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!

Big thanks to LukeM23 for the trade.

Pours a dark, opaque brown with coffee brown highlights. Has a dark tan had that starts quite thin, and dissipates into a nice ring that last for the duration and has great lacing.

Strong aroma of dark roasted malts and coffee. Hints of bitter chocolate and a slight touch of roasted nuts.

Taste of roasted malts predominates, with undertones of dark chocolate and coffee. There is an ever present hoppy bitterness that's a bit weak at the start, but really picks up at the finish. The roasted pecan flavor really comes through in the aftertaste. It's not terribly strong, but it's very pleasant and the flavor lingers on the palate.

Lighter in body for a beer of this style. Great carbonation level. Very smooth, but a little thin. Dried out the pallet less than any porter I've ever come across, which makes up for the thinness and then some.

Before I knew it, I had sucked down the whole growler, so I'd say the drinkability of this one is high.

Serving type: growler
