22 oz. bomber poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Dark brown opaque color with a small tan head. Below average lacing. Mediocre carbonation.
Smell: The nose smells of pecans, butterscotch, caramel, brown sugar, and toasted malts.
Taste: This beer arrives with a sweet punch of pecan pie followed by a lingering smoked finish once the sweetness subsides. Tastes like a perfect dessert beer. Malt, butter, and caramel notes are prominent. Hints of chocolate are in the background. The taste is just like the smell.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Average carbonation. Smooth, sweet, and creamy.
Ending notes: I was impressed by this beer. It was, however, a little on the sweet side. Overall, it's a very good dessert brew and I would recommend it as such.

Stumbled across this curiosity at my local wine shop. Never heard of the brew nor the brewer, but there’s no way I’m about to pass up a beer whose label depicts Genghis Khan throwing pies at turkeys.
A: Pours black with a teensy bit of mocha head.
S: Very malty. Brown sugar’s big here, but not really getting the pecan pie thing they were going for. Chocolate, coffee, a bit of vanilla. Smells like a typical porter, I suppose, if a bit thin.
T: I guess it was silly of me to realistically think this would actually taste like pie. It doesn't. It tastes like beer. Which is good! Right? Caramelized sugar at the tip of the tongue is quickly overtaken by coffee and hops. Not nearly as sweet as I had expected. Bitter chocolate/coffee aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied with barely-existent carbonation.
O: It’s not a bad beer - far from it – but it’s not the beer I wanted. No, it does not taste like pecan pie. It tastes like a slightly above average coffee porter.
