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.

Dark brown approaching black in color. Nice thick tan head with good retention. Looks very inviting. Carbonation is just right.

Huge whiskey smell, which I love. Pick up some toffee smells I would expect from a stout. A hint of licorice.

It has a nice sweetness to it. Great to drink all by itself. Hints of coffee/caramel and licorice. The whiskey flavor is very big and forward just like in the smell. A great deep rich flavor overall.

Very smooth body, with just the right level of creamy/thickness. The alcohol is smooth, but the presence of whiskey notes really reminds you that its there, which is great.

Great complexity and richness. Easy to drink, I'll be sure to grab another bottle next year.

The guys at 512 have come up with a near-perfect beer, in my humble opinion. Their Pecan Porter is already a firm favourite of mine, but this has raised it several notches above its already high standard.

It pours every bit as dark as the regular porter, with that familiar coffee-coloured head that lasts and lasts, but when you raise the glass to your nose there's a familiar whiff of vanilla that you get from an oak barrel, along with more than a hint of the whiskey that was once in it. The pecans are slightly overpowered in this brew but that's not something to mark it down for - it's still one of the best porters I've tasted. There's a wonderfully dry, bitter finish to the brew. As full-bodied as it should be.

I have to knock half a point off the drinkability just because of the 8.8% ABV. It's not a beer I could drink more than one of a night, nor should you, I reckon.

Unbelievable barrel aged beer. I'm very particular on the barrel aged stouts and this is the first barrel aged porter I have tried and it did not disappoint. Great porter taste with smooth whiskey finish. This is up there with the best barrel aged beers and the best beer I have had to come out of ATX.

When i went to the (512) brewery and saw the JD barrels i almost cried. When i asked Kevin and Nate what they planned on doing with them, and they told me double pecan porter... I did cry.

This beer pours like a pecan porter, head looks like a pecan porter. When you give it a good whiff, it smells like a shot of whiskey. You hesitate putting it to you lips because your nose is telling you you're drinking whiskey, but once you taste it... you're mouth calls your nose a liar. It is a very smooth/drinkable beer. Props to Nate and Kevin for this brew. Believe this one is about 10% ABV?
