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.

5-17-16 - On tap at the Hyatt Lost Pines outside of Austin, TX. Served in a classic pint glass. Super black with nice tan head. Quick swirl and the head came right back. Tasty porter with nutty tones. Went very well with my jalapeno burger.

Black draft pour with smooth (nitro) creamy tan head; some clarity under cap which was long lasting; heavy lacing. Almost no aroma save for a hint of roasted nuts. Roast malt and subtle pecan flavors. Creamy nitro mouthfeel and moderate plus carbonation. Wish it had a stronger nut presence.

I liked this beer so much I bought a keg of it for my wedding. Most of the guests seemed to like it. Outstanding local beer.

On draft into a pint glass. Very dark brown with little head and ok lacing. The beer is very dark. Rowan with a coffee and chocolate smell and taste. The pecan taste is subtle, and overall a pleasant beer. This keg may have been around a while and the bartender a poor pourer. I had him pour my wife's Ultra in a glass and he did not do that well!
