3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, nearly opaque black pour which reveals itself to be dark red on examination in bright light. Scant, tan head leaves a coarse lace. Coffee nose, medium body, balance nutty bittersweet middle and finish. I would drink it again, but only a pint at a time - a niche porter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a very dark brown with a medium creamy light tan head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a roasted chocolate and nuts. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet roasted coffee flavor and nice lingering finish. Hides the alcohol well making it very drinkable. A very good Porter from (512).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Fort Worth Gingerman. Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is coffee, roasted nuts, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Taste is about the same with the chocolate a little more upfront. Pecan finally pulls through to the forefront in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Draught House. Pours a dark brown body with tan highlights. No head as it was given to me. Aroma is light fresh coffee, some caramel sweetness and roasty. Flavor follows the aromas and adds some bitter-sweet chocolate, a VERY faint nutty-ness and a nice mild bitter finish. Nicely balanced porter thatís easy to drink. However, I didnít get a whole lot of pecans for what itís worth.

Reviewed 1/30/2010 (Draft at Flying Saucer, Houston, TX):
Pours a very dark reddish brown color body, small tan color head. Roasted aroma, some coffee, some sweetness too. Slight pecanness. Sweet taste, roasted. Very sweet, maybe pecan, maybe. Very roasty flavor, very watery. Too much alcohol or something. Ashy. Not a fan. Dark fruit, too much.

Growler from slimchill! Pours black with a small grayish brown head. Aroma is full of dark grains with just a slight hint of pecan on the nose. Flavor again is full of dark grain and a bit of bitter chocolate with a slight bit of pecan in the aftertaste.

I like the sound of a pecan beer unfortunately I didnít detect any pecan or nutty flavors at all. Was still a good porter. Maybe a tad on the dry side. Looked great. Donít know if Iíll order another though; was sort of bored w/ it about 3/4 through the pint. Thereís more interesting stuff to choose from on the wall.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Roasted malts, black patent malts, somewhat rich nutty notes, touch of chocolate, a little sweetness. Pours nearly black with a creamy whispy tan head and spots of lace. Nutty, roasty, earthy, light underlying sweetness. Somewhat dry and a little black malty notes left on palate. Solidly drinkable and rather complex. Very enjoyable.
