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!

I was excited to try this on cask at Opals. It was served in a standard shaker pint and the beer is a dark, dark brown with a tan priest's collar.

The aroma is of toasted malts, brown sugar and a hint of pecans.

Served at correct cellar temp, the beer is slightly woody with mild roasted malts, a hint of coffee, and those pecans in the background. I wish they would up the nut notes a bit.

The mouth is silky smooth but it thins a bit in the end. Drinkability suffers a bit from the wood notes. Perhaps a cask at the end of its life?

Glad I got to try this one. It's decent, but a bit of tweaking would push it into the excellent category.

Light bodied and interesting without being overly flavorful. Near black in the pint shaker with a modest head and some lacing along the glass.

Dark caramel flavor, a touch of bitter chocolate, and something like nuts. I guess it's the pecans, though the flavor doesn't jump out at you. I wouldn't describe it as buttery, but there is a hint of that acetyl taste. Some bitterness along with a distinct grainy flavor. A walnut shell bitterish taste along with a slight sourness of the burnt barley sort. Not much of a fragrance.

An okay quaff, and more interesting than a lot of Porters. On tap at the Double Horn brewpub in Marble Falls.

Drank this beer at “The Ginger Man” last night, it was my first time visiting this establishment and was pleasantly surprised by their abundant local beer selection.

A: The beer poured a dark ashy brown that was topped with a small head and exhibited some lacing.

S: Earthy malts with coffee and chocolate undertones.

T: Slightly nutty with subtle coffee and chocolate as indicated by the scent, unfortunately they faded quickly and didn’t deliver enough flavor in my opinion.

M: Medium bodied, relatively high carbonation.


O: Good porter, but not up to par with many others I’ve tasted.

On tap about a month ago... old notes that I didn't date at least...

A: Dark brown, nearly black. More than an inch of very tan head. Beautiful appearance. Good lacing.

S: Very coffee like aroma, and an earthy smoke. Not much pecan on the aroma, but I'm not sure I could pick out pecans by smell.

T: Dark malts. Smooth molasses, smoke, a little nuttiness I guess but maybe I was anticipating more pecans.

M: Solid body, very nice.

D: I could have many of these, definitely a go-to beer.
