1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Iíve seen great reviews on this beer, however I was not overly impressed. The color and lack of head had me thinking that this beer would be full and flavorful. In reality I found this beer to be light in body, long on finish but disappointing on the palate. It was reminiscent of old watered down coffee. I didnít get much Pecan but was left with a very dry, tannic feeling. Not a bad beer but also not overly impressive.

Draft 4/14/10 (Opal Divineís-Freehouse)-Pours black with no head. Aroma of burnt malt and coffee. Taste of coffee, chocolate, ad burnt malt. This medium to full bodied brew was darn tasty but just lacked carbonation.

Poured into a small glass at Ginger Man in Austin. First smells were of Pecan and maybe some chocolate. Taste was very malty but had enough bitterness for my liking. Very dark brown with a creamy head.

poured deep brown from tap...aroma is nicely done...full of sweet malt, roasted nuts, vanilla...yummy! flavor is also seriously good...loads of sweet, lightly toasted malts, pecan flavor, light chocolate, vanilla, hint of smokiness. palate was nearly perfect for the style...easy drinking, moderately thick, smooth. was interested to try this one and it firmly exceeded expectations! canít wait to try this again.

Nice balance and uniqueness. Great roasted malt and nut flavor. Good dark coffee color with decent head. Palate is somewhat thinner than anticipated and works better as it warms up. Similar tastes with a strong roasted presence and pecans. Some sweetness. Little alcohol presence.

Dark brown pour. Light brown head. Very roasty and nutty aroma. Flavor is harsh almost erstery followed by a more mellow malty finish. Pecans are light if noticeable at all.

Tap at Opalís, 2010. Clear, dark brown pour with red highlights. Scant tan head leaving minimal lace. Coffee nose, medium body, nutty and roasty middle and finish. Fun a pint at a sitting.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is smokey, with sweet malt notes. Pours a dark brown with a rapidly disappearing tan head and no lacing. The taste is initially smokey with a nutty finish and aftertaste. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall, better than I remember. Smooth and tasty. Would drink again.
