On tap at Esquire Tavern in San Antonio. Poured into a standard pint glass.
A - pours what looks like black I the glass. It it more of a deep brown when viewed with sufficient lighting. A two finger medium brown head builds and collapses on itself within a few minutes. A few rings if lacing appear as the libation is consumed.
S - nutty, toasty, malty, brownies, milk chocolate, Mars bar
T - malty chocolates and nutty - very smooth. Rich and decadent wih a slight nuttiness from the pecans that added to, but doesn't dominate the beer. Finishes with a so lean, slightly sweet maltiness with some caramel dry chocolate.
M - medium bodied and slightly creamy
D - easy to drink. It's lighter has great taste and a slight drying that makes a pint go down smooth.
Overall, a fantastic beer I'm glad to have tried. It blows the doors off other pecan beers I've had and even without it I think it would stand as a fantastic beer.
Serving type: on-tap

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
