Notes/Commercial Description:
Nearly black in color, (512) Pecan Porter is made with Organic US 2-row and Crystal malts along with Baird’s Chocolate and Black malts. Its full body and malty sweetness are balanced with subtle pecan aroma and flavor from locally grown pecans. Yet another true Austin original!

Hand-bottled bomber courtesy of crellmoset split at an impromptu Charlottesville BA tasting. Many thanks to Chris, dkachur and Proteus93 - bottle split between us all. Sampled in Williamsburg Alewerks tasting glass.

Deep and dark with a solid maple walnut head and sparse lacing. Quite opaque - a little on the dark side, even for the style.

Nice sniff of roasted coffee - mild and very creamy pecans abound as well, but in subtlety. Solid hop presence - a little pine and grass together. Coffee balances out with deep dark roasted malt. Quite velvety.

Excellent balance in this - pecans provide a mild nuttiness and maybe a pinch of salt. Coffee grounds and some bittersweet chocolate notes with no hint of alcohol. Nicely done.

This is very creamy - the pecans smooth out the bitter coffee and chocolate malts. Slight slate in there with a little hop grass.

This sips very nicely. Balance doesn't show a hint of alcohol and it's very smooth and comforting. I have wanted to try this offering for quite a while so I am happy for the opportunity to check it out - no disappointment here. Must be even creamier and smoother on the tap. Well-crafted.

3.83/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Slips out a very dark, deep brown body with a thinnish, khaki-toned head.

Smell: Pecan Porter has a roasty, subtly nutty nose with sweetish touches of chocolate and cooked sugar.

Taste: A flavor that mirrors the nose, with tastes of well-roasted malt, chocolate and burnt sugars. The pecan addition is appreciable but is not the focus of the flavor, here, remaining fairly light. Small hint of raisin. Hop character and bitterness remains low. Very minimal alcohol presence. Mellow, lightly drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: While the pecans add a light, scant flavor and may leave you wanting, it still remains a nice, pleasant porter.

Serving type: bottle
