Thank you to RandomName7 for sending me this bottle.
2012 vintage, poured into a generic cognac snifter.
A: This beer poured a nice black with a HUGE tan head, even while cold. It was difficult to judge how thick the beer pours with all the head.After pouring a little and waiting for the head to dissipate a few times I was ready to drink.
S: The smell was a bit different than I normally expect for a porter. I did get a hint of roast and a bit of pecan, but there was something off in the nose. I just couldn't quite put my finger on it.
T: The taste had a little roast and a touch of oak. Not getting much bourbon or pecans in the taste. There was something different with the taste. It was a bit off but I couldn't put my finger on it. It wasn't dominating, but noticeable. It stayed in the background throughout, even as the beer warmed.
M: Carbonation was very high for the style and it seemed a bit thin. I got lots of prickly carbonation with each sip, from fridge temp all the way to room temp.
O: Overall this beer turned out different than I expected. I won't cry infected but something unusual was definitely going on with this one. I wouldn't risk aging it.

Served in a tulip glass at The Bottle Shop in Dallas Texas.
A - Pours very dark with a nice brown head. Low height that dissipated rather quickly.
S - The first notes are whiskey (was told this was a bourbon barrel) with hints of roasted malt. Light pecan smells linger.
T - Starts with a nice roasted malt taste with nutty pecan very evident. The high alcohol is not noticed, but the pecan stays on the palate, along with the well balanced porter flavors. Ends with a slightly sweet whiskey finish.
M - Smooth for the high alcohol.
O - Very drinkable porter. I am a (512) Pecan Porter fan, this one adds complex whiskey notes and sweetness with a little more alcohol.
Serving type: on-tap
