On Tap at Black Star Co-op.

A: Opaque black with small, tan bubbles. Moderate head
retention and lacing.

S: Very nice. Sweet, roasted malts and a subtle but noticeable
pecan presence.

T: Excellent. Near perfect balance and no off flavors.

M: Medium carbonation and body. I wish it were a tiny bit less

O: They have really dialed this one in. Didn't used to be a fan,
but I am now.

This pours the color of smoke and char, topped by a foamy head the color of cocoa. Full of all sorts of roast aroma, and just a touch of mellow maltiness to round it out. You don’t taste the pecans until you start to sip, and even then it’s not as apparent as you might think. The pecans play a role, as the name implies, but it’s in conjunction with a lot of roasty coffee, some dark chocolate, and a touch of hoppy bitterness to keep it engaging. Seriously folks, this is one of my favorite porters. I had it at the tail end of its release last year and I’m glad I’ve been in Texas long enough to try it fresh this year. Look for it on hand pump—it's also an amazing candidate for cask conditioning.

[9/11 review] Had on cask at the Draughthouse in Austin. They have such a limited distribution for this that I'll take it when I can get it.

Served in a nonick pint glass. Pours a delicious black with a good amount of head. Great carbonation, strong roasty aroma and dark coffee in the nose. Great body, and on cask it works so well that i might *might* not be able to drink it on tap again. I kid, I kid. But on cask, wow! Needless to say, tastes fantastic. Smooth oily mouthfeel, sharp roastiness, some coffee. I don’t taste the pecans at first but the smoothness and residual sweetness is there as it warms. Definitely reminds me of a pecan coffee, where there’s a balance of sweet & savory through the roast. This is a seasonal that has a limited distribution and I wish they’d bottle it so i could take it with me.
