Sampled on tap at BJ's in Round Rock. I normally go for the hoppy stuff but I've been thinking more and more about porters so I gave this a try. I'm glad I did. It's creamy and smooth with lots of chocolate and nuts in the flavor. The aroma has coffee but not so much in the flavor. This is a fantastic beer.

App- Black like a stout which was a welcome suprise. The beer itself pours with a nice head for a porter was again a good suprise. Light khaki with some spotted cling.

Smell- Really a nice aromatic porter. The base malts are hidden and the pecan really comes through with a bit of cream behind it. The malts are hidden but still there is more of a correct statement.

Taste- A semi-layered porter. Had a ton of upfront pecans with some creamy malty notes that came off a bit more than the 8%. Was a tasty porter and nicely balanced without being cloying.

Mouth- A bit of a light body with a light-medium carbonation. A bit smooth with a lot of residual pecan flavor.

Drink- I really enjoyed this one. Much better than the base beer was. I'd like a couple bottles of this.

Pours an opaque deep dark brown, almost black with khaki colored head. Nuts, cocoa, and a little toffee on the aroma. Same on the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with just a hint of sweetness.
