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!

Pours with a small head into std pint glass, but maintains traditional thin head for porter.

Nose is very malty as is the initial taste. Leaves a bit of a nutty/coffee aftertaste. This is a very good slow drinking bar beer, enjoyable to the very end. It's not distributed to stores in my area yet, but I'd puck up some of this for a late night beer if it was. Good stuff.

Pours ½ finger of tan head. Color is a dark caramel brown, nearing black.

Aroma: Roasted chocolate, caramel, coffee, nuts, earthy hops. Nice.

Taste: Earthy hops, roasted nuts, caramel, chocolate, and coffee. Just like the nose, except here it has some vanilla. Good.

Mouthfeel: Roasted, smooth, and creamy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends roasted.

Overall, a pretty awesome porter with some great flavors. Good drinkability. One of the better Texas beers I have had on my trip.

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