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 poured into a straight sided pint glass. Beer pours a dark brown, bordering on opaque black, with a finger of creamy light brown head that leaves thick lacing as you drink from the glass. A few bubbles stuck on the edges of the glass.

Nose is milk chocolate, nutty pecan, roasted malt, and a bit of oat grain.

Taste follows the nose, milk chocolate, nutty flavors, roasted and toasted malt. A light hop bitterness on the finish.

Full body and creamy, perhaps a bit of oat in the recipe. An enjoyable porter.

On tap into a pint glass at the Flying Saucer in Rockwall, TX

A - very dark brown/black with medium-tan foam. Not much head on the unseen pour and what is there vanishes immediately with virtually no lacing.

S - Faint hints of char, sweetness but try as I might, I could not pick up in pecans or nutty aromas. Solid nose on this beer, just didnt meet my expectations.

T - almost all the taste is on the front side of the drink. Matches the nose closely but finally able to detect sublte nuttiness. Again, would have liked more pecan to help distinguish it from several other quality American porters. To me, this style is lacking when brewers dont add unusual (for porters) flavor. Solid flavor for the style tho, thus the score.

M - Like a good porter should, coats the mouth briefly and finishes clean...cleaner than a majority of the ones I have had recently actually. Well done here.

O - Not too overwhelmed by my first (512) brew sadly. I am sure their whales have more character but I was just (perhaps unjustly) hoping for more. However, this is a really good example of the style and I would reach for it over a majority of other American porters if it had ANY distribution near me. Solid porter.
