Introducing…(512) Cascabel Cream Stout – Available NOW! by Kevin - Owner/Brewer

Our latest seasonal offering is a Texas twist on a traditional English style. We call it Cascabel Cream Stout.

Cream stouts, sometimes referred to as Milk stouts or Sweet stouts, have a long history in England, though few imported examples are available today in the U.S. Originally touted for their nutritional value, Cream stouts were marketed to lactating mothers for their health benefits as a result of the addition of lactose, or milk sugar. Lactose is a form of sugar that remains unfermentable to standard beer yeasts, even after boiling, thus finished beer retains some sweetness and body that would otherwise be consumed by the yeast. Though modern examples no longer make bold claims about their nutritional value, they, like their historical predecessors, are rich, creamy, delicious beers that toe the line between dessert and beer.

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.

We hope you’re as excited to try the Cascabel Cream Stout as we were to brew it. Look for it at beer bars across Texas starting next week.

Left Hand Brew Milk Stout is my favorite beer, and pretty much the only thing I would pass up a (512) brew for… But now my favorite brewery is making a cream/milk stout??!?! I can’t wait. Any idea which local beer bar might be having it first?

The Whip-In had it on tap as of Saturday — it was tremendous.

Had this at Queen Vic in Houston. Amazing! Unlike any beer I’ve ever had. I couldn’t get over how nice it balanced being smooth and sweet while spicy at the same time. I mean there’s a real spiciness to this beer! Well done. Might go get another one now while I’m thinking about it…

I LOVE this beer! I definitely prefer the stouts, doppelbocks, and porters, and this one is awesome! I’m going to miss it when it’s gone.

Comment by Richard

Tradtional cream stout at the start with a very slight burn on the finish. I must say that I wasn’t very interested when I first heard about it, but now that I’ve tried it, I really like it. Opal’s Penn Field has it right now.
