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!

Served on tap at Black Star Co-op Brewpub in Austin, TX.

A. Black. Typically what I expect for a porter.

S: I get pecan aroma more than from taste.

M: Thick. Lots of body. Very nice.

T: In a word, awesome. Funny, but I would swear this brew was bourbon barrel aged. I don't taste pecan, buf the flavor is outstanding.

O: One of the best porters I've had. Definitely recommended.
