Cream Stout a regular at Boston Beer.

Remembering that stout has its roots firmly planted in the roots of Irish tradition, Boston Beer Co. founder Jim Koch has chosen St. Patrick's Day to introduce Samuel Adams Cream Stout as a permanent member of the company's beer roster.

Samuel Adams Cream Stout appeared briefly last St. Patrick's Day, when 150 barrels were brewed in honor of the holiday that observed the most Irish of days. Since then, Koch reported, beer lovers have been clamoring for more.

Koch went on to note that his Cream Stout depends on generous additions of chocolate malt and roasted barley for its brown color and full, coffee-like flavor. Koch added that although the new brew contains 37 pounds of malt per keg, it actually contains less alcohol than most lagers (3.4 percent), and is only slightly more caloric.
