COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Didn’t 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.

ChainGangGuy (4423) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Appearance: Slips out a very dark, deep brown body with a thinnish, khaki-toned head.

Smell: Pecan Porter has a roasty, subtly nutty nose with sweetish touches of chocolate and cooked sugar.

Taste: A flavor that mirrors the nose, with tastes of well-roasted malt, chocolate and burnt sugars. The pecan addition is appreciable but is not the focus of the flavor, here, remaining fairly light. Small hint of raisin. Hop character and bitterness remains low. Very minimal alcohol presence. Mellow, lightly drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: While the pecans add a light, scant flavor and may leave you wanting, it still remains a nice, pleasant porter.
