This beer is light molasses color with a thin tan head and some lace. It has a wonderful aroma of spicy hop, brown sugar, light fruit. This is a deep, rich bouquet and it is very inviting.
Flavor is light and woody with good depth to the malt flavor. A light roasted flavor gently emerges toward the center and is boosted off the palate by a leathening malt sweetness mixed with a slight yeast bite. Herbal hops make a great finish, but leave a slightly soapy aftertaste.
I am unclear on weather pecan is actually an intended flavor element, ingredient, etc...I can't really taste any of that character and I am not too sorry really. Another well-known southern brewer has recently introduced a "pecan brown ale" that I find rather unpleasant, and I am thankful to be spared any artificial extract flavorings.
I wish I could rate this a little higher but there are definately some off-flavors here. Having said that, I like them, I think they play well together, and this makes for a very warm and homey take on the brown ale.
Serving type: on-tap

Had one of these 2 nights ago at O'Henry's in Metairie (New Orleans).
Light brown with tinges of red. Big foamy head (might be due to the frosted glass it was served in).
Aroma is mostly malts with hints of caramel and nuts.
Pretty tame flavour. Chewy malts with hints of nuts and some caramel.
A little watery for a brown ale, but not bad (again, could be due to the frosted glass it was served in).
Pretty decent beer. Nothing special, but worth a try.
