GABF 2011. Black with a small tan head. Big aroma of chocolate malt, roasted pecans, and a weird grassy hop tone thrown in...still smells great. Nice chocolaty pecan taste, with some toasty grains. Body is a little light though, and isn’t as sweet as I feel it should be.

Roasted malts, pecan aroma! This is a delicious beer! If you start with this beer, finish with this beer. The taste will spoil all other flavors and you’ll just end up ordering another anyway!

Extreme smokey taste overpowers the underlying pecan charm. Drink it slow, the finish lasts...

Draft... Dark brown, almost black, very light tan head, only leaves a ring, disappointing.... Great nose, brown sugar, roast, molasses and a hint of vanilla, really well rounded... Tastes a little boring, flavors to muted and mixed together, roasted chocolate with a bit of vanilla, its good but wish something came to the forefront more

On tap at the Flying Saucer in my home-town of Houston mutha-fuckin Texas.. Chocolate brown pour with mocha head. Aromas of pecans. Smooth and mellow with roasted malt, pecan, and mocha flavors. Much better than the BA version.....

On tap at Houston flying saucer. P is nnear black with a frighth brown head. Nose is sweet Malta and vanilla with the full bodied nuttiness balancing nicely. Taste is similar with the roast from the Malta and the nuttyness starring the show. Well balanced warm beer. Great treat

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Mother’s Sports Bar in Austin, TX. Dark chestnut pour under a short but sturdy and long lasting head with a good deal of lacing. Sweet and roasty aroma. Initially, this tastes like a classic porter with plenty of roasted malt, coffee, caramel, bittersweet chocolate and a touch of vanilla but then you get a ribbon of nutty pecan which adds a welcome sweetness. Rich texture and a medium long finish where you get a little hoppy bitter kick. Impressive brew.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Very dark brown with a puffy, lacing, tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, pecan and roasted malt. Taste was nutty and chocolate malty with a nice coffee-like bitterness and a subtle smoke flavor. medium-full bodied; smooth. Very nice.
