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.

Served up on cask at The Ginger Man in Austin.
Basic black with a short, dark tan cap that didn't linger for long. Soapy bubbles, not unusual for a cask offering. The aroma was sweet and malty, roasty with some chocolate, lactose sweetness, and a hint of spice. Bitterness was low to moderate overall, balanced to caramel malty sweetness, more lactose and milk chocolate, roast. Peppery spice showed up in the finish. This was balanced quite nicely so that you didn't notice it much at first, but it grew a little bit as you finished your pint. By the time I was done, the peppery character was prominent, but not overpowering. I don't know that it would have been enjoyable past a single pint, but I liked the one that I had. Carbonation was appropriately low, body was medium to full. A solid offering overall.

On tap at the Petrol Station in Houston.

A: Pours nearly opaque black. A bit of brown comes in around the edges. The Petrol Station has a tendency to just fill the pint glass all the way. So little head is sitting in the glass. Though I could see from the pour a thick tan foam.
S: Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. A bit acrid and astringent. Light on the peppers.
T: A big malt bomb. Coffee, chocolate, and lots of roast. An acrid and metallic flavor as well. Some hot Chile peppers linger. This does not mesh well.
M/D: A medium to full body. Well carbonated. It was a little harder for me to put back than I would like, and I did not care to come back to this either.

A milk stout with Chile peppers is an interesting idea, but it did not work very well for me. Mix in the acrid character of the stout, and I am not a fan. I love 512, but this is a miss for me.

On-tap at Pour House.

Cascabel Cream shows a rich darkness to the body that looks like black coffee with a few drops of milk. A wispy tan head tries its best to stick around, but doesn't last long. The aroma has a dash of spiciness, but is largely comprised of a musty, earthy roastiness and black malt husks.

The flavor isn't quite what one might expect from a "Cream" stout, or a pepper-flavored stout either. Nice roasted notes and a drying finish of baker's chocolate and hops. More like an "Imperial Irish Dry Stout", perhaps? A slight hint of peppery heat does creep into the finish, but it's too little too late. Mouthfeel is thin for the style and a bit grainy with a dry finish. A rare miss for (512), but Cascabel is still very drinkable and I nevertheless enjoyed it.

This pours a delicious black with a thin head of tight bubbles.

There’s a light aroma to it, some roast but not a spicy aroma. It’s nicely sweet with some spice on it. The spice really comes out on the finish like a kiss on the cheek, becoming more present as it warms. There’s a fantastic, full mouthfeel and a great kick on the finish that gives it character and depth. Oooh, this is a good one. More, please.
