Black pour. Nose is pecan. Very nice nutty/chocolate flavor upfront. Body had a really nice roasted flavor. Chocolate, nut, malt, and espresso all come through. Medium bodied. Nice finish that is creamy espresso with a slight bitterness.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured black with an off-white frothy head that left lots of splashy lace.

S- Big chocolate, cocoa, nutty, brown sugar, and spice notes in the aroma. Very aromatic and rich aroma.

T- Big chocolate, cocoa, nutty, roasted malt, brown sugar, and some light spice notes.

M- Very creamy, smooth, silky, medium body, and dry finish. Incredible mouthfeel and just what I want in a porter or stout.

O- This is the first beer I have had from a Texas brewery on my trip in Texas and it has set the bar very high. This porter is incredibly flavorful, unique, and silky smooth. This beer reminds me of nutella with the big cocoa notes and nutty characteristics.
