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.

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.

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.

Pours dark, with a half inch thick dark head. Smells mainly of chocolate and roasted malt. Tastes rather creamy with a distinct coffee like bitterness. Theres a hoppy bite to it as well with a nice chocolate finish. It's a good beer but where are the pecans? I dunno if my palate just sucks or what but I couldn't taste them.
