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!

Pitch black color with a thick caramel head with eternal retention and a wall of laces.
Nice aroma with notes of coffee, nuts, some dark chocolate and licorice.
Flavor of pecans (not lots of it), char, coffee, mild lactic, some mild spices and licorice.
Very dry aftertaste with an eternal residual taste.
Medium body giving a sensation of full body given its type of carbonation. Completely smooth and silky, I even had to look for nitro addition. Alcohol feels absent.
Very flavorful porter, not hoppy but with a roasted malty bitterness.

I do not like porters at all. That being said, this is a good tasting pecan porter. I enjoyed it a lot.

Appearance: Opaque mahogany brown, verging on black, with a large tan head, which retains fairly well. Thin, fine-beaded lacing adorns the glass walls. (4.0/5.0)

Aroma: Strong notes of roasted barley, cold coffee, bitter cocoa, brown sugar, earth, and roasted pecans, the last well befitting its name. (4.0/5.0)

Taste: Opens with strong roasted malt flavors, very pleasant, and largely free of acidity. Cold coffee soon follows, with a compliment of bitter chocolate. Later in the taste, the rich nuttiness of the pecans is evident, as well. Late in the taste, there is a slight earthy hop presence, and a lingering note of roasted barley and cold coffee. (4.0/5.0)

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very pleasant, with just the slightest sting of carbonation. (4.0/5.0)

Drinkability/notes: Unwaveringly excellent, I wish this were bottled. If you should find yourself in Austin, Texas, (512) Pecan Porter should be on your bucket list. (4.0/5.0)

Presentation: Packaged in a 64 ounce brown glass growler purchased at HEB in Austin, Texas, on 08/26/2014. Served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager sensory glass. The growler fill was $12.00 plus tax.
