I never like to bad mouth anything and I wont start here. But, this was a beer that I did not like at all. Right from the onset, the pour was less to than favorable, there wasnt much of any aroma in the glass and the first sip didnt offer me anything that I was looking for.
Each follow on sip did nothing more to impress me with this one
Sorry, guess we cant like every beer

22 oz bottle pours a mostly black color with a bubbly khaki head. Retention and lacing are both a tad below average. Bonus points awarded for a great label and beer name.
Nose is definitely sweet...with caramel, simple syrup and a misplaced black licorice aroma. One-dimensional for sure and the lack of darker malt aromas has me a bit worried. Where's the pecans??
Taste still shows this odd flavor of black licorice, it just doesn’t fit here. The sweetness is not as over the top as I thought it would be, and comes across mostly in the form of burnt caramel and roast. I do get a little bit of roasted pecan in here, but it kind of astringent and not very nutty. Nor is the beer very pie-esque. Mouthfeel on it basically sucks...its flimsy, one-dimensional, flat tasting and has no direction or flow. Some of Clown Shoes beers I find to be quite delicious...this one, however, is not one of them...Mr. Khan would go ape shit on Massachusetts if he got wind of this.

As usual, this Clown Shoes beer pours nicely enough, a nice dark, rich brown with a decent head. I was certainly intrigued by the idea of this beer- a pecan pie porter- just imagine how decadent and delicious that could be! Unfortunately, this beer isn't either. It has a bit of pecan pie on the finish, but it's very faint. The front and main body of the beer is too thin, has a fair bit of grainy sourness, and lacks flavor. The aroma almost wholly lacks any indication of what kind of beer this is. Certainly it seems more like a brown ale than a porter, and not a very good one at that. It really cries out for richness and depth, and some roastiness. None are really there. The only saving grace is the hint of nutty brown sugar sweetness right at the end of the finish. Great idea, now get back to the drawing board and make it work.

A: poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass, dark purple brown with a short tan head that dissipates quickly leaving little lacing, clear
S: nutty malt aroma, brown sugar, toffee, caramel
T: average porter flavor, slight pecan bitterness, some flavor of sweet alcohol
M: medium to full bodied with average carbonation, alcohol present
O: It does not taste like pecan pie. It is an average porter that is slightly boozy.

I won't go into all the fancy stuff with you, I will just say that the key to this one is FORGET THE WORDS "PECAN PIE" - It's just a solid Porter Beer that packs a punch, that's it.
I wouldn't Drainpour it or pass up a free one but, it's also not one I would hunt down.
