Samuel Adams Cream Stout Brewed by the Boston Beer Company

Samuel Adams Cream Stout Brewed by the Boston Beer Company in Boston, MA                      

Samuel Adams Cream Stout is a true cream stout, balancing a rich roastiness with malt sweetness and a touch of English hops. The brewers begin with generous portions of chocolate and caramel malts, as well as roasted un-malted barley to create a rich and full bodied flavor and creaminess. Its dark, mahogany color makes it as easy on the eyes as it is on the palate. ABV: 4.9% ABV. IBUs:28.

Samuel Adams Cream Stout Brewed by the Boston Beer Company

This stout is sweeter and fuller bodied than a traditional Irish stout, which is drier and thinner with more roasted notes. Stouts are an extension of the 19thcentury porter style, originally called “extra stout porter beer.” Sweet or milk stouts were a creamy version that originally utilized lactose to create a mild sweetness. The lactose isn’t fermentable so it remains in the beer creating a “Milk Stout”.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Huge dense rocky tan head, this brew clings all over the inside of the glass. Proper stout black colour.

Aroma: Creamy aroma filled with roasted coffee, soft charcoal and unsweetened chocolate. A very complexly layered aroma to say the least.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Quick shot of smoothness then a creamy moderate body slides in. Soft roasted malt flavours give off faint charcoal and dark chocolate tones. Hops are in there to help balance the sweetness of the underlying pale malt. Nice bitter bite from the hops and burnt malt, roasted flavours linger lightly and broad on the tongue for a long time.

Drinkability & Notes: Easy to quaff, by far one of my top stouts as I seem to have it around a lot. Also the fresh batches seem to have a bit more of a bite to them, try and find bottle of this when it is at its ripe point where the month is notched on the side … seems to be a bit more mellow. 

Boston Beer Company Story

The Boston Beer Company began in 1984 with a generations-old family recipe that Founder and Brewer Jim Koch uncovered in his father's attic. After bringing the recipe to life in his kitchen, Jim brought it to bars in Boston with the belief that drinkers would appreciate a complex, full-flavored beer, brewed fresh in America. That beer was Samuel Adams Boston Lager(R), and it helped catalyze what became known as the American craft beer revolution.

Today, the Company brews more than 30 styles of beer. The Company uses the traditional four vessel brewing process and often takes extra steps like dry-hopping and a secondary fermentation known as krausening. It passionately pursues the development of new styles and the perfection of its classic beers by constantly searching for the world's finest ingredients. While resurrecting traditional brewing methods, the Company has earned a reputation as a pioneer in another revolution, the "extreme beer" movement, where it seeks to challenge drinkers' perceptions of what beer can be. The Boston Beer Company strives to elevate the image of American craft beer by entering festivals and competitions the world over, and in the past five years it has won more awards in international beer competitions than any other brewery in the world. The Company remains independent, and brewing quality beer remains its single focus. While Samuel Adams is the country's largest-selling craft beer, it accounts for only about one-half of one percent of the U.S. beer market. For more information, please visit
