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!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Slips out a very dark, deep brown body with a thinnish, khaki-toned head.

Smell: Pecan Porter has a roasty, subtly nutty nose with sweetish touches of chocolate and cooked sugar.

Taste: A flavor that mirrors the nose, with tastes of well-roasted malt, chocolate and burnt sugars. The pecan addition is appreciable but is not the focus of the flavor, here, remaining fairly light. Small hint of raisin. Hop character and bitterness remains low. Very minimal alcohol presence. Mellow, lightly drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: While the pecans add a light, scant flavor and may leave you wanting, it still remains a nice, pleasant porter.
