I was disappointed with this stout and just did not like it, as it tasted "burnt".
The Cream Stout poured dark as mud with a short-lived head.
I could not detect much of an aroma.
As for the flavor, all I could taste was burnt malts. Actually I found this to taste like liquid smoke or a cigarette.
There was some sourness with the finish mixed in with the same soapy hop flavor as their Boston Lager.
The carbonation was middle of the road with a watery mouth feel.
I expected better from Sam.
