Very drinkable stout. Certainly not the most interesting stout out there, but definitely a great go to beer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Best by June 2014.
