Noa Pecan Mud CakeNoa Pecan Mud Cake
Notes: Previously called Aon Pecan Mud Cake.

When I was 12 I dreamed of becoming a pastry chef. Call this a creative outlet for that dream, and a beer that set the spark for similar beers to come. Thick, rich and excessively decadent, this beer aims to bring back childhood memories. Brewed with aromas.

Brewed at Brouwerij de Molen in the Netherlands.

Served from the tap in a flared pokal at Consume.

Pours a deep midnight hickory topped by maybe a finger of beige foam. The nose comprises chocolate syrup, mixed nuts, mild salted caramel, and a twinge of what may or may not be coffee. The taste brings in more of the same, everything taking a decidedly sweeter turn. The body is a hefty medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a thick-ish feel. A pretty tasty pastry boi, especially if you're into nuttiness and unrepentant sweetness.

Available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger, which previously stocked the Bourbon BA version. ABV is 11,0%. Pitch black colour, moderate brown head. Aroma of roast malts, caramel, molasses, syrup, chocolate, vanilla, pecan nuts. Sweet and smooth flavour, with the same elements as the aroma, also notes of coffee and moderate bittering hops.

Shimmering black with a big brown head. Thick fudge crushes it on the nose, with nuts, caramel and roasted barley. Taste is much the same, nuttiness get larger with each sip bringing out earth and smoke accent to the giant dark chocolate fudge. Gets bitter over time with sweet finish, good for a few ounces but a whole can seems like a chore. Feel is chewy, thick, viscous, super heavy and roasted with sweet edges.

Thick dark stout. Smells dark, sweet and lovely. Taste is vanilla, pecan, coffee, nutty and milky. Mouth feel is thick, creamy and sweet. A superb beer, must try :)

330ml bottle from Morrisons supermarket (£8):
Jet black with a thin, dark tan coloured head that fades to a patchy surface lacing soon after. The nose is sweet with milk chocolate, vanilla & a nutty aroma coming through then some darker fruits, smoked notes & sugars, all complimenting each other well. It's a little stronger tasting with dark chocolate & sugars initially, some milky touches do follow though with a bit of coffee then the same vanilla & nut flavours from the nose. It's very well balanced & full-bodied with some alcohol showing & giving it a warming, boozy finish that works well with the soft carbonation; excellent stuff.

look: half a finger tan coloured head which dissipates at a reasonable speed, beer is jet black, no light bleeding through whatsoever, ominously black.

smell: roasted smokey malt, caramel, lots of nutty flavour, vanilla, milk and dark chocolate, hint of coffee, lots of dark fruit, cherry and raisin, nicely sweet, most inviting.

taste: massive malt flavours at first, meaty and smokey but also sweet, caramel, lots of dark chocolate, lots of raisin, good bit of espresso, hint of vanilla, maybe a hint of honey too, big wallop of bitterness on the finish, chocolate flavours linger.

feel: medium to full bodied, lightly carbonated, thick and syrupy, lots of lingering bitterness on the back of the tongue, masks it’s strength remarkably well but still a lil warming of the back of the throat, still very much a sipper, perhaps a bit thin in parts.

overall: although this is still a very nice beer, it is somewhat of a letdown based off all i’ve read about it, although it is still enjoyable.

Aroma: Chocolate brownie, caramel, vanilla, coconut, pecan.

Appearance: Visually viscous. Looks like a stout, not much tan head (I would assume from lactose)

Flavor: Out of this world. Brownie meets German Chocolate Cake icing. Sweet, creamy, very well done.

Body/Texture: Very full bodied and viscous which adds to the sensation reminiscent of brownie batter. Not too carbonated, and that works for it.

Aftertaste: Finishes with a slightly boozy chocolate malt and Carmel milkshake.

Overall: One of my favorite beers ever. Creative, artfully done, and quite elegant. Well worth the price too.

Black in color with no penetration to light. There’s a fingernail of brown around the rim. The aroma is of chocolate and pecans. I’m tasting dark chocolate and pecans. The mouth is very sticky and dry.

Somewhat thick, fudgy. half-knuckle cafe foam head. Chocolate cake, cinnamon, vanilla ice cream, hot fudge sundae with pecans. Artificial flavoring lends a coating that’s a little unsettling, still smooth and full-bodied, very sweet. Other than the faint sickly sweet artificiality, a good pastry stout.

Pours a midnight black that allows no light to shine through. Thick reddish mocha colored head that falls away fairly quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is fudge brownie. Flavor follows the nose, dark chocolate, a blend of sweetness and tartness with just a faint touch of bitterness in the finish. No hint of the high abv. Feel is thick and creamy. Overall a super pastry stout.

Pours dark with a half finger of tan foam that quickly dissipates. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, and brown sugar. On the palate dark chocolate and coffee give way to brown sugar and a touch of bourbon. Just how an exceptional Pecan Pie should taste!

12oz can. Poured out a thick, opaque, back color with a small, light brown head of foam. It smelled of pecan, chocolate, coffee and toffee. Sweet chocolate with nutty flavors. Some bitterness for balance.

A thanks to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, some nuts. Taste is alcohol, chocolate, more alcohol, some nuts, light sweetness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall it's not bad, but just a bit to boozy for me.

Solo 12 oz. can, soon to be followed by a solo 12 oz. bottle w/barrel. Sounds good.

The pour is black black, vinyl Beastie Boys circa 1986 black. The nose is mostly chocolate with a touch of cracked fall acorn. Not bad.

AON Pecan Mud Cake can be reviewed in one sentence. Nutty French Silk Chocolate Pie. Thick. No problem getting rid of half the can.

This is really good that borders on excellent. Can’t wait to try the barrel version. In six minutes.

Completely black, very little froth, thick and syrupy in texture. Smells like heaven in a glass. Tastes pretty great too: coffee, toffee, chocolate, a hint of herbal bitterness. Actually tastes very similar to some Amari I’ve had, but in beer form. It is just a touch too syrupy for me, but otherwise it’s excellent.

Pours completely black, little carbonation. Brown/orange head dissapears quickly.

Smells like a brownie. Lots of chocolate. Sweet. Amazing.

Tasre follows the nose with an extra hoppy note that balances it.

Mouthfeel is not so sticky nor dense. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

Amazing pastry stout
