Notes/Commercial Description:
(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.

Thanks Mista!

Extremely foamy pour, off the charts :-/ Appears a little thin but mouthfeel turned out to be okay. Too tart in the nose and apparently a little funky... something is off here with weird nose and carbonation issues. Tastes fine though: chocolate, roast, and only slightly nutty if at all. In spite of the somewhat off aroma this was an enjoyable brew.

2012 vintage. Bottle into a new Belgium goblet. Shared by ejyoung.

Explodes upon touching the glass -- one part liquid, three parts foam like spun brown sugar. It eventually recedes to a thick, half-finger layer above plain black liquid. 3

Vanilla, booze, tons of toasted pecans, milk chocolate and maple in the nose. Sweet and rich. Maybe a touch metallic.

Crumbled chocolate, a touch of tangy dark fruit. The whiskey is well integrated, lending tangy booze to the chocolate malts. Pecans actually take a backseat. As it warms, sweet caramel and toasted bread emerge. Lingering chocolate bitterness and a finish of dry pecans.

Carbonation from the appearance carries into the mouthfeel, exploding when it hits the tongue. This is the main downside to the brew -- I want a heavy, thick, creamy body, not crazy Belgian bubbles.

Good flavor. A little thin, both in flavor and body, but enjoyable.

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
