look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Served in an Imperial pint glass at BD Riley's in Austin. Nice toasty finish, a bit nutty front but not Newcastley harsh. Small head, slight earthy aroma, I identified as pecan only because of the name. A good drinkable porter, not the best I have had but if it is on tap it is worth a pint.

Serving type: on-tap

App- Black like a stout which was a welcome suprise. The beer itself pours with a nice head for a porter was again a good suprise. Light khaki with some spotted cling.

Smell- Really a nice aromatic porter. The base malts are hidden and the pecan really comes through with a bit of cream behind it. The malts are hidden but still there is more of a correct statement.

Taste- A semi-layered porter. Had a ton of upfront pecans with some creamy malty notes that came off a bit more than the 8%. Was a tasty porter and nicely balanced without being cloying.

Mouth- A bit of a light body with a light-medium carbonation. A bit smooth with a lot of residual pecan flavor.

Drink- I really enjoyed this one. Much better than the base beer was. I'd like a couple bottles of this.

Serving type: on-tap

16oz->(512) Glass
On-tap at Mellow Mushroom

A ~ Black with a butterscotch head. standard in appearence for a porter. There's light webs of lacing.

S ~ Molasses-sweetness & toasted grain
with an undercurrent of burnt coffee notes

T ~ BIG handfuls of heavily roasted grains & coffee. Milk sugar & caramelized pecans mid palette. Slight hoppy resins.
Touch of chocolate cake batter. YUM!

M ~ Would like for a little more balance in terms of sweet maltyness & bitter roast notes. Hop resins play well in the mix of things.

D ~ Pretty easy to drink, but did not pair well with food as I hoped. A good porter, heavy on the roast.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Brown beer that looks just a touch brown in the light. Brown, carbonation bubble head rose a little late. Faded to a partial cap and then a small ring.

S - Roasted malts, pecans, chocolate, and some coffee. There are some slight lactic sour notes.

T - Taste is actully quite good. Roasted malts and pecans. There is quite a bit of chocolate on this one. Flavors all meld together pretty well. Only knock I have on this is a slight lactic sourness on the end. It gets a lot stronger as the beer warms up.

M - Nice body, soft carbonation. It's a little bit thin on the end. But not bad.

O - Actually a pretty good beer, if it wasn't for the lactic sourness on the end, this would be great.

3.83/5  rDev -7.9%
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.

Serving type: bottle

Served a pitch black with a creamy dark brown head. Smells of sweetened espresso. Taste is a blast of fresh coffee up front, followed by a sweet toffee middle, and a smokey woody finish. Rich mouthfeel, low carbonation. Overall a good porter I would get again.

Serving type: on-tap
