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!

On-tap at Deep-Ellum for their Texas Beer Takeover event for the release party of Brash's The Bollocks. Served in a pint glass.

A- An opaque jet-black with about a finger of light creamy slightly bubbly mocha brown head that has good retention, but dissipates slowly. Some spotty mocha lacing. About average carbonation.

S- Pecans, dark chocolate, light roasted malts, some espresso, about average aroma strength.

T- Lightly toasted pecans, some almonds, a tiny bit of sweet dark chocolate, light espresso, lightly sweet, with a pecan slightly chocolate malty aftertaste.

M- Smooth, drinkable, about average carbonation, lightly creamy, abv well hidden.

O- This was a very nice porter that I'm glad I got the chance to try on-tap (first time it's been served in MA). It had a nice pecan taste balanced with chocolate malts with an excellent drink-ability. Definitely not nearly as good as other porters I've had such as Founders and HF Everett. To reach that level it would have needed a little bit more flavor/sweetness and creaminess. Overall well done and I recommend trying some if you get the chance.

A: very dark brown. Almost black, but not quite. Forms a thick dark tan colored head that has good retention. Some light lacing.

S: A lot of barrel comes through on this one. Oak, vanilla, and a lot of alcohol. Actually this one comes off as fairly hot.

T: sweet and malty with notes of brown sugar, molasses, raisin, and chocolate. Lots of alcohol on the finish.

M: on the heavier side of medium with medium carbonation, very mild bitterness, and lots of spicy, hot alcohol.

O: a nice porter, but the alcohol really comes through to the point of distraction. if there is pecans in this beer, you'd never n
Know it.

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.

Pours with a small head into std pint glass, but maintains traditional thin head for porter.

Nose is very malty as is the initial taste. Leaves a bit of a nutty/coffee aftertaste. This is a very good slow drinking bar beer, enjoyable to the very end. It's not distributed to stores in my area yet, but I'd puck up some of this for a late night beer if it was. Good stuff.

Serving type: on-tap
