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.

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.

Had on cask in Dallas. Smooth with nut flavors well balanced with malt. Surprising light drinking for its complexity. Its a cool night in Big D and this sits very well

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft... This beer rocks!Ö Pours black with a small, fizzy, khaki head. Loads of chocolate and vanilla in both the aroma and flavor. More full-bodied than the version treated with cocoa nibs and blueberries. Lively carbonation. Well-balanced. Much better than their Whiskey Barrel Aged Double Pecan Porter. Probably the best porter Iíve ever tried!

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 A deliciously rich pecan aroma, with a malty hop flavor followed by a more bitter hop finish. Extremely dark with a thin creamy head.

Beautiful caramel head, with a subtle and delicious hint of chocolate pecan. One of the best porters I've had.
