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.

22 ounce bottle pours a dark brown, almost black color, aromas of light pecans, roasted malt, booze, oak, light vanilla, and some light coco. flavors are the same, not much nuts in the flavor, kind of dominated by the booze taste, but all the aromas are there. Glad I finally got to try this one, a really nice beer overall that I would love to drink again.
