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.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2011 Served in a tall glass at the Addison Saucer. Kind of surprising to see a stout served in the tall weizen glasses. The beer pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the chocolate with some chilis mixed in. A fairly unique aroma and quite enjoyable. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of sweet chocolate with some roasted malt, spice from the chilis and some cream notes. I also get a little bit of coffee. No hops in the aroma, this is all about the malt. Medium to thick, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice, easy drinking sweet stout with a nice added twist of peppers. Great beer.

(draught at Flying Saucer Addison) jet black pour, thick very dark brown head and great glass coating. Nose of bakers chocolate, green chiles, cocoa, and some chocolate syrup and raisin bits. Taste is quite spicy, but very smooth an subtle at the same time. Loads of milk chocolaty goodness but peppery and tingly on the palate. green chile notes abound but the predominant linger is not spicy, but smooth chocolate. A really neat beer. Not sure I needed the "biggie" they served me though.

ben4321 (4097) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Location: Draft at Ginger Man - Houston, 2/11/14

Aroma: The nose is roasted malt, coffee, and plenty of chocolate
Appearance: This one pours a dark brown color with a decent sized brown head and mild lace
Flavor: The taste is roasted coffee and chocolate upfront with a pretty peppery finish to it
Palate: This beer has a smooth and creamy feel on the mouth, with a long, spicy finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty interesting one. I didn’t realize I was getting a pepper beer, and the nose and the early part of the flavor didn’t lead me that way either, but I get plenty of pepper from the finish.
