A: poured a dark brown in color with brown highlights when held to the light with a huge 4 finger khaki colored head that left way too much bubbly lacing sticking to the glass.
S: I did get plenty of whiskey heat upfront in the aroma with chocolate goodness, maybe a little pecan character but I did manage to sniff out some good wood notes, slightly dark fruits and coffee coming through as well.
T: the pecan was more apparent on the palate but was still a little muted alongside great dark chocolate flavor, nice woody barrel character, sweetness from the vanilla, very well hidden whiskey boooze heat, good coffee notes and roastiness.
M; the brew was medium in body with tons of carbonation which had a semi sweet, nutty, mildly dark fruity, boozy, woody frothy and creamy finish.
O: it was a good beer all around but I feel the over carbonation took away from the overall flavor.

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
