3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap and out of the bottle. They really did a fine job of making a beer taste like pecan pie. Brown pour, sweet nose: pecan and nutty, almost a sugary glaze with some vanilla. Not too heavy on the mouth, taste follows the nose, pretty food desert beer, not for everybody but I would drink it again

From the 750 bottle. Chocolate and big alcohol bite. Rum raisin vanilla and some pecan pie thrown in. Tastes more like a barleywine.

Clear dark copper with a tan head. Heavy vanilla aroma with mole sauce notes. Delicious pecan pie filling, aromatic vanilla beans, some fumey alcohol. Really does give off a pie vibe. Body is quite thin and airy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Whole Foods - 750 ml capped bottled. Pours a deep, dark brown with a slight reddish tinge to it, light off-white head - light traces of lacing. Aroma is pleasant and sweet with some molasses, nutty pecan accents, a touch of vanilla. Flavor is sweet, but not cloying with some sweet pecan pie notes, a bit of maple syrup, some hints of vanilla and a back end of brown sugar. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness. This could have have been a hot mess.....but CC has a way of making these things work.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours a dark brown with a small khaki head. Smells of vanilla and nutty, taste is very sweet lots of vanilla up front followed by nuttyness and malts. Basically taste like pecan pie, some alcohol can be detected once it gets warmer. The body is a bit thinner than I expected but it is very drinkable

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from Whole Foods in Tallahassee. Brown pour with an orange tint and thin tan head that disappears quickly. Nutty, chocolate and vanilla in the aroma. Tastes definitely capture the pecan pie vibe -- pecan, coffee, toffee, chocolate, little woody, molasses. Slick medium to thick palate. Itís sweet for sure, but not overly so. Still, just a one-off sipper for me. Well constructed and interesting overall.
