COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Roasted malts, pecan aroma! This is a delicious beer! If you start with this beer, finish with this beer. The taste will spoil all other flavors and youíll just end up ordering another anyway!

Keg. Pitch black. Coffee, dark chocolate in the aroma. Taste: Roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and yes, pecans. ABV very well hidden.

Cask conditioned. Nose is vanilla and cocoa notes. Big full mouthfeel with terrific caramel sweetness. The pecan definitely comes through in the flavor, especially on the midpallete and aftertaste, with just a hint of nutty bitterness with terrific balance. Need to find a few bottles to take back to Colorado.

Black as night falls, nice mocha head. The nut on the nose come through a tad. You also get roasty, chocolate on the nose. The mouthfeel is that of silky with some medium body. Smoke comes in just slighty then the roasted chocolate and on the finish the pecan makes a cameo.

I am very partial to Porters. And this Porter lands near the Meantime Porter as far as my favorites. In my top 2, most certainly. This Porter is good in a much different way. It has a great chocolate/coffee aroma to it, and has a more malty taste to it. The first batch of it I tried wasnít nearly as dry as the last batch I tasted, but in both cases, the beer didnít disappoint. When you read Pecan, donít expect sweet. It is still very much a Porter, but with a little bit of added malt to it. Which some will like, and other wonít.

Beautiful caramel head, with a subtle and delicious hint of chocolate pecan. One of the best porters I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes, 5/4/11: Had this one on tap at The Draft Pick in Austin. Aroma: Coffee, roasted malts, slight chocolaty sweetness, and of course, pecans. Appearance: Poured a deep dark brown into a room temp pint glass with minimal head. Tan head quickly dissipated and left slight spiderweb lacing. Taste: Loved the nutty roastiness and coffee flavors true to the style. Palate: Thick for a porter, low carbonation, and damn smooth. Overall: Definitely one of my favorite porters to date.

Delicious beer. Extremely yummy. I am not sure when or how they add the pecans but it does have the flavor, and it melds quite well into a robust porter. Great job guys.

Keg at the Ginger Man, Austin. Pours deep black with red hints, nose has roast coffee, toffee, pecan, apple. The body is rich and full, with black treacle and roast malt, then nuts coming through in the mid body. Sweetness and pecans then come through as the chill eases off. The aftertaste is very roast with bitter and nutty notes, faint hints of strawberries. Superb.

Draft at Fort Worth Flying Saucer. First 512 beer and wow was this nice. Big, bold porter that honestly seemed barrel aged: notes of coffee, vanilla and booze. Just a hint of the pecan nuttiness. Really nice surprise.
