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!

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.

Had many times, surprised it hasnt been rated. On tap at gourmands austin. Dark pour caramel head. Typical stout/porter coffee nose, caramel and toffee. Why is this one so coffee heavy? Not much pecan. Not what I expected. Still good.

Didnít really drink beer until my friend told me to branch out. And this is one of the first beers I tried and now porters and stouts are my new favorite drink.
