Clear, browned bronze with a fleeting skim of buttercreme suds. Lacing is minimal.
Pecans come through prominantly on the nose, but not in a forced or artificial manner. They meld with caramel and treacle, and bready malts.
Sweet and bready as it hits the tongue. Caramel glazes everything. Pecans arrive, adding a nutty component to the sweetness. There's also a fleshy gourd-like flavor, along with a phantom of nutmeg evoking a pumpkin beer. It seems to be from the yeast, which lingera a bit pasty afterwards. It resumes with more pecan and more caramel and more sweet breadiness. There's just a glint of peppery hops on the swallow.
The carbonation is fizzy up front, but largely settles out, giving a sweet-leaning beer the sense of mouthfeel it needs, though it still feel very thin and transparent. A bit more muscle and girth would help round this out.

Pours a deep amber brownish color with nice clarity. A bit on the reddish side for a brown ale. No head at all present. The nose starts with some brown bread, oatmeal, and light nutty notes. Not sure that I would pick the nuttiness out as pecan, but there is definitely some influence from the adjuncts. Taste is watery with nutty notes and hints of grain. No hops noted in the flavor but some bitterness at the finish makes for an unpleasant finish. Mouthfeel is light and low carbonation. Overall, this beer is not well executed. It tastes like a really light watery beer with some adjunct flavors added. Would not return to this beer.
