Draft @ Double Horn Brewing. Pours black with a half finger of nut brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasty pecans. Taste is light bitter. Coffee and pecans. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long coffee-chocolate finish. Overall, not bad. I would drink this again given the chance.

Aroma and appearance were okay, though nothing special. Taste was more like coffee than pecan; aftertaste was ash-like. Not one of my favorites.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2012 Beautiful, gorgeous black drink with a cappuccino head that settles at about a half centimeter of thickness. The aroma is sweet with notes of toffee, chocolate, caramel, roasted barley, and of course, nuts. The taste is mellow and gentle on the tongue, following these notes. The pecan flavor is brought out nicely. Very nice body for a porter. I really like it. Not one-dimensional at all.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz draught pint. I smell coffee in the aroma. Black color, light head and lacing. Taste reminds me more of coffee than pecans. Tastes too black and bitter for me, but not quite full enough to be a session beer. Just OK compared to other porters, I like it about as much as I like flavored coffees (not very much)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown pour with light tan head and lace. Aroma is mostly coffee with a hinto pecan. Light sweet malt, coffee and a finishing pecan that is subtle but there for sure. A tad thin and watery but very original beer.
