look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Pours a cola color with a khaki colored head that is less than one finger head. Not much in the way of retention or lacing.

S - Sweet pecans, vanilla bean, dark fruits, malty and molasses.

T - It's really like drinking a pecan pie to me. Pecans, molasses, bready and vanilla bean.

M - Medium bodied and low carbonation. Finishes wet.

O - It's a bit sweet, definite pecan and vanilla bean. To some it may be a bit gimmicky, but it's spot on in terms of mimicking a pecan pie.

Clear deep, dark red
Sweet syrupy aroma with caramel, brown sugar and light spicing.

More sweet than bitter, Not much pecan or even nutty flavor.
Full smooth body with lively carbonation that is, perhaps, a little too high.

O: a bit to sweet and syrupy, with insufficient input from the pecans, which seem to new missing in action.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown. Medium khaki head. Settles to a thin collar. Then nothing.

Smell - Lots of vanilla. Nutty. Chocolatey. Brown sugar. Boozy.

Taste - Buckets of vanilla. Very sweet. Brown sugar. Caramel. Sweetness dies down into a nuttier flavor. Drops off in the back end. Boozy nutty finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Big and boozy.

Overall - Tasty. A little bit of a mess, but tasty.

750 ml. bottle (from notes, 4/17/14)

A: Dark brown with a slight amber hue.

S: Vanilla and pecans. It smelled sweet and like pecan pie.

T: Lingering sweetness. Lots of vanilla. Quite sweet. It tasted like liquid pie, albeit I very rarely eat pecan pie since it is too sweet for me.

M: Smooth with only slight carbonation.

O: Good stuff but it is probably too sweet for most.
