Draft at Bottle Bar East in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a very dark chocolate brown color that's completely opaque with a two finger mocha head that very slowly fades into a thick, lasting ring. Nice retention for the style and ABV with streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Boozy, slightly acrid aroma with subtle oak, burnt sugars and deeply roasted dark malt notes. Takes a while to open up but once it does there's a slight toothpick/dry oak character along with hints of burnt toast, bitter dark chocolate, espresso bean and a faint hint of bourbon sweetness. Somewhat bland and one dimensional being mostly boozy(not much bourbon character though) with burnt malt.
Medium body but lighter than expected with slight viscosity and a strong acrid/burnt malt flavor that lingers over the cocoa and oak barrel into a dry finish. Very bitter and toasty with strong ash, burnt coffee bean and extremely bitter dark chocolate. Not picking up any wheat flavor at all but there is some dry tooth pick/oak and a prominent spicy bourbon. More heat than flavor from the bourbon but that's somewhat expected given the small percentage of the blend. Some resinous bitter hops underneath but this beer is just too dry, acrid and burnt for many of the other flavors to stand out . Bourbon flavor isn't complex or interesting. Lacking in spicy bourbon sweetness and just tastes like strong ethanol. In addition, this beer is in desperate need of some balance to cancel out the char, burnt malt and stinging alcohol. Not very good at this stage. Will possibly improve with time as it mellows out.

Pours jet black with a tannish head and some lacing
Aromas of toffee, dark fruits, bourbon, some hops
Tastes of vanilla, raisins, dark toffee, a bitter finish from the rye, perhaps with some hops. Don't really pick up on the pecans. I do detect the 13% abv
Smooth mouthfeel, creamy, very light carbonation...definitely a sipper.
Overall, a different imperial stout, very smooth and creamy, I don't know of the pecans really added much for me. Don't know if this will show up again, but I would give it a try.

Pint at 2014 Most Arrogant Bar Bash (Barleys in Greenvillle, SC).
Pours black and opaque, with a very good tan head. Red-brown edges.
Lightly sweet; flavor builds and builds to a strong finish and aftertaste; Light boozy; low (a bit too low) carbonation; warming.
