4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served in shaker at Roverís on 5.28.09- non transparent black in color, nice creamy lightly darkened tan head. Aroma of a roasted malt, coffee, brown sugar, and a note of pecans. Hits the mouth with a nice wide body, malt is there from the first sip- which is extermely pleasant, dark chocolate notes intertwined with sweetness and pecans everywhere, finish is sticky and hangs around like bad company- which is good. Yet another solid brew from this new brewery which hasnít had a slow start.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler courtesy of kiefdog. Pours dark with full mocha head. The aroma is malt balls, roastiness, a touch of pecan infused coffee, a dash of burnt malts and a hint of earthiness. The taste is much the same with a load of roasty malts and moving into malt balls, coffee and a hint of pecan. To midway and into the finish I get notes of chocolate, roastiness and fading burnt malts. Good stuff with plenty going on.

Delicious beer. Extremely yummy. I am not sure when or how they add the pecans but it does have the flavor, and it melds quite well into a robust porter. Great job guys.

Thanks kiefdog for sharing this growler. Pours black with an off-white head. nose is roast, dark chocolate, ripe dark fruit, and some hoppiness. Flavor is roasty goodness with hops, bitterness, and some nut flavor. I guess when I think pecan I think of pralines and sugared pecans. This is a darn good porter, but I donít think much of pecan. Medium-bodied and enjoyable in its own right.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Black as night falls, nice mocha head. The nut on the nose come through a tad. You also get roasty, chocolate on the nose.
The mouthfeel is that of silky with some medium body. Smoke comes in just slighty then the roasted chocolate and on the finish the pecan makes a cameo.
