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!

Pours dark brown/black into the glass with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate and nuttiness. Flavor is chocolate and coffee followed by extreme astringency which I can only guess comes from the pecan. Light to medium body, would not drink often.

Mora2000 (5650) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Tried on tap at the Fort Worth Flying Saucer. Pours black with basically no head. Aroma is roasted malt along with a little bit of coffee and some pecan nuttyness. Flavor is similar to the aroma with the pecans being the star of the show. Medium mouthfeel with minimal carbonation. Very drinkable and one of the best beers I have tried from Texas.

Pours a deep, rich mahogany with a nice, off-white head and a nose of coffee, roasted chocolate, and ground roasted nuts. Flaovr is a nice coffee/pecan balanced by chocolate syrup and a roasted malt finish. Thick and chrewy mouthfeel. I wasnít expecting much but this was a pleasant surprise. Great beer!

achtungpv (210) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2009
Dark with a thin tan head. Up front roasted hops and pecans. Bit of caramel on the back end. Little aftertaste. Very good beer. A bit thinner than I expect from a porter but very enjoyable.

kramer (4895) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2009
22 oz handbottle. Pours an opaque dark brown body with a bit of light passing thru on the edges under a one finger foamy brown head that fell to a thin film. Really great chocolaty nose with some roast and nuttiness, not sure Iíd say pecans, but itís nutty. Some coffee as well. The flavor walks the line between a Nut Brown and a Porter right down the middle. Some roast and coffee with a moderate residual sweetness. Medium bodied with a bit of fizzy carbonation and a little sticky clinginess on the back end. Nice depth of flavor from front to back. A really great Porter, not sure if I would have ever guessed pecans, but it is damn tasty.
