The beer comes served in a pint glass. It has a dark body with ruby/brown highlights in the light. Light brown head with good retention.

Chocolate, coffee, and pecans jump out. Not complex but very inviting. A little bit of caramel seems to come out towards the end of the glass as it warmed.

Lots of carbonation and a medium body. Washes away quickly leaving a roasty coffee and pecan aftertaste. Light chocolate flavor dominated by the coffee. Get a touch of caramel buried in there.

A great porter here. Hits on all cylinders.

Served in an Imperial pint glass at BD Riley's in Austin. Nice toasty finish, a bit nutty front but not Newcastley harsh. Small head, slight earthy aroma, I identified as pecan only because of the name. A good drinkable porter, not the best I have had but if it is on tap it is worth a pint.
