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.

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.

Keg. Black, beige head. Roasted malts, chocolate, chilies in the aroma. Taste: Roasted malts, milk chocolate, subtle peppery spice. This would be equally amazing on nitro imo.

A big beer with a big nose, This pepper infused stout provides a fantastic coffee and chocolate nose that yields to a slightly sweet and bitter front end. This is followed by a strong bitter bite and a slight heat tingle that leaves you wanting another drink. The mouth feel of this beer is wonderful, with a slightly cola palate that gives way to a smooth creamy finish.

This is a great stout. It is creamy, full-bodied, and has a great finish. The aroma gives you tons of malt, with just a hint of the chiles. The appearance is a very dark mahogany brown with a thick dark tan/light brown head. The taste is fantastic, with roasty malt and slight hint of raisin, and a little burnt ginger. Notice that i did not mention a pepper flavor; this is due to it being very subtle. This is a great stout that does not use the peppers as a gimmick. You will not notice the peppers until you have finished half to three quarters of a pint. Then the peppers will come on with a pleasant hint of capsicum build up on your tongue. The beer is creamy and full on the palate, the only way to really pick up on the chiles is to swirl it in your mouth. Overall this is a pleasing stout, with a slightly spicy finish that manages to avoid the gimmickry of being a chile beer.

Cavie (3749) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2011
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. It’s 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!

Near black with a small tan head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, and roasted sweet and hot peppers. Taste is rich chocolate and roasted malt, a little fruit, and mild heat. An excellent balance, there’s enough pepper to taste and get a touch of heat, without the overkill of peppers that brewers often use. Medium-full bodied and silky. This, like Texas Ranger, is one of the few pepper beers that make me want more than one in a sitting. Excellent.

Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, with hints of peppers. Pours a beautiful thick black with a mostly diminishing tan head and no lacing. The taste is much like the nose. Roasted malts, chocolate, and a wonderful slow burn of peppers on the back end. Full body with soft carbonation. Smooth bodied. Overall, a delightful beer. I like the way the peppers creep up on you. They are there but they don't dominate the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On Tap- Pour is dark brown with light head..Aroma is Chocolate and Malts and a hints of sweetness, Taste is Bold with chocolate and roasted malts...I didn’t catch the Spice until after 8oz of it. The spice is light and perfectly balanced that lingers in the back of the throat and palate. A perfect Stout from (512)

Draft at the gingerman Plano. Pours black with a thin tan head. The aromas are chilli peppers, coffee, chocolate. The mouthfeel is dry roasty and bitter with a spicy pepperiness in the end. Very nice beer! Cheers!

I love a good pepper beer but didn’t even realize that’s what this was when I grabbed a growlerful at Premium Draught. Rich, roasty, smoky aroma. Taste is chocolate and more chocolate with the pepper spice kick seemingly muted by the smooth creaminess. Makes me want to try adding peppers to a chocolate milkshake.
