Notes/Commercial Description:
Southern Pecan Nut Brown Ale is the first beer in the world, to our knowledge, made with whole roasted pecans. The pecans are used just like grain and provide a nutty characteristic and a delightful depth to the flavor profile. This beer is very lightly hopped to allow the malty, caramel, and nutty flavors shine through. The color is dark mahogany. Southern Pecan won a Bronze Medal in the 2006 World Beer Cup in the Specialty Beer category.

Sampled on tap at Bulldog's in New Orleans.

A- pours dark ruby-brown and clear with a light tan frothy head that lingers long after the pour.

S- faint sweet pecan pie, a bit of malt, brown sugar, pretty subdued overall.

T- nutty, biscuity, swey brown sugar, nearly no hops, finishes very sweet.

M- light carbonation, medium body, goes down smooth and creamy

O- an interesting concept, I would prefer it to be a bit stronger, everything seems a bit contained. This would serve as a pretty good dessert beer as it is very sweet, it overpowers the nuttiness a bit.

This beer pours an absolutely beautiful deep deep amber with a fluffy 1 1/2 finger head, leaving extensive lacing. The smell was very citrus and I did detect some nuttiness but it was buried beneath the fruit. Mouthfeel was pretty good, but nothing special. The taste was very average. I expected more nuttiness since this beer was brewed with pecans, but I mostly tasted sweet malt with grapefruit signatures and some hops. Worth a taste, but nothing too special.

Ruby red pour with dark brown hues accenting. Has some head initially but it dissipates quickly leaving just the body. Nutty aroma at first, then stale malts take over. Compared to the smell initially, this overall aroma is surprisingly poor.

Taste isn't much better as English yeast imparts its typically dry profile over the sub-par malt base. Some nuttiness creeps in to impart a small amount of alternate flavor, but nothing can save this from mediocrity. Not worth your money.

Thanks to MMAJYK for this one. Into a Fuller's nonic.

A: Pours more red than brown with an off white head that quickly fades away. Clear, no sediment. Color is a little weird but overall it doesn't look too bad.

S: Not much going on here, slight nuttiness, a bit of caramel and slightly buttery. Not bad but not a ton going on either.

T: Like the nose, some caramel and butter, slightly nutty with some citrus on the finish. Slightly toasty as well. Fairly sweet with a long lingering finish. A little lighter in flavor than I expected but not offensive.

M: Pretty thin, carbonation is on the lower side.

O: Not too bad, but a little more malt character would help this out a lot. Still an interesting beer.
