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.

Deep black in color with slight tan head. Strong whiskey notes on the aroma with some hints of roastiness underneath. Quite sweet and roasty with the vanilla whiskey strength intertwined. Really tasty! Notes: On tap at the Friendly Spot, San Antonio

caramel, coffee, leather, leaves, earthy, vanilla, smoke, black, medium sweetness, full body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish, An exceptional, damn hard to find, example of a whiskey barrel aged ale. Superb with a chocolate silk cake or even a chocolate mousse.

Really liked this. Pours dark, pitch black as a big gusher. Nose is big molasses. Flavours are very boozy, lots of sweet syrup, some nutella. Tastes big sweet, medium bitter. Oily body, light carbonation. Big beer, well done.

A deep dark porter with a thick frothy dark brown head. In aroma, bitter herbaceous chocolate, coffee grind, musty character, powdery character, interesting. In mouth, a nice bitter sweet chocolate with coffee grind, licorice notes, a bit dry, light bourbon, nice. Bottle at 2014 Ottawa Xmas gathering.

2012 Vintage
From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a bottle. Pours completely opaque dark brown with a massive brown head that slowly recedes to thick, messy lace. The nose is nutty with some maple, vanilla, and banana whiskey. The flavor is the same, not giving me a whole lot, and really put off by the amazingly high amount of carbonation. The body is full with over-active carbonation and a long nutty and whiskey finish. Disappointing given the hype.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some pecans, some light whiskey and oak, hints of chocolate, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A solid beer.

"Good use of pecan here. Flavor and aroma really nice...the feel is a little light and prickly for the style, but otherwise this was a nice blend of roasted malt, whisky, and pecans."

jrob21 (2677) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Sample at First Sunday. Whiskey flavors of wood and a bit of oak. Pecan is light here but present and definitely not as sweet as I was anticipating something called "pecan pie" to be. Not a bad thing at all in fact I prefer a more subtle nuttiness to an overly sweet dessert bomb. Nice blend of flavors come together here to make a decent beer.

Theydon_Bois (9990) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, thanks to Jackl, 12/05/14. Black with a moderate tan head that retains well. Nose is roast malt, bourbon, dark toffee fudge, chocolate, light charr. Taste comprises dark roast, spice, dark fruit pangs, cocoa powder, subtle BA effect. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a shallow bourbon rinse. Decent enough BA imperial, subtley done, not a huge level of complexity but a nice enough sipper.
