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.

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.
