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!

A big thanks to Michael for sending this one my way. I've been wanting to try this for quite some time.

A: The pour is a dark, dark brown color with a finger's worth (or so) of tan head.

S: Plenty of roast comes through right away with a bit of bananas, which I was not expecting. The nuttiness is there and provides some interesting sweetness, along with a chocolate note.

T: A very nice roasty base for this beer. The flavor profile is sort of all over the place: sweet bananas, chocolate, pecans, coffee, and perhaps some molasses too.

M: The body is medium with a somewhat low carbonation, but it doesn't detract from the beer at all.

D: I'm very glad to have finally tried this one, and to find that it was as good as I expected. A very enjoyable beer that I would have again.

4/5  rDev -3.8%

Appearance: Opaque mahogany brown, verging on black, with a large tan head, which retains fairly well. Thin, fine-beaded lacing adorns the glass walls. (4.0/5.0)

Aroma: Strong notes of roasted barley, cold coffee, bitter cocoa, brown sugar, earth, and roasted pecans, the last well befitting its name. (4.0/5.0)

Taste: Opens with strong roasted malt flavors, very pleasant, and largely free of acidity. Cold coffee soon follows, with a compliment of bitter chocolate. Later in the taste, the rich nuttiness of the pecans is evident, as well. Late in the taste, there is a slight earthy hop presence, and a lingering note of roasted barley and cold coffee. (4.0/5.0)

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very pleasant, with just the slightest sting of carbonation. (4.0/5.0)

Drinkability/notes: Unwaveringly excellent, I wish this were bottled. If you should find yourself in Austin, Texas, (512) Pecan Porter should be on your bucket list. (4.0/5.0)

Presentation: Packaged in a 64 ounce brown glass growler purchased at HEB in Austin, Texas, on 08/26/2014. Served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager sensory glass. The growler fill was $12.00 plus tax.

On tap at Billy's (not Uncle) in Austin
A- Deep black with no ruby edges, nice 1 inch beige head. Looks nice on the pour with decent lacing.
S-Smokey smell with some dark chocolate and pecan
T-First taste is like roasted coffee without too much bitterness, there is a smoked earth feel on the back end which is a great finish, the pecan taste is there but fairly subtle, chocolate is in there as well as well as a slight caramel/malt sweetness, very nice taste with a lot of good flavors
M-Creamy and full in mouth very good carbonation for style
O-Very very drinkable and i've found myself ordering this more as it gets colder

Tried on tap at the Fort Worth Flying Saucer. Pours black with basically no head. Aroma is roasted malt along with a little bit of coffee and some pecan nuttyness. Flavor is similar to the aroma with the pecans being the star of the show. Medium mouthfeel with minimal carbonation. Very drinkable and one of the best beers I have tried from Texas.

Cask poured into a chalice at the Flying Saucer Addison. Black with a 3 finger tan head.

I'm writing from my short hand notes, so describtions will be minimal.

I was in a bar, so my already weak nose can't give a review of this.

The flavor is a wallop of carmeled malts and smoke flavor. As a Pecan fan, I was disappointed as I counldn't find the Pecans in this. I tried and tired and all I could tell that this was a pecan porter was the dryness at the end of the mouthfeel that could be from the pecans.

The mouthfeel was very thin for my likes in a porter, maybe it was a Cask that's been there too long.

Had this beer at the flying saucer in Austin.

A: Dark colored, looks right for a porter. About a finger-widths of head.
S: A slight pecan smell, as well as the usual smokey smell.
T: Not much pecan flavor in it, which is a good thing for me (not a big fan of pecans). I really enjoyed the flavor of it, a solid porter.
M: Good carbonation, what is to be expected from a Porter
O: I order it all the time when I see it on tap, refreshing for a porter.
