COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our cream stout, is an indulgent beer brewed with generous amounts of English chocolate and roasted malts, as well as the traditional addition of lactose. Our stout, however, parted ways with tradition when we added over 20 pounds of Cascabel peppers to the beer. Cascabel peppers, also called Guajillo, are characterized by their earthy character and deep, smooth spiciness. The peppers were de-stemmed by hand and added to the beer post-fermentation to achieve their most potent flavor potential. They add hints of raisins and berries to the beer, as well as a subtle tingling spiciness that washes away with each gulp.

I know people love this but Im not sure it works. Interesting cream aroma mixed with smoky peppers. Very dark with no head. This drank like a milk stout with a creamy and syrupy palate. Carbonation was not specifically high. Roasted malts, some sweetness and roasted spice. There was a burn at the back of the throat. Clever but definitely not my favorite by this brewery.

On tap at Draughthouse. Typical espresso color, but the minimal head disappeared in my 15 second conversation with my fellow bar mates. Taste is middle of the pack milk stout, nice but somewhat uneventful... at first. And then the Cascabel peppers kick in, and add a layer of flavor that elevates this beyond middle of the pack. Not much carbonation, somewhat dry and just a tad smoky, but the peppers offer food pairing options that are quite promising. Would likely be great with sour cream / tomatillo / avocado based enchiladas sauces, or a burger with a strong cheese. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. Inky black pour with small quickly fading head. Nose is strong coffee, heavy roast, earth. Flavor is meat, light smoke, strong dirt, strong coffee, with a light not too dominant burn from the peppers. Not overly spicy like some pepper beer. Creamy mouthfeel.

On tap. Pours with a deep black hued body with a lasting, deep tan head. Aromas are of strong and dark chocolate, raisins, light heat, earthy, fudge and mild esters. Sipping the beer gives you a mild nasal/back of the throat burn. Flavors are of dry roast, chocolate, bready malt, plums, grainy, and some lactose character. Fuller bodied, lower carbonation.

SPDickerman (1057) - Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Growler from D&Q. Pours pitch black with a large mocha colored head. Smells sweet, hints of chocolate with a very slight tingle of spiciness. Taste has hints of sweet chocolate at the front end and then moves to a tingling spiciness at the back end. Light-to-medium bodied with a wet, smooth texture and incredibly soft mouth-carbonation, (512) Cascabel Cream Stout finishes with a bit of pepper heat in the back of the throat and a tingle on the lips.
