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!

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.

Tejas (882) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2010
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.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2010
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.

Growler shared by suzyg. Pours a rich black with thick coffee tan head. Coffee, slight sweet cocoa, roasty malt, vanilla and a nice light nuttiness. Body feel is nice and light yet full with depth and a creamy carb feel. Balanced with roast, coffee, slight sweetness and a identifiable touch of nuttiness. Flavorful yet sessionable, nice stuff.

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.
