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!

Thanks Travis224 for the hook-up!

Opaque black color with a light brown head that leaves spots of lacing on the glass.

Awesome aroma of chocolate, a bit of stone fruit and roasted grains. The pecan is subtle but comes out a bit as the glass empties and warms a bit.

Big flavor with the malts, hops and pecan all well integrated into a pretty, round whole. Roasty, sweet in the middle with a crisp dry finish.

Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied but with some finesse - not too heavy.

A great American porter - one of the best I have had!

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.

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
carbonated.

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