That’s right, the first seasonal offering (of many to come ) from (512) Brewing Company was brewed this week. It’s a Robust Porter brewed with Pecans. Look for this beer to be released sometime in late October - We can’t release it until there’s 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 Baird’s 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!

Poured into a small glass at Ginger Man in Austin. First smells were of Pecan and maybe some chocolate. Taste was very malty but had enough bitterness for my liking. Very dark brown with a creamy head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On nitro in Denton. Sweet pecan pie filling, syrupy, a bit too much for me. Good flavors but really saccharine.

Draught, smallish head, opaque black color, aroma of aromatic coffee, dark bread and mellow nutty backbone, flavor of nuts and coffee with earthy and green hints, smooth and easy to drink, light pleasant chocolate aftertaste. Very good and fun to drink, its reputation is deserved.

On tap at Lowbrow’s. Poured into a pint glass. Aroma is of malt and roasted pecan. Appearance is dark with a slightly tan head. Tastes comes in with roasted malt and chocolate then it slowly dissapates into a roasted pecan note. Pretty good ale, my first from 512.
