BEER INFO

Brewed by:
(512) Brewing Company
Texas, United States
512brewing.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
(512) Double Pecan Porter is a robust porter accented by locally grown roasted pecans and subtly enhanced by aging in recently emptied oak whiskey barrels. For the first ever bottling, only one 200L barrel was bottled. Notes of chocolate, coffee and pecan marry with the subtle flavors of vanilla and whiskey to make this a wonderful winter warmer worth sharing and savoring. We sincerely hope you enjoy every sip.

(512) Brewing Company "Whiskey Barrel Aged Double Pecan Porter"
on tap @ Craft Pride, Austin, TX on 5 November 2015
$5.50 / 6.5 oz.

Notes: Listed at 8.2% ABV... not sure what year it is. The barrel actually brings out the pecan in comparison to the regular, unless of course there's actually double pecans in use - I tasted them side by side. Bourbon and oak are found in the aroma along with a mild dark roastiness. The flavor follows with an additional touch of fruit and chocolate and milky coffee; and then finishes with fruit, cocoa, a hint of alcohol (Bourbon) and coconut. Medium bodied with a median carbonation. It's unlike any beer I've ever tasted, and I've had other pecan beers before. Was it worth the cost? Probably when you consider that it's a beer you sip at rather than just drink down; and that there are added costs in the ingredients (mainly the pecans) to get it to where it is. In any case it's unique, and probably worth trying based on that alone, but I'd suggest you look for the standard version as well so that you can compare the two.

On tap at Bangers. Dull pour and mild aroma, but wait for it....huge taste and lingering warmth. Nutty, sweet, woody. All comes together quite nicely. Drinkable, but sip slowly, and savor....

Chocolate, coffee, pecans, whiskey. Whiskey is a little too much for me. I would recommend doing some blending to chill it out a little bit. Otherwise, I always look forward to what these guys will produce!

I love 512 pecan porter , I always order it when I see it on tap, many times & have always loved it.! So knowing the 2014 BA pecan porter was funky tart from the infection & had to be poured out ! When I saw the (2015) I was so happy to try it. ! No,--- Not the same thing , I got a bad sour,tart flavor big time, W/ heavy carbonation totally off. ! So be aware this can be a hit or miss, cant believe (512) has not pulled this beer .? P.S. I will not stop drinking Reg, 512 pecan when I see it on tap ! I was so looking forward to this beer... ! Anyone else taste the sour, tart notes in this BA, porter.? Cheers
