Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Bourbon Street Maple Pecan is a nut brown ale that is aged in Bourbon barrels. Our Maple Pecan is brewed with a combination of pale, munich, biscuit, and caramel malts. Roasted pecans are also added to the brew for a nutty flavor and aroma. We add maple syrup in the brewhouse as well to give the beer a sweet flavor and full body. After fermentation and aging the beer is transferred into the bourbon barrels. It is then aged for another 8 weeks to absorb all of the flavors from the barrels. The result is brown ale that blends the light flavors of nuts, maple syrup, and baking bread from the beer with the warming flavors of wood and vanilla from the bourbon barrels.

I really like this beer. Very surprised by the lower BA rating. My bomber poured into a tulip had gods head with lacing. The bourbon is there but not at all over powering. I taste the maple, but it is not syrupy. Great finish. I wish I had bought more than one bottle. Sorry but not even sure where I bought it. Probably Total Wine.

Poured from the tap into a tulip glass. The appearance is a semi clear brown color with an almost non existent head. The aroma is maple. The taste follows the nose.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a medium brown color and a hazy texture. There was a small amount of creamy, off white head that quickly dissipated. Fair lacing.

S: A kind of underwhelming aroma of pecans, malt, bourbon, maple syrup, and vanilla.

T: Tasted of a whole lot of malt (very much omnipresent), a tinge of bourbon (not nearly enough), a little bit of vanilla, some pecans, a hint of maple syrup, and a bready quality. This is a great idea for a flavor, but it doesn't come off. None of the ingredients seem to be powerful enough. A little weak.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Kind of a missed opportunity with this beer. Could have been a bit better.

From the older bottle, it pours a clear brown with a modest head, soon reducing to a ring. Some nuts and a touch of maple in the nose....and mouth. Interesting beer.

Not my thing, ive had lots of different whiskey barrel beers..

This taste like watery bourbon, just buy some good tasting bourbon instead of this beer imo.

Split between perforated seidel and stein. Minimal head that gives way to very little lace. Nice dark amber color.

Nose of the barrel.

Taste is sweet, neither maple nor pecan come much in to play, but the bourbon barrel is delightful. Not unlike aged scotch ale.

Mouth is a little shallow, leaves you dry.

This type of taste has been done better elsewhere, but it's something to try more than once if you like barrel-aged ales.

Pours - cloudy brown color decent off white head that dissipates quickly, no lacing at all.

Smell - The first thing i smell is the bourbon the maple is pretty subtle but is there I also for some reason get a little coconut after taste. Also a little bit of oak.

Taste - I am getting a little more maple in the taste it is pretty balanced with the bourbon. I am also getting some oak flavor. Also getting a little bit of the pecan not much though.

Feel - The feel is a bit too thin, slightly dry on the finish.

Overall - A decent beer wished for a little more maple and pecan.
