Thatís right, the first seasonal offering (of many to come ) from (512) Brewing Company was brewed this week. Itís a Robust Porter brewed with Pecans. Look for this beer to be released sometime in late October - We canít release it until thereís at least a hint of cool weather in the air! This nearly black Porter is made with US 2-row and Crystal malts along with Bairdís Chocolate and Black malts. Mild smooth hop bitterness is contrasted with sharp black malt bitterness. It has a full body and malty sweetness balanced with subtle pecan aroma and flavor from locally grown pecans. Yet another true Austin original!

Draft in pint glass. Pours black with a thick tan head. The aroma is mostly roasted malts with hints of candy and coffee. Taste is very sweet with roasted malts contributing the most - notes of chocolate/coffee. Little bitter taste to bring sweetness back a little and very slight alcohol. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with minimal carbonation. A very easy drink that tastes great- will definitely get again.

This pretty, classic porter from the Peopleís Democratic Republic of Austin poured out a deep black color with a fine aroma of roasted malt, burnt sugar and coffee. The taste is robust and somewhat tart at the front end, with chocolate and coffee. Not much pecan. A nice, mid-alcohol palate with low carbonation, this beer tasted better (to me) as the pint was consumed. And the weather, still cool, was perfect for it.

Dark chocolate, light smoke, caramel. Pretty burnt and bitter taste for me though. I donít get much pecan either. I wish it tasted like a pecan pie

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2011 On cask at the Flying Saucer in Addison-poured into a goblet.nice white head that eventually disappeared atop a nice coffee color. the pecan comes through in the aroma as well as the flavor and is just right. roasted coffee and slight chocolate with the slightest ting of hops.

On tap at Little Woodrows in Rice Village. Pours opaque with frothy tan head. Aroma is coffee, smoke, and toasted malt. One swig and this was a real surprise. Very smooth and complex. Delicious and easy to drink, with a reminder of Stoneís smoked porter without as many hops, just a smooth, drinkable, outstanding porter.

Keg. Pours dark, dark, dark -- the head on this beer is darker than some beers that claim to be porters. Smells like roast coffee and just a faint hint of pecans. Same faint hint on the tongue; mostly itís about a creamy, bitter porter with great notes of coffee and licorice. Mouthfeel is surprisingly clean. Delicious.

On tap at the Cedar Door in Austin. Lovely dark brown, nearly black pour with beige head. Nose shows nice roast, some chocolate, mild sweet coffee notes, and a hint of pecans. The nuttiness comes out more in the taste. Light palate. Unique and tasty.

[Tap] Pours an opaque black color with some light brown lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, burnt sugars, some light coffee and vanilla. The taste is more robust. Chocolate, coffee grounds, caramel and smoke abound. Fainter notes of vanilla, marshmallow and charred wood. I did get some pecan in there, but honestly I probably would have missed it if it werenít in the name. Very nice palate with a low carbonation level. This would be really great if it were cooler around here this time of the year.

Nose is roast, cocoa, light coffee, dark maltiness. Flavor is overly roasty with slightly burnt aspects and some nuttiness. Bittersweet.
