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.
