On-tap at the source itself. 12 ounce serving, on to the beer:
Dark chocolate/caramel cream color. Not much head on top of this one, and not a lot of lacing forms. The nose catches the toasted pecans. In fact, they are far and away the biggest aroma. Some pears and a touch of cocoa emerges as the beer warms. Like the aroma, its taste is dominant of the toasted pecans between 42-50F. "Hot" pears, disguising the alcohol, plays second fiddle. Astringent cocoa is light tasting. The toasted pecans leaves an astringent flavor on the palate. As the beer warms, the pecan flavor dies down while pears and plums pop out more. The alcohol become a little more noticable, but still well hidden until you feel the beer go down your throat and heat up your chest. The aftertaste lasts long of toasted pecans with a side of pears.
I wonder how those with nut allergies will react to this beer, because this is definately the "nuttiest" tasting beer I've had. Lots of pecan flavor to go around, plus a little bit of Belgian Dark Ale. 12 ounces is a good serving size for me; a 750 ml bottle would require a person to share with.

Bottle popped at 55 degrees in a wine glass. Smell was unimpressed with some mild candy, brown sugar and leather notes that weren't very strong in either direction. Poured with a tiny bit of dirty brown ring head but had a cappuccino type of swirling which was impressive. Taste had a nice Belgian dark base to it with some caramel,
Cocoa, sugars, nice depth and would love the barreled version I think.
Would easily get this again
