Big thanks again for the hand bottled gift I received of this one. One of the first to come off the line, this unlabelled twelve ounce bottle arrived on my doorstep last week. I immediately through one in the fridge and got to work. Served cold and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 11/23/2008.

The pour was very nice, deep, dark brown in color with a rich look to it. Some light hints of a reddish note poking through on the sides and the bottom of the glass. Nice touches of fine off white head forming on the top, nothing extreme though, maybe a half an inch or so. This faded down gracefully and left behind just a touch of lace on the edges of the glass.

The aroma was very nice and quite sweet as well. Rich notes of caramel, nuts, and a hint of brown sugar all playing very nicely. As it warmed up some hints of an earthy hop note started to take shape, as well as a nice underlying layer of grain. The flavor was just really top notch here. Rich and vibrant and amazingly complex. Starting with a wave of smooth caramel malts, evolving with an earthy hop tone that offered a nice balance to the sweet notes that had started it all. This was mellow and super smooth. Easing back down the original path, a nice touch of pecan then rolled across the tongue, mellowing out the finish and providing that last gasp of sweetness before the flavor finished out. Easily session able, I went through this one far too quickly, and the only factor I could come up with to say negatively about this is the feel was a touch under carbonated, but other then that, it was as solid as they come.

Overall this was an excellent beer, something I would love to try on tap and will be certainly looking for in the future. I would have to say this was darn interesting and definitely worthy of another look.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with one of the darkest tan heads that I have ever seen sitting atop the obsidian liquid; while the head fades to a ringlet, it leaves some splashy lace behind

Smell: Roasty, unsweetened chocolate, nutskin bitterness and a touch of molasses

Taste: Roasty and fruity, up front, with a slightly sour element that is not inappropriate to the stylel; chocolate and dark fruit flavors fill out the palate, with a nutskin bitterness leading up to mid-palate; after the swallow, the pecan flavor becomes apparent and builds through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: I really enjoyed the way the pecan flavor added a nutty dimension to this beer - a boldy flavored porter with a balancing bitterness

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.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Light bodied and interesting without being overly flavorful. Near black in the pint shaker with a modest head and some lacing along the glass.

Dark caramel flavor, a touch of bitter chocolate, and something like nuts. I guess it's the pecans, though the flavor doesn't jump out at you. I wouldn't describe it as buttery, but there is a hint of that acetyl taste. Some bitterness along with a distinct grainy flavor. A walnut shell bitterish taste along with a slight sourness of the burnt barley sort. Not much of a fragrance.

An okay quaff, and more interesting than a lot of Porters. On tap at the Double Horn brewpub in Marble Falls.

Had a pint at the Gingerman in Austin. Man, this was a heck of a porter. Upfront I got a blast of sweetened coffee with chocolate liqueur and caramel underneath. It was both satisfying to have after dinner, but didn't fill me up. After the Live Oak Hefe, this is the next must-try beer in Austin.

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.

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.

Enjoyed at The Ginger Man in Austin.
Looked black, but the lights were dim so there could have been a little colour. Dense tan cap, good head retention, some spotty lacing. Tons of roast in the aroma, nutty, milk chocolate, caramel and brown sugar. Roqst and bittersweet chocolate up front in the flavour, some fruitiness mid-palate, caramel sweetness, nutty, rich maltiness. Medium to full bodied with lowish carbonation, creamy texture and a bit os astringent dryness from the dark malts. Pretty good overall - I enjoyed my pint quite a bit.

Pours ½ finger of tan head. Color is a dark caramel brown, nearing black.

Aroma: Roasted chocolate, caramel, coffee, nuts, earthy hops. Nice.

Taste: Earthy hops, roasted nuts, caramel, chocolate, and coffee. Just like the nose, except here it has some vanilla. Good.

Mouthfeel: Roasted, smooth, and creamy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends roasted.

Overall, a pretty awesome porter with some great flavors. Good drinkability. One of the better Texas beers I have had on my trip.

Served on tap at The Holy Grail Pub in Plano, TX.

A: Pours a bit shy of black but an extremely dark brown with subtle hints of amber at the edges when you hold it up to the light. Half finger tall dark tan head with great head retention. Also, significant lacing can be observed,

S: Sweet roasted malts with hints of burnt coffee and pecans.

T: Very nicely balanced between the sweetness and the bitterness. Starts with sweet roasted malts, follows with hints of pecan, and finishes with a burnt coffee bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with low to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Very enjoyable and very easy to drink - I could easily have had another couple of these and would very much like to on my next visit to Texas. A great beer for the fall to winter - the tastes remind me of sitting around a fireplace with family at the holidays.

Served in a pint glass an opaque black color with a fine-bubbled dark tan head. Nice retention and collar with just a few hints of lace. A good looking brew.

Smells mainly of roasty malts and some west coast hops. Milk chocolate and cocoa are also there. Fresh and sweet. I dont get much, if any pecan on the aroma.

Taste is a bit thin and has a hint of sourness, is there a bit of sauer malt in here? Not tasting much pecan in here either, has a bit of a nutty tannin-like feel to it though. It's an ok beer, but it did not live up to the hype for me, but I would be willing to try it again to see if my feelings change.

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!

On cask at Hay Merchant in Houston. Review from notes.

A: Pours pitch black, pretty much opaque. A two finger whispy, tan head forms with excellent retention. Rings of sticky spiderweb lace is left. This is a looker.
S: A soft nutty aroma. Roasted malt, milk chocolate, cream coffee. A light sweetness of vanilla in the nose. Excellent.
T: Follows the nose. Nutty, roasted pecans, light roasted malt. Some smoke. Milk chocolate, toffee, coffee. Really well balanced. Love it.
M/D: A medium to full body. Velvety smooth and soft. The perfect amount of carbonation for a cask. This is like silk. So easy to drink. I have lost count how many times I have enjoyed this on cask.

One of the true treats in Texas is enjoying this on cask. Near perfect. I can not recommend this enough.

I had this on tap at the Flying Saucer in Houston. It was dark brown-black and opaque, with a thin tan head that laces big-time, thick sheets on the glass. It struck me as a rich smelling stout, not so strong on pecans (until tasted), more chocolate and roasted malts (significant amounts of chocolate).

On tasting I get lots of cocoa flavors, very rich, with a little pecan in the aftertaste that I sure wouldn't guess at without first knowing it was there. It's more sweet than bitter. It's very thick feeling for a porter, this is a serious drink and I like it.

Draft to Pint

@TheGingerMan
Plano, TX

App- Black like a stout which was a welcome suprise. The beer itself pours with a nice head for a porter was again a good suprise. Light khaki with some spotted cling.

Smell- Really a nice aromatic porter. The base malts are hidden and the pecan really comes through with a bit of cream behind it. The malts are hidden but still there is more of a correct statement.

Taste- A semi-layered porter. Had a ton of upfront pecans with some creamy malty notes that came off a bit more than the 8%. Was a tasty porter and nicely balanced without being cloying.

Mouth- A bit of a light body with a light-medium carbonation. A bit smooth with a lot of residual pecan flavor.

Drink- I really enjoyed this one. Much better than the base beer was. I'd like a couple bottles of this.

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.

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!

I was excited to try this on cask at Opals. It was served in a standard shaker pint and the beer is a dark, dark brown with a tan priest's collar.

The aroma is of toasted malts, brown sugar and a hint of pecans.

Served at correct cellar temp, the beer is slightly woody with mild roasted malts, a hint of coffee, and those pecans in the background. I wish they would up the nut notes a bit.

The mouth is silky smooth but it thins a bit in the end. Drinkability suffers a bit from the wood notes. Perhaps a cask at the end of its life?

Glad I got to try this one. It's decent, but a bit of tweaking would push it into the excellent category.

On-tap at Opal Devine's Freehouse. Celebrating the signing of my gf's and my lease for an apartment in Austin!

Poured a beautifully opaque, seal brown body. Glimmers of ruby red squeeze in around the edges. Excellent retention on the finger's width of custard-colored head; thick sheets of brown lacing left behind on most of the glass. Aroma is rife with roasted coffee and chocolate malts backed by earthy, floral hops and a rich presence of yeasty esters.

Taste is not as flavorful or complex as the aroma had suggested, but still quite good, with dark chocolate and a nutty caramel sweetness. Dank, dark fruits drop out of the middle before getting pushed aside by soft chocolate and hoppy notes. A touch of coffee bitterness lingers in the finish. The full-body provides a creamy mouthfeel, and the light carbonation makes for an easy-drinking porter--more stout like in it's consistency, to be honest, but I don't mind. Thoroughly enjoyable brew, and one I look forward to having again.

Bottle courtesy of Strelnikov - thanks a bunch for the great opportunity!! Split w/ proteus93, dkachur, and IBUnit63 at a tasting.

Appearance: Pours a thick, inky brown body, capped by one-finger of tan head, bubbly, foamy, and even-looking, with average retention. While the head doesn't stick around for too long, the collar is thick, foamy, and pervasive, and the lacing - though not sheet-like or too sticky - is glittery, blobby, erratic.

Aroma: Surprisingly roasty - heavily so, in fact, almost smoky in places - with tons of toast, earthy smokiness, slight dirt, and, surprisingly, only a faint nuttiness, and not overwhelmingly pecanny in nature. It's about equal parts pecans, walnuts, and almonds, just very "generically" nutty. It's pleasant, authentic, and well-integrated, though.

Taste: Very nice, and very "porterish." Heavily toasted malts, faint bitter chocolate, earthy, dirty malts, faint smoke, and a nice solid nuttiness throughout, which augments the sweetness as it comes through. It tastes a little more like pecan in the mouth than it smelled like in the nose, and its presence evokes a few other notes - something like dark molasses, though that may be too many nights at Waffle House as a Georgia boy comin' through.

Mouthfeel: Incredibly even in a medium body, slightly creamy but still crisp, lightly milky. Very nice for the style, and very nice with the flavor profile.

Drinkability: A really solid, drinkable, low abv% straightforward brew, perfectly pleasant. Really glad to have tried this one, and it makes me wish I lived in Texas - this is the sort of beer I could have half a dozen pints of with friends over the bar on a crisp autumn day. The pecans add a really nice dimension, and as I've said before, as a Georgia boy, I'm a huge fan of the pecan-infused brews. Recommended.
