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!

July 1st Sunday. New brewery which is always cool. Black in color. The pecans really add a nice depth of nuttiness to the roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Pretty nice.

Pours a deep dark brown, almost black. Nuts, cocoa, and a little toffee on the aroma. Same on the palate. Finishes with just a hint of sweetness.

Poured draft at The Esquire Tavern in San Antonio, Texas. Nice toffee and chocolate notes on the nose. Mouthfeel lacks a bit but still nice. Served a little cold so that might have something to do with it. Nice bitter finish, not over powering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft. Pours a deep rich dark brown. Thick velvety head. Looks like an oatmeal stout. Not much aroma but it is on nitro. Smooth velvety texture. Really seems like there are a lot of oats in this one. Mild taste. Notes of oats and hints of nuts.

Enjoyed on tap at Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX while watching the new 300 movie, with that weird Eva Green sex scene. Appearance is a rich dark brown with a moderate white head. Aroma is nutty with hints of caramel, malty, sweet and decadent. Taste is great, nice rich porter with great pecan/hazelnut notes. Really nice one here.
