COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a bigger, bolder version of our mainstay Pecan Porter, with a richer finish. Two months on recently emptied Jack Daniels select barrels imparted a wonderful vanilla character from the oak and a pleasant amount of whiskey nose and flavor.

Shared 25.4 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of booze. Taste is booze and oak with faint roasted malt and chocolate. No pecan noted. The barrel pretty much wiped out almost all traces of the original brew, which I easily prefer over this. Disappointing.

Aroma: definitely more oak than whiskey; Appearance: pitch black with tan head that dissipates slowly; Taste: bitter and oaky, without much subtley; Palate: heavy body with short finish; Overall: not nearly as smooth and flavorful as expected.

On tap at Bangers. Dull pour and mild aroma, but wait for it....huge taste and lingering warmth. Nutty, sweet, woody. All comes together quite nicely. Drinkable, but sip slowly, and savor....

(En fût au Whip In): Pas de retenu sur vanille dans celle-là. L’aspect mix nuts navigue très bien dans la marre chocolatée. Superbe.

Pour is dark a with a tan rootbeer top head. Aroma is toffe, whiskey, sugar, licorice, brown sugar, pecan. Sweet syrupy goodness. I need more.

Bomber - Dark coffee color with a tan head. The aroma of bourbon is definitely there. An aroma and taste of pecans and coffee and also a taste of vanilla and wood. Medium body. Boozy.

Bomber bottle. Poured great with creamy head that did not persist long. Black in color no apparent haze. Aroma mostly of chocolate flavor was also mostly chocolate with a hint of vanilla bourbon. As it warmed more of a coffee flavor was aroused. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a inky black with a little beige foam. Nose was very reminiscent of pecan pie. Taste is brown sugar, nuts, bourbon, vanilla and a little alcohol bite. Very sweet , definitely a sipper otherwise it could be cloying. As a fan of regular 512 Pecan Porter I can say i definitely was not let down.

HonusWagner (2093) - Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Nose is vanilla, nuts, whiskey, rather pleasant. Flavors follow but the lingering whiskey flavor is a bit tacky and overwhelming. It’s still a good beer on the aroma alone but I wish the whiskey was less aggressive.

Sampled at the GABF 2015. Poured a dark brown color with tan head. Nose is whiskey and chocolate malts. Medium in body. So sign of the alcohol. The flavor is good balance of whiskey barrel and chocolate plus pecans. The whiskey adds a lot to the finish. Really good
