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.

Genghis Pecan pours a deep brown with a relatively sizable head. The aroma is sweet, roasty, and slightly sour. The taste offers a full, nearly ashy roast along with a subtle nut characteristic. The sour component is still present, if not as strong as the nose presented, suggesting the beginning stages of an infection. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side, with a moderate carbonation. The drinkability is good. Overall, Genghis Pecan is a pretty solid porter. The sour aspects haven't progressed to the point where they really hurt the beer that much.
