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 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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2010
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.

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.

Sammer (1096) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2010
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.

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.
