A - Pours a cola color with a khaki colored head that is less than one finger head. Not much in the way of retention or lacing.

S - Sweet pecans, vanilla bean, dark fruits, malty and molasses.

T - It's really like drinking a pecan pie to me. Pecans, molasses, bready and vanilla bean.

M - Medium bodied and low carbonation. Finishes wet.

O - It's a bit sweet, definite pecan and vanilla bean. To some it may be a bit gimmicky, but it's spot on in terms of mimicking a pecan pie.

Bottle poured into snifter, dark pour w little carbonation. Hint of pecans and malts are evident to the nose. Sweetness on the palate with hint of pecan on palate. Too sweet for me but I'll give them their due!

Clear deep, dark red
Sweet syrupy aroma with caramel, brown sugar and light spicing.

More sweet than bitter, Not much pecan or even nutty flavor.
Full smooth body with lively carbonation that is, perhaps, a little too high.

O: a bit to sweet and syrupy, with insufficient input from the pecans, which seem to new missing in action.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown. Medium khaki head. Settles to a thin collar. Then nothing.

Smell - Lots of vanilla. Nutty. Chocolatey. Brown sugar. Boozy.

Taste - Buckets of vanilla. Very sweet. Brown sugar. Caramel. Sweetness dies down into a nuttier flavor. Drops off in the back end. Boozy nutty finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Big and boozy.

Overall - Tasty. A little bit of a mess, but tasty.

Have been sitting on this for a couple of years and finally got around to cracking it with some friends. Was a little worried when we opened it because it was a slight gusher, but not too bad. Smell was a bit of the pecans. Taste was sweet and nutty. Slight vanilla? Really nice. Decent carbonation, but not too bad. Good overall mouthfeel. Glad this turned out well.
