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!

Growler thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a black body and a tan head that fades. Aroma of roast, coffee and pecan. Taste is pecan and mocha. Pretty straight forward, but good porter. Light bubbles. A lot better use of pecans than Shiner...gawd.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Uncle Billyís Brew & Que in Austin. The beer pours a dark brownish-black color with a medium light brown head that dissipates steadily. Patchy lacing on the glass. Light roasted malt aroma with a touch of coffee. Medium, soft body with flavors of malt, milk chocolate and mild coffee. Very little if any nutty character actually. The finish is malty with a light coffee bitterness left behind. Overall a decent Porter, but kind of a head-scratcher as to calling it a Pecan Porter. I know those nuts are expensive but this could have used more.

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.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2009
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.
