COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

[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.

Cask conditioned. Nose is vanilla and cocoa notes. Big full mouthfeel with terrific caramel sweetness. The pecan definitely comes through in the flavor, especially on the midpallete and aftertaste, with just a hint of nutty bitterness with terrific balance. Need to find a few bottles to take back to Colorado.

On draught at the Holy Grail in Plano, TX. Black pour with a thin head. Aroma is roasted coffee and pecans. Taste is pecans, chocolate and brown sugar. Creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish. Very, very good.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Tap. Flying Saucer. San Antonio. An almost black beer with red around the edges. The aroma has a lot of chocolate, some roast, and just enough nuttiness to notice. The taste was again a lot of chocolate, some roast and a nutty taste that I canít say was easy to identify as pecans. The most dominant flavor was chocolate and the palate was a little thin and not as creamy as Iíd like in a porter. Overall a solid TX brew.

llcooldave (1163) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Tap at Flying Saucer Houston: simply black in the glass. Strong roasted malt aroma. Flavor is very chocolaty with a touch of roasted coffee and a nice nutty aftertaste. I can taste the pecans in the mouth-feel. Overall, this is just ridiculously delicious. My only hope is that they used TX pecans to brew this.

Pershing (487) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Pours black with a medium tan head. Roasted Malt aroma. Did not detect any pecans in the aroma or taste. The alcohol is on the high end for a porter. Dry clean taste on the palate. I was very impressed with the craftmanship in this brew. Finally, an excellent porter made in Texas.

Black pour, nice head and lace. Smokey coffee aroma. Smoky roasted malts dominate, with a chocolatey, coffe flavor. Nice low carb, thick mouth, with a hint of caramel. Tasty brew.
