Growler sent to me from beerhunter76, reviewed the day after I received it. Poured into a Stone chalice...

A: Very dark pour, oily with no head, minimal carbonation...opaque with slight traces of red along the edges of the glass. Very dark for a porter.

S: Chocolatey sweetness and nuttiness, solid roasted malt backbone shows a light dusting of coffee aromas. Maybe a hint of dark caramel or molasses...

T: Follows the nose, and suffers a bit from lack of carbonation. There is a nice chocolatey sweetness, cocoa, some flashes of dry nuttiness, and some roasted bitter notes of coffee. Dry nutty finish. As it warms some pecan and more dark caramel emerges.

MF: Tough to gauge, obviously I'd like more carbonation...as it is, its drinkable and a bit oily/heavy/syrupy.

O: Really pleasant porter with a good flavor profile. Not life-changing, but a beer that could be a really good everyday drinker. Not too sweet, but definitely leans towards chocolate, caramel, and pecan, which is a good thing in my book.

Thanks Travis224 for the hook-up!

Opaque black color with a light brown head that leaves spots of lacing on the glass.

Awesome aroma of chocolate, a bit of stone fruit and roasted grains. The pecan is subtle but comes out a bit as the glass empties and warms a bit.

Big flavor with the malts, hops and pecan all well integrated into a pretty, round whole. Roasty, sweet in the middle with a crisp dry finish.

Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied but with some finesse - not too heavy.

A great American porter - one of the best I have had!

T - Similar, Very nutty with a coffee finish.

D - Good carbonation and a medium body.

Huge thanks to my "beer supplier" from TX, exiled. Jason sends me beer pretty much constantly. On this occasion he surprised me with a growler of 512 PP. A long time want. Thanks Jason. You are a great BA.

Growler split with like minded beer geeks. Poured into a globe.

A: Pitch black with a good amount of cascading head. No carb problems on this growler. About a half finger of mocha hued head settles on top and fades leaving soapy lace.

S: Roast black coffee, chocolate, smoked pecans and a touch of vanilla. Smells like some sort of concoction from Starbucks.

T: The flavors are smooth and seamless. Rich roast coffee melds with Sweet smoked pecans. Hints of vanilla and chocolate give this an extra layer. It actually finished with a slight hoppy kick.

M: Medium creamy body. Smooth carbonation but not flat.

O: Very tasty and well done porter. Would love to have regular access to this. Thanks again Jason.

64 oz growler split and poured into a Central Waters tulip.
No date or info available.

Thanks to Beerwolf77 for sharing this growler. Or as my soon-to-be uncle-in-law calls it despite my constant reminders, "grobbler".

A - The hiss from the screw cap signals carbonation! Short-lived cascading ends up with a low tan head with little retention / lace. The porter is almost fully black.

S - Abounding roasted chocolate malt gives this a great base! Big nuttiness compliments the chocolate roast well. A great earthy hop balance is an awesome addition.

T - Chocolate, cocoa, and heavily roasted malt blends well with the simple nuttiness in this brew,. A bit of a metallic finish though.

M - Acridly bitter and dusty-dry with a medium body and surprising crispness to the finish. Not too malty, this is a well-balanced porter.

O - Enjoyable nuttiness and chocolaty roasted malts blend well. The barrel-aged version of this has some serious potential. Good with sharp cheese too!

A - Brown beer that looks just a touch brown in the light. Brown, carbonation bubble head rose a little late. Faded to a partial cap and then a small ring.

S - Roasted malts, pecans, chocolate, and some coffee. There are some slight lactic sour notes.

T - Taste is actully quite good. Roasted malts and pecans. There is quite a bit of chocolate on this one. Flavors all meld together pretty well. Only knock I have on this is a slight lactic sourness on the end. It gets a lot stronger as the beer warms up.

M - Nice body, soft carbonation. It's a little bit thin on the end. But not bad.

O - Actually a pretty good beer, if it wasn't for the lactic sourness on the end, this would be great.

Immense thanks to lnashsig for helping me secure this long-time want. Growler wasn't perfectly sealed, but still opens with a gentle hiss. Served in my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

A vigorous pour yields a finger of soapy khaki/earth-yellow foam which slowly recedes to a thin puffy cap, partially obscuring the seal brown liquid. Basically opaque, though at certain angles there are faint tawny highlights suggesting a fine clarity. Decent retention, anaemic mottled lacing, fine glassy legs.

Pecan pie, gingerbread, spice cake, toasted oats, light-roast coffee (from malt), cracked pepper, and very light grassy hop notes in the nose. Perhaps a little chocolate (or other specialty) malt?

Mild roast malt on the palate - toasted nuts (only slowly discernable as pecans), biscotti, brown bread, and a low bitterness lead into the finish which is faintly smokey but otherwise clean and slightly dry and toasty. Delicate profile, but well put together.

Thin bodied, and just sufficient carbonation, but I suspect the growler is at fault much more than the beer.

Quite sessionable, this unique ale seems more of a Southern take on a traditional brown porter (as opposed to the more common robust porters available in the U.S.) - very pleased to get to sample this finally. Hope to re-visit it in-person at some point...

Thanks to LukeM23 for a grolwer of this beer.

Pours a dark black with a two finger head. Smells of roasted pecans, molases and Whoppers (the candy,)

Taste is superb. The pacans really come out in this. Hint of roasted coffee.

Nice thickness.

Great beer.

Growler into pint glass.

A: Dark brown/black. Near opaque. Medium brown head that leaves impressive lace, even a day after the growler was opened.

S: Coffee. Molasses? Roasted malt, some sweetness. Maybe dark fruit.

T/M: Sweet, dark fruit, some molasses, coffee-like bitterness in the finish, but no astringency. Mouthfeel is pretty thick, more stout-like, but without the bitterness and astringency I associate with non-sweet/non-Imperial stouts. Seems like this might be one of those boundary-blurring beers.

D: It's tasty. And it doesn't taste like alcohol, despite its fairly high gravity. So...tasty as a session beer, but can have undesirable side-effects of intoxication.

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.

Poured from a 64oz. growler into a Saint Arnold pint glass. Thanks to wagenvolks for the trade.

Appearance: Pours a deep black with a rocky dark tan head that has great retention.

Smell: Has nice strong aromas of chocolate, coffee, nuttiness, and roasted malts. Wonderful smell to this one.

Taste/Mouthfeel: What a great blend of malts. Starts out with big roastiness then the chocolate and coffee flavors come though before finishing with a nutty finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a meduim body.

Drinkability: This is one of the better porters I have tried. A very solid overall brew. Very easy to drink for a high abv too. No problem finishing this growler off by myself.

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.

Growler shared by womencantsail at woodshop 5.1

Poured a dark brown with a tan finger head that left good lacing sticking to the glass. Nice coffee and roasted malt aromas with chocolate and booze notes. The flavor was big malt roastiness with slight nutty and chocolate accents. The beer was medium body with a good amount of carbonation that had a sweet slight bitter creamy finish. Pretty drinkable but was a little too sweet for my palate.

Screw-top growler received via trade from SSW117. Thanks for the opportunity.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" brown head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Head is promptly down to a layer of teensy bubbles, with lace that falls at an average pace. Aroma is nutty dark malts. Taste is roasty and chocolate sweetness to start, nuttiness in the middle, and closes with a burnt bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and drinkability is very good. Interesting spin on the style.

thanks to BgThang (ratebeer user) for the trade.

(note: when i took the growler out from the box it was shipped in, it was warm. i barely touched cap, but out from the electric tape around the cap soon "growled" out a huge hiss of carbonation, and a gushing leak of foam came out too. i immediately tried to screw it on harder and rushed to the fridge. meanwhile i had to clean up a caramel/pecan mess in the basement...)

tasted in mid-may, same day of shipment.

nearly opaque black. trace rays of light make it through the edges in a red/brown tint. 2-finger brown head fades to wispy layer and creamy, foamy ring. some thin rings of splotchy lace, but tend to shrink or slide back down.

aroma: dark caramel, vanilla, hint of roast and coffee, and yes - some nutty pecans, almost "creamy" in the nose. earthy tones. not the most fragrant, even at cellar temp, but interesting and well harmonized.

taste: dark malts with caramel note, leaning more towards roast, esp in finish. but light and classically porter-like. roast and coffee tones meld with moderately earthy hop bitterness, light mash acidity, and then the nutty, creamy pecan notes with faint vanilla come in. slight hints of phenols and alcohol. roast and coffee in the aftertaste too, with lingering hints of nutty pecans.

medium body, smooth and creamy at times. some coffee astringency in the finish. mildly tingly carbonation, helping with creaminess.

drinkability takes a SLIGHT hit, in that the something in the flavor (the sweetness of the malts? the pecans?) starts to get in the way. plus, it's very filling (and high ABV) for a porter.

i'm just glad that the leaky growler didn't ruin my experience.

Thanks to screach for the chance to try this beer, first time I had heard of this brewery, always love trying new smaller breweries.

Pours from a growler dark dark brown color, virtually black, no light is able to get through, decent sized head, fades a bit fast but leaves a little bit of patchy lacing.

Smell is mostly malt but has a tinge of a metallic aroma which sets it a bit back, slight nuttiness but not as much as I would have hoped for something called Pecan Porter.

Taste is not heavy like some porters but is rather refreshing with enough stickiness for a porter, nice soft carbonation, sometimes porters can be a bit too assertive in that aspect, still has that weird metallic feel to it though but unlike in the aroma it's hardly a distraction, the nuttiness comes through a bit better but not nearly enough.

I found myself drinking a quick pint of this a bit too easily, a solid porter, if they could make it even more nuttier it'd be a real winner.

This growler was ferried to the area all the way from Austin via BGThang and his truck of beer goodness (well, following the flight to Louisville). Enjoyed at the Dilly Deli with Peanutski, the barkeep.

Appearance - pours an opaque brownish black. Maybe in brighter light there would be some hues along the edge, but not here in this setting. Initially a good half-finger of foam, the resulting thin ring of mocha leaves small dots and rivulets of lace running down the goblet.

Aroma - very roasty, a surprising burst of boozy solventy alcohol. 6.8% you say? You sure those numbers aren't backwards? This smells potent for sure.

Taste - charred malt, an expected initial hit of booze. There is a slight bit of smokiness on the front of the palate, turned prickly by the hot feel of the beer.The intense roastiness is sustained through the swallow, enhanced and dried out by some hops and tannic pecan nuttiness. As this warms some, the heat settles down and the malts and pecan reach another level, although a bit subtle. Just a better interplay between the two.

Mouthfeel - plenty smooth. The carbonation makes for a full bubbly feel in the mouth, and the weight is a little more than average.

Drinkability - if you like a smoky, nutty porter, this is far too sessionable for its own good. Thanks Ken!

Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured black with an off-white frothy head that left lots of splashy lace.

S- Big chocolate, cocoa, nutty, brown sugar, and spice notes in the aroma. Very aromatic and rich aroma.

T- Big chocolate, cocoa, nutty, roasted malt, brown sugar, and some light spice notes.

M- Very creamy, smooth, silky, medium body, and dry finish. Incredible mouthfeel and just what I want in a porter or stout.

O- This is the first beer I have had from a Texas brewery on my trip in Texas and it has set the bar very high. This porter is incredibly flavorful, unique, and silky smooth. This beer reminds me of nutella with the big cocoa notes and nutty characteristics.

Good head for a bar pour. Leaves ring lace with streaks. Near black where no light shines through.

Full of aroma--plenty of cocoa. I must admit I don't know what a roasted pecan is supposed to smell like, but I do detect a nutty aroma I would describe as walnut. Mild smokiness.

Starts mild but the burnt malts really take over. The bodied is surprisingly thin. The aftertaste is like burnt toast. Bready. High carbonation. Despite the body, it still has a chewy element to the mouthfeel.

Poured at Stubbs in Austin. Have heard great things about this brew so excited to try it. Dark brown pour with creamy mocha head. Roasty and nutty aroma, but not much going on. Slight roast up front with a lingering nuttiness. Bunch of chocolate coming through as I go. Not sure if this is on nitro or what, but very low carbonation and maybe slightly watered down (or maybe I've been having too many stouts lately). Solid beer.

Served on nitro-draught at the Crown and Anchor pub in Austin, Texas. Expectations were high given its current ratings. Reviewed from notes.

A: Disappointingly, the nitro-pour doesn't yield the bubble show you'd expect in the best nitro-draught versions of the style.

Pours a 1.5 finger wide head of beautifully creamy soft complexion. Gorgeous. Head is a khaki-tan colour with great milk-like thickness and supple creaminess. Lovely surface tension suspends the creaminess. Light gleams off the even head. Nice consistent lacing as the head recedes. Retention is excellent - about 7+ minutes. Damn, I do love a good nitro head. Cask ale doesn't come close.

Body colour is an opaque solid black - not quite a jet black. Some cola-like carbonation bubbles line the sides. No yeast particles are visible. No vibrance (it's opaque).

Sm: Cream, pecan nut, chocolate malts, dark malts, roasted grains/barley, and hazelnut. Caramelized pecan is a highlight, but boy do I wish it was more evocative and deep; it's not as prominent as it should be. A pleasant approachable aroma of mild strength.

No hop character, yeast character, or alcohol is detectable.

T: The creamy open gives way to a body comprised of your usual dark and chocolate malts, but it takes a turn for the better on the climax, whereupon pecan nut and a biteen of hazelnut come out to play. Some muddled caramelization. Hmm. Pecan should definitely be the star here, but it doesn't quite rise to the task. Balance is decent, but there's not much complexity here so it isn't much of a feat. Not gestalt. Not particularly subtle either.

Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour. Average amplitude. I do like it for what it is.

Mf: Nicely creamy, but a bit thin unfortunately. Smooth and wet - perhaps unnaturally so. It suits the flavour profile decently, but doesn't come off custom-tailored to it. Decent/adequate carbonation. Decent body. Above average execution, but there's room for improvement.

Dr: Drinkable, but it didn't deliver on the potential of the premise. I'l revisit it - hopefully on-draught - but frankly I'm disappointed. It's a pretty nice little porter, but it really needs to commit more to the pecan flavour. Go big or go home.
