(512) Whiskey Barrel Aged Double Pecan Porter(512) Whiskey Barrel Aged Double Pecan Porter
Notes: (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.

Bottle from 2014. Infected bottle. Gusher once opened and poured into a teku glass. Smell of pecans and a hint of whiskey. Taste very off. Sour and not in a good way. Was really looking forward to this one, big disappointment.

Disgustingly infected. Smells like a bunch of mixed bottom shelf liquor mixed together in a bathtub at a frat party. Taste is boozy with an overwhelming funky tart from the infection. Can't really give any more specific tasting notes because I was so distracted by the funk. I'm normally not so negative about (inadvertently) funky beers and I suck it up when Ranger Creek does this constantly, but this pecan porter was a solid $15-20 a bottle here, so the lack of quality control is egregious. Last beer I buy bottled from 512.

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

Pours dark with a small quickly dissipating light brown head. Being a bigger barrel aged beer it gets some slack.

The aromas come off like the regular version with the chocolate and pecan but get a kick of bourbon barrel. A little sweet.

Chocolate, pecan, bourbon, vanilla and at this point of the night I can't tell if the alcohol is peeking through or if it is just bourbon flavor. Lol.

Some prickly carbonation and a medium body.

Glad I didn't go crazy trying to track a bottle down around town. Worth a try especially if you dig the regular Pecan Porter.

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....
