It starts out like a pecan bread flavor and then hours down smooth with a bit of a creamy feel to it. Fuller like a bock, but very refreshing on even the hottest summer days.

There is an overwhelming pecan flavor that, if you were on a mission for a pecan beer, is exactly what you were looking for. It's extremely smooth, with a bold, organic color. It has a balanced, manageable head. Overall it's a fantastic flavored beer that I would have no qualms with enjoying in excess.

A: Reddish brown with a 1/2 inch off white head, spotty lacing

S: Nutty Pecan pie, caramel, toast

T: Sweet candied pecans up front, gives way to a nutty bread malty flavor, the pecan stays in the aftertaste

M: Medium

O: Great beer in my opinion. Just as advertised with the pecan flavor really coming on strong. I for one am a fan of a sweeter dark beer like this one and I enjoyed it immensely.

Pours a clear light brownish pecan wood color with off-white head. Smells like candied pecans; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with pecan nuts, caramel sweetness, and some bread.

Clear dark amber to light brown colored beer with a small tan colored head.

Smell is unique. Very strong toffee and butternut squash scent. Extremely nutty smelling. Strong aroma of toasted pound cake with some pecan aroma. Smells like a dessert.

Starts out sweet and buttery with a strong nut flavor. Taste like a pound cake with nuts. Strong taste of cake and vanilla along with nuts. A unique flavor to be sure.

Mouthfeel is good.

Interesting beer. I suggest you try it but don't try and drink a whole six pack of it. A Tasty dessert beer.

Brown and Murky in color and appearance. Smells like toasted almond coffee. Nutty. Hmmm. Creamy. Kind of like a cream soda beer. Fairly dry. Not bad at all.
