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!

Theydon_Bois (17251) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Cask at the Ginger Man, Houston, 21/05/13. Mid black with a medium tan head that retains well. Nose is roast malt, vanilla, syrup, sugars, chocolate. Taste comprises pecan, roast malt, lactose, light chocolate notes. Medium bodied but a little on the thin/watery side - certainly for a 6.8% ABV beer, moderate carbonation, soft roast in the finish. Drinkable porter, let down by lack of body and no great depth of flavour, not one Iíd look to in the future.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
A: The pour is a dark, dark brown color with a fingerís worth (or so) of tan head. S: Plenty of roast comes through right away with a bit of bananas, which I was not expecting. The nuttiness is there and provides some interesting sweetness, along with a chocolate note. T: A very nice roasty base for this beer. The flavor profile is sort of all over the place: sweet bananas, chocolate, pecans, coffee, and perhaps some molasses too. M: The body is medium with a somewhat low carbonation, but it doesnít detract from the beer at all. D: Iím very glad to have finally tried this one, and to find that it was as good as I expected. A very enjoyable beer that I would have again.

Ferris (12936) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Draft - Coffee and nuts. Jet black with a thin beige head. Chocolate, coffee and a light nutty sweetness. Not sure how big pecans play a part but nice.

Scopey (12712) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Keg at Yardhouse, Houston. It pours darkest brown, near black with a sturdy tan head. The aroma is rich roasted malt, plenty of toasted nuts, a good hit of coffee, treacle and cacao nibs. The taste is bitter, dry roasted malt, toasted nuts, earthy, pecan pie, chewy malt, coffee grounds, cocoa, fudge, toffee and a bit of alcohol. The finish is dry and toasty. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Could be done with a bit more depth, but itís pretty decent anyhow.

Handbottle from the brewery. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a medium dark brown head. Decent head retention and nice rings of lacing. Aroma is bitter roasted malts, faint leafy hops, nuts and maple. Taste is pecan pie... pecans, brown sugar... leafy hop notes, slight fruity noted.

Dogbrick (11641) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Uncle Billyís Brew & Que in Austin. The beer pours a dark brownish-black color with a medium light brown head that dissipates steadily. Patchy lacing on the glass. Light roasted malt aroma with a touch of coffee. Medium, soft body with flavors of malt, milk chocolate and mild coffee. Very little if any nutty character actually. The finish is malty with a light coffee bitterness left behind. Overall a decent Porter, but kind of a head-scratcher as to calling it a Pecan Porter. I know those nuts are expensive but this could have used more.

daknole (10883) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2009
JW77 with a growler at cigar city. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is light chcocolate, roasted malt, weak coffee, and some earthy nutiness. Flavor is roasty and light chocolate. I wish I could taste more pecans. But it was still pretty good.

hopscotch (10657) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2012
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!
