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

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.

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.

2013 bottle

1st pour I did easy and almost had no head or lacing in my glass. My 2nd pour, I was much more aggressive and received a nice thick mocha head that faded within a few minutes. Better lacing on my glass as well. On the nose all I get is the whiskey and pecans. Taste is pretty much the same, along with the rostaed malts. Mouthfeel is pretty weak, very thin. Overall I feel this is a fun BA beer to drink. I love 512 pecan porter, and I think I was expecting more from the BA version.
