On tap in a pint glass.
Looks really dark, pretty much black. Small head that thins out to a small lace that keeps over time.
Taste has notes of coffee, at times burnt coffee. Malty. And some light notes of pecan that don't always come through.
Pretty good beer, I'd get it again.

Served on tap in a shaker, pours a mahogany with a thin khaki crown....not a ton of lacing. Nose is promising if a little underdeveloped- I get some bitter coffee, some baker's chocolate, meaty and woody pecan (but light). Taste follows the nose...and there might be a little vanilla in there. It's nice but I'm a limited way. Feel is a little thin, a litle flat.

Some say I'm a dreamer, but my mind is set on believing this is 512's best beer. the IPA may sell better but they perfected the balance of toasty/burnt malts of the porter with the level of pecan flavor. It goes down smooth and is perfect for cool Autumn weather.

I was very surprised by this one. It had a very thin mouthfeel as expected, but the flavor was great. It had a nice roasty flavor and almost reminded me of pecan pie crust.
