Notes/Commercial Description:
The brewery releases this special beer once a year, just in time for the holidays, and this “2013 vintage” has a slightly tweaked recipe that aims to accentuate the roasted pecan flavors even more. With many breweries releasing pumpkin beers and Oktoberfest styles this time of year, this brewery has taken a different approach, offering a refreshing alternative to an autumnal release.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a medium brown color with an off white head and some lacing. The aroma is sweet, sugary, toasty and certainly malty. A bit of a nutty smell as well. In the taste, more sweet caramel, nuts, roasted malt and vanilla type flavor. This would qualify as a dessert beer with a strong sweet nutty notes reminiscent of a vanilla cream hazelnut coffee. Full bodied and smooth, this is a beer that sticks with you with a delicious nutty finish. Overall, this is a sweet nutty beer that I always enjoy. Worthy.

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

A: poured into a nonic to a nice black with a half inch of dense tan head that fades to a small pool leaving a bit of lacing
S: smells kind of nutty with some chocolate and a hint of coffee. the nose is fairly sweet
T: the taste on this beer starts a little nutty and then goes brown sugar sweet. the brown sugar sweetness dominates with a bit of chocolate coming through at times along with that pecan flavor. swallow is very sweet with more chocolate, pecan, brown sugar and coffee.
M: this beer is medium in the mouth with slightly prickly carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: Overall a pretty interesting beer. The brown sugar seems to dominate and push the beer toward cloying but it doesn't quite get there. The more I drink it the more it's growing on me.
