A - This one is root beer brown and slightly hazy with a small and short lived dark-beige head. Swirling brings up a centimeter or two of head, and leaves a tiny bit of wet foam on the glass. Honestly, the color is the best thing this one's got going for it. Its a pleasantly rustic rust-russet reddish brown. Hows that for alliteration?
S - Count Chocula marshmallows, peanut butter, and Worther's Original caramels. There is also a nice vanilla candle aroma that isn't at all out of place, but the aromas presented here are direly mellow and understated. This could stand to be "kicked up a notch" in the aroma department.
T - Butterscotch, caramel, liquid hazelnut coffee creamer, butter, and heavy whipping cream. You want you diacetyls? You got 'em. I can pick up the pecan flavors, but I don't know if I would have pegged them as such if I hadn't been clued in by the moniker of this brew.
M - Medium bodied, but almost feels much fuller due to a ridiculously smooth and buttery flavor. This can start to feel foamy in the mouth at times, but it's actually pretty mild and easy going with a good deal of carbonation (less would be better IMHO) and a sweet, buttery, and creamy finish.
D - If you don't like butterscotch and cow's butter diacetyl flavors then you probably wont care for this. I, however, have been known to shoot little tubs of coffee creamer whilst waiting for breakfast at any given diner, and used to eat sticks of butter like candy bars as soon as my three year old hands were able to open the 'fridge door. This is probably a love it or hate it sort of brew and I love it!

A red-orange color, it's pretty clear but for the darkness. The head, just slightly off-white, is about half a finger tall with decent retention and small patches of lacing left in moderation on the glass.
Yeast is a little strong, and it's primarily earthy with a toffee note before some nut comes in. I'm surprised there's not more toast, but there is caramel malt and a little biscuit. More sweetness of brown sugar kicks into the middle. It ends with a little graininess and a note of tea leaf that's the strongest indication this beer leans English at all.
While following very closely to the aroma, the flavor is a little drier and offers some notes of cocoa. It doesn't lose depth or get a little thin in taste at the end as it winds up doing in the aroma. I can understand with the different sweet and nutty flavors in this beer why some judges would like it in the undoubtedly thin specialty category in 2006, but was its consideration as an English brown glossed over? It could easily be an American brown.
The dry and powdery aspects build up a little to ease off the strong sweetness in the middle of every sip and makes for a much more pleasurable finish than it seems destined to have in its medium body.

I must say that you have to try the tap if you are going to rate this beer. I had bottled first, and was disappointed. It seemed like another lazy Porter at best. I was reluctant to try it at a Gulfport pizza joint but since it was on tap there, I went for it. It seems to be popular in the area and I wanted to give it proper test. And was I pleased! This beer is so good on tap. The pecan really shines in this nutty ale. Another party at the table said they had had it before and was un-impressed, so I told them my experience. They decided to try it on tap here and they agreed that it was decisively better.
