JW77 with a growler at cigar city. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is light chcocolate, roasted malt, weak coffee, and some earthy nutiness. Flavor is roasty and light chocolate. I wish I could taste more pecans. But it was still pretty good.

Thanks to whoever left a full growler at CCB after Big Sound release.
Pours black with beige head, light golden lacing.
Aroma of roasted malts, light pecan nose.
Taste, nutty / pecan with chocolate malts, light abv an palate with some coffee notes in the finish and some faint bitterness.
Very tasty and gets better after a few pints and after it sits outside for a few.

Had on tap with Cavie while visiting Texas. Decent brew, but it needs more pronounced pecan flavor to really tout that name around.

A solid porter. I think the Pecans might be a gimmick because I couldnít taste them, or even a hint of nuttiness. I also drank it outside when it was 100F, so I may not have enjoyed it as much as if I was sitting in a dark pub when its 50F outside.

On draft at Uncle Billyís. Real impressed with this porter...very nice malt, coffee and chocolate aromas and flavors...with a touch of sweetness on the end, but not too much.

I am very partial to Porters. And this Porter lands near the Meantime Porter as far as my favorites. In my top 2, most certainly. This Porter is good in a much different way. It has a great chocolate/coffee aroma to it, and has a more malty taste to it. The first batch of it I tried wasnít nearly as dry as the last batch I tasted, but in both cases, the beer didnít disappoint. When you read Pecan, donít expect sweet. It is still very much a Porter, but with a little bit of added malt to it. Which some will like, and other wonít.

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.

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.
