In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from the Boston Beer Company. They are known around the world as Samuel Adams Brewery. It is their Cream Stout. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this east coast craft brewery. Let us get into this cream stout.
It has a jet black color with a tan head on this milk stout. The aroma has a chocolate to coffee notes with a slight caramel notes. The taste has a creamy to roasted chocolate to coffee notes with a nice slight caramel to wrap up the tasting notes. The aftertaste has a nice burned coffee notes. It is a sipping stout.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Harkening back to the tradition of English sweet stouts, our cream stout has a rich smooth silkiness that differs from its Irish dry stout cousin. Dark roasted malts give this brew its ebony color and deep notes of chocolate, caramel and coffee for a rich roastiness and subtly sweet finish.
Here is a description from their website (www.samueladams.com):
Inspired by the traditional English sweet stouts, this rich and creamy brew is full of deep roasted character, with a subtle sweetness & indulgently smooth finish.

Closing, it is a nice milk stout. I saw this one on the shelf and I thought why not. I never had this brew and I thought it cannot bad. This is not like all the rest of the craft stouts on the market. I was not a big fan of it but it was not that bad of a beer. It is an average to slightly below average brew. At least, the price was right on for the liquid. Some of the stouts in the market are over price and are average or below average. This is an average beer at the right price. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
