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!

Had this on cask at draught house.
By chance ran in to kevin and nate from 512 brewery who were chillin outside. They were very interested in my thought on this beer.

Appearance - still creamy cascading head that infiltrates the darkness. Was a little less head but still very creamy.The color is still very very dark hardly no lights can get in.

The nose still gettin roasted coffee, chocolate, raisin, hops, and some pecan. Also on cask the hops in the nose seem to come out more.

Mouthfeel - I get a creaminess coffee up front with some smokey roasted chocolates going on. Then after that the hops come through quite abit with the pecans on the back end coming in. Still Very light though. Medium body which seems to be even thinner a bit on cask. The hop profile really comes through on the backend before the nutty hits you. Was a nice surprise.

Drinkability - Having this on cask was slighty different than the draught itself. Most notable is the hop profile that comes through

Still a damn fine beer.

Served on tap at Black Star Co-op Brewpub in Austin, TX.

A. Black. Typically what I expect for a porter.

S: I get pecan aroma more than from taste.

M: Thick. Lots of body. Very nice.

T: In a word, awesome. Funny, but I would swear this brew was bourbon barrel aged. I don't taste pecan, buf the flavor is outstanding.

O: One of the best porters I've had. Definitely recommended.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appears as close to black as you can get. About 3/4 inch head that laces nicely throughout the drink.

Smells of coffee, pecans and dark chocolate.

First taste is impressive. Goes through the gamut of chocolate, coffee and nuttiness. Hops accentuate all the characters and balance well with a good bit of malts. Best porter I've tried, leaves room for more. Only minus is an average mouthfeel, which may not be a minus for some. Wonderful beer!
