(512) Double Pecan Porter is a robust porter accented by locally grown roasted pecans and subtly enhanced by aging in recently emptied oak whiskey barrels. For the first ever bottling, only one 200L barrel was bottled. Notes of chocolate, coffee and pecan marry with the subtle flavors of vanilla and whiskey to make this a wonderful winter warmer worth sharing and savoring. We sincerely hope you enjoy every sip.

Weird prickly carbonation and a fruity tang made this a strange barrel aged porter

Infection going on here. Total gusher, carbonation totally off. Some smell of pecans that I would expect, but then something else wrong here. Once the carbonation calmed down, the beer looked well enough, some hope that everything else would be alright. But from the mouthfeel it was obvious this had gone bad, just didn't seem normal. The carbonation ruined everything about this beer. Might be best to avoid bottles of this and focus on getting it on draft.

Bottle: Poured a deep black color porter with a nice light brown foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt notes with black chocolates with subtle pecan notes. Whiskey notes are also easily noticeable and provided a nice smooth finish to the beer. Body is a bit thinner then I was expected with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very nice beer but can’t say that pecan are as apparent as I would have expected.
