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!

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.

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.
