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!

On tap at Motherís 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.

I tried both the regular and cask versions. Cask was less carbonated which I thought let the pecan flavor come through better. Even from a regular keg, a rich, flavorful porter.

Great porter. I wasnít smelling or tasting the Pecan flavor, but other than that, all the notes of a great porter.

Very dark pour. I like the smell better than the taste. Taste is bitter but not too bad. The aftertaste has more flavor than the initial taste.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 re- rate 04/14. raised score from 3.4......really enjoyed it on draft this time - much more so than previous two times; will try again to see if this is a 4 as it was this time. much more flavor profile this time - got nuts, chocolate and others, low carbonation. great stuff - would give 4 based off this tasting but leaving lower due to previous ratings............................waited awhile for this one; had on tap at whisky cake in Plano.. no aroma; very dark pour; perfect thinckness/mouthfeel - dissapointed in the taste though... smooth on front end, is that smokeyness (probably it is the pecan flavor)?? too strong/bitter on back end - I taste no banana or chocolate like others..dissapointed re rate 10/11 - had draft at Plano Gingerman; more flavor but still nothing outstantding - nothing stands out...

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.
