Tried on tap at Crickets, 1 Mar 2012. Served in a shaker pint.

Very small dark brown head quickly dissipates. Lightly carbonated. Black, opaque. Aroma is roasty, chocolatey with a hint of some capsaicin heat. Starts very sweet and chocolatey. Heat quickly kicks in. Not overly hot but very noticeable and more than in the aroma. Chocolate, coffee and peppers intertwine throughout. Medium body, alcohol is hidden. Finish is chocolatey sweet. Long lingering peppery warming aftertaste.

Nicely done, but probably wouldn't have more than one at a sitting.

Serving type: on-tap

I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. The appearance was just perfect for me with the small but healthy amount of tan/brown frothy head developing a bit.

Unlike few other beers that I had tried recently that had chiles in them, this beer was a success. It had all of the hallmarks of things you expect from a milk stout with a hint of the chiles kicking it up a notch a little bit. The roasting flavor profile wasn't overpowering at all, and I thought it was a great balance of the syrupy flavor that milk stouts give you to go along with a little dash of chiles making it a lively experience.

This may be the best stout currently produced in Texas which used to not be saying much except in recent years a lot of great breweries have stepped up. The dried red chile taste of cascabel (actually tastes more like a pasilla negro than cascabel but no matter) is seamlessly woven into the overall taste of the beer from the aroma to the tickle of spice on the back of the throat.

Normally I enjoy chile beers but don't do more than one (I'm looking at you Wynkoop and Rogue Chipotle) however I found myself ordering multiple pints of this as it tastes as though the chile is *supposed* to be there.

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.
