On tap at Umami Mia Pizzeria in Austin TX.

A: Came in a pint glass. Looked like a porter, what little head it has vanished quickly.

S: Typical for a porter, roasted coffees, chocolates. No memorable hop smell.

T: Well done toast with slight cacao bitterness, little bit of coffee and faint hint of nuttiness presumably the pecans but nothing jumps out. The different flavors do swirl around for a second, making for an interesting moment. The menu said 30 IBU and for sure there was little hop bitterness there.

M: A bit watery for a porter, was hoping for more malts.

O: A very unoffensive porter but not highly memorable. If you give it to me I won't complain but next time I'll try something different. Not a good complement to pizza.

on tap at Onion Creek in Houston
16 oz. standard pint glass

L: black brown with 1/4-inch tan head; what a stout/porter looks like.

S: wine, loads of malt and there's a distinct burnt note coming through; you can smell the pecans in there at times

T: smokey burnt oak/wood with burnt pecans; so much malt ... it keeps it sweet and helps balance out the darker "burnt" notes.

F: full ... a midweight to more with enough carbonation to keep it clean

O: i would LOVE to get a bomber or 6-pack of this for the house, so i could sit with it and study it much more closely ... but without question, it's awesome.

i've had it twice at Onion Creek, the first time by accident. a friend ordered it, didn't want it, so i traded my SA Santo for the pecan porter not really wanting to do so, but what a fortunate event! this brew was a major step for me in my efforts to get more comfortable with the stout/porter genre ... those pecans are too yummy.

Appearance: 4.0

Dark brown in color, no light passes through this porter. Slim foamy head.

Smell: 4.25

Pecan flavors are present and other hearty malts most likely chocolate.

Taste: 4.25

Dark flavors consisting of pecan and chocolate with a medium to heavy body.

Mouthfeel: 4.0

Slight carbonation and hoppy taste , leaves a slightly bitter after taste.

Overall: 4.25

This is a great dark beer with the flavors of Austin Texas, the pecan is pleasant, but doesn't over due the other flavors of bitter malts and chocolate notes. I would recommend this one to any porter lover out there.
