On tap into a pint glass

A - Ultra thin head that is retained as a thin lacing. Beer is pitch black in appearance. Slight mahogany tint around bottom edge of glass. Unable to comment regarding carbonation level. 4.25/5

S - Very muted aroma with notes of molasses, pumpernickel bread, dark toasted bread, and an earthy nuttiness. 3.5/5

T - Very earthy and nutty profile overall which also features notes of brown sugar, tobacco, and grassy hops. Slightly sweet despite the earthiness of the beer which balances things out a bit. No lingering bitterness to the flavor. 4.25/5

M -Heavy but with a high carbonation burn. Somewhat chewy but the carbonation burn maintains a lightness that would not be achieved without the level carbonation that is present. 4/5

O - Very good Pecan Porter offering here. Nice to see a porter that is not crazy sweet or crazy dry or crazy bitter. Very well balanced between earthy, bitter, and sweet. There is a smoothness to this beer that some porters just don't achieve. 4/5

Great looking beer. Very dark with light head - nice clean malt taste and I get a nice hint of coffee and caramel. I don't get the pecans though which is good, as nobody really likes pecans. If we can bury them in beer, let's do that
