On tap at Buffalo WIld Wings in Webster, Texas.

This is a great Porter. Can I taste pecans? I'm not sure. I think they are there. There are the regular porter flavors it seems.. coffee, chocolate... at least to me.

All I know is it's such a good beer. Not one you can drink one after another, but enjoying a pint every now and then is a nice way to finish off a meal.

On tap at Alamo Drafthouse in San Antonio, TX.

A - Dark brown/black. Not much head on this one.

S - Wonderful sweet malt, a hint of roasted chocolate, and of course sweet pecans.

T - Definitely more sweet than roasty. Sweet pecan, roasted chocolate malt, creaminess offsets what little bitterness there is. Very easy drinking, nothing really overpowers.

M - Moderate-to-high carbonation for a porter. It's definitely smooth and creamy, but I would have preferred it to be a little thicker and chewier. Goes down easy, good aftertaste of sweet pecans and a little bit of roasted chocolate.

O - One of my favorite porters. Sweet, smooth, creamy, I could drink this a lot.
