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.

Damn good beer. But best in small quantities. I started feeling the lingering pepper heat after maybe 8 ounces. Overall smooth and crisp with tons of coffee, spice and creamy Notes.

Pours very dark brown with minimal head. Nice roasty malt flavor with good chile flavor and a small amount of burn on the finish. Interesting.

On tap at Petrol Station. Pours black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of roasted malt and light coffee with a nice backing creaminess. Flavor begins with a bit of sweet chocolate and roasted malts but finished slightly weak with a hint of roast and a bit of heat that lasts.

Pours black into the glass with a tan head. Aroma is slightly roasty. Flavor is chocolate and coffee with a very subtle head from the cascabel peppers on the back end. The only disappointing part of this beer is its mouthfeel. Relatively thin for a cream stout. That being said this is the first beer with peppers in it that Iíve enjoyed.

Faint scent of chocolate and creme, not much there though. I canít get much of a head on it, not sure if itís this batch. Good flavor of chocolate, not too overbearing. Good mouthful and finishes smooth.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 Tap at Ginger Man FW. Pours a very dark brown color with a reddish color that has a slight foamy tan head. Itís difficult to work up a head which is odd because I remember seeing someone with this beer last week and it was very foamy. The aroma is fairly nice. Roasted malts with chocolate cream and light coffee. Dark roasted chocolate with sweet cream and toasted notes. Easy coffee ground finish. This is fantastic! Great flavor and finish. Very nice but I think the keg is a little flat.
Update: Came back the next week and the carbonation was improved and the peppers much more pronounced. I like it even more!

On tap at the Houston Flying Saucer a few weeks back. Deep brown-black with a foamy chocolate-brown head. The beer opens medium sweet and finishes with a tingly pepper spiciness. Itís a little spicy, but definitely not too hot or overwhelming. A fun experiment and another tasty brew from (512).
