S: aromas evoke pecan pie with hints of nuts, mild pie crust, faint chocolate and alcohol.

L: bright deep dark brown in the glass under a 1/2" tan cap with poor retention. Nuts and mild chocolate seasoned lightly with brown sugar start the flavors but the aftertaste really does suggest pecan pie but not in a cloying or overbearing way. The malt flavors are medium, the hop flavors are medium low to low, and the hop bitterness is medium low. The fermentation flavors are medium low. Alcohol is medium and is just a touch hot but is not overly harsh.

F: The body is medium high and the carbonation is medium.

O: An interesting beer that succeeds by not going overboard.

2016 variety. Pours a pitch black color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is non-existant. Lacing is mild. Has more of a java and chocolate aroma to me. Don't get the pecan as much. Pecan more evident on the taste with some java and mild chocolate at the end. More heavy bodied with mild carbonation.

Black with a dark tan short head.

This is a decently roasty porter with a slightly sweet but dry finish.

I'm not getting an easily detectable hit of pecan or pecan pie in any way, which I suppose for many is a good thing since overly sweet beers can be a turn off. Not a bad nearly basic porter.
