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

Appearance is chocolate black with strong soft brown head and great stay in the glass.

The smell is a moderate sweet roasted brown sugar pecan

The taste is sweet pecan followed by a sweet nutty finish that accurately approximates a pecan pie. Given it's a pecan pie porter that's exactly as expect. Unfortunately the flavor is cloying over time making the beer loose a little bit of it's initial wonder further along the beer.

The mouth is smooth clean crisp and refreshing as expected of a craft beer.

Overall it's a good beer that falls just short of outstanding in the later stages of the glass.

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.

Clown Shoes Genghis Pecan Pie Porter.
A very good 7%abv brewed in Massachusetts from the same guys who make great beer names like "muffin top".
It Pours dark, almost black with a nice think brown head.
The aroma is malty surprisingly not much of the pecan.
The taste is very smooth and nutty flavor, more so than pecan. I do not get the pie taste. Not overly sweet. It does develop more as it warms.
The finish Is very nice with almost a hint of peanut butter.
The mouth feel is a little light. I expected maybe a little more viscosity.
Over all a very good and drinkable beer! Worth a try
