Draught at ginger man. Really nice oily black with a tan head. Roasty malt and chocolate aroma. Some burnt grain taste but maybe thatís the pecan, sweet chocolate and smooth mouthfeel. I really enjoy this.

Draught at Opal Divineís Freehouse, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours black with a small semi-lasting creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, some coffee & chocolate and oddly enough, peas. Flavour follows the aroma but thereís something about it that doesnít quite work for me, the pecans perhaps? Itís also a bit watery. Average bodied. Just good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
From notes, 5/4/11:
Had this one on tap at The Draft Pick in Austin.
Aroma: Coffee, roasted malts, slight chocolaty sweetness, and of course, pecans.
Appearance: Poured a deep dark brown into a room temp pint glass with minimal head. Tan head quickly dissipated and left slight spiderweb lacing.
Taste: Loved the nutty roastiness and coffee flavors true to the style.
Palate: Thick for a porter, low carbonation, and damn smooth.
Overall: Definitely one of my favorite porters to date.

Tried this on tap at The Flying Saucer in Houston, TX. Big tasty porter balanced with malty sweetness and bitter hops. Caramel, cocoa and nut notes.

Dark brown pour small dense brown head with good lacing.
Roasted malt light chocolates a hint of lactose light nuttiness but I wouldnít have said pecan.
Good palate nicely coated but a touch to thin for what I wanted.
Great flavor a dry nuttiness finishes pexans in the aftertaste a good dark roast malt dominates smooth and mellow swallow some light cocoa and a touch of alcohol.
Very good beer.

Darn good beer. Aroma is nutty dark malts, roast, coffee and a slight hint of buttery pecan, maybe even candy sugar in a slight hint? Appearance is black with a nice tan head. taste is bitter and nutty with not much sweetness but just enough. Palate is porter bit thinner than a stout. overall this is a great fall beer.
