This is one of the better pecan ales I have tried, and is pretty pleasant. Not a huge brown ale fan, but the pecan flavors really help round it out a bit.

i like when beers with nuts dont try to be dessert, and this one doesnt. its not all sweet and caramely and trying to be a pie. its a brown ale at its base, and the base beer is pretty average. its thin, lacking deep rich chocolate malt character, and certainly weak in carbonation. looks more like an amber ale almost than a brown, but what is impressive here is the use of nuts. im not sure if mashing with them is standard or not, but they really come through in the flavor of the beer, especially in the finish, where i expect the chocolate malt to be. the nuttiness is pronounced, its earthy and neutral in feel but a little sweet on the tongue. its longer lasting than the grain flavors too, so it comes really exposed in a good way on the finish. i think the base beer could be improved. its almost watery in body, but the use of nuts and the way the flavor comes through is quite impressive and delicious. not the best beer in the traditional sense, but a cool technique has proved useful. i always admire that.

Clear dark brown body with a 1/2" of off white head. Slight and spotty lacing.

Smells nutty as hell. Obviously, pecans. Light brown sugar aroma.

Clearly pecan flavor. There's a faint sweetness that has an aspartame aftertaste.

Light body, active carbonation.

A fine beer, but nothing special. It's overly nutty, even for a brown ale.
