look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Deepest of browns and with a full inch of creamy tan head to begin, dying down to about a quarter as much, clinging to the edges throughout.

Dark roasted malts, inhaled through the nose and pushing outward like the air in a balloon.

Deep roastiness, but not from the coffee or chocolate that so often accompany the style. This is a distinctive nuttiness that could only come from what they’ve done with pecans here, which slowly roll around the mouth like they’re still whole. Sweet from the brown sugar, earthy, soft and chewy. Lingers for minutes.

Smooth and still prickly on the tongue, mildly burning on the back of the tongue.

Easy to drink and enjoy, especially this time of year. Tasty and unique.

22oz bomber poured into a pint glass 9/1/13, bottled 11/13/12.

Pour: Dark brown, with a decent foamy head, though that disappears rather quickly.

Aroma: Nice dark malt notes; baker's chocolate, vanilla, a touch of coffee, and a little bit of bitterness that seems to attach to the chocolate.

Taste: Matches the aroma, with big chocolate flavors right up front, but the bitterness attached has a slight hint of hop flavor as well. There's also a good amount of vanilla flavoring, and sweet pecan in the background.

Overall: At first, this beer is spectacular, but as it warms, it adds no complexity, and perhaps loses some flavor, fading into a mouthful of baker's chocolate and little else. Still, worth the venture.

I wish I had also had one of these last November for comparison.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Poured dark brown, nearly black, with a light brown head. The head soon reduces to a durable partial coat and ring. Moderate lacing.

Smells sweet and delicious. Some pecan pie filling with cinnamon. Moderately strong. Only faint grains.

Less sweet than it smells, there's a solid layer of medium and dark roasted grains with a bit of caramel and dark chocolate. A hint of roasted pecans, but wuite faint, as is the coffee in the finish. Near equal sweet/bitter by the finish. Nice nutty/malty aftertaste.

Medium body; very good carbonation level; very smooth; dry finish.

O: Lightly boozy nose and feel, but still drinks like 4-5% ABV brew. A distinct, remarkably smooth Amer. Porter. Recommended.
