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. medallaisla (91) - PUERTO RICO - AUG 8, 2012
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. User101024 (2) - - FEB 5, 2011 does not count
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. HalfCockedJack (16) - Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2011
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 (4905) - Arlington, 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.
