COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our new Pecan Pie Porter no longer uses extract, but rather brown sugar and pecans roasted by friends at The Gallows in Boston. Buddy Hadry, a rep at Bella Vista in PA, gave me the name for this beer, the second Pecan beer now that he has named. Thank you, Buddy!

Aroma has pecan, vanilla, brown sugar, cream, and a little metallic funk that breathed off after a minute. Flavor has vanilla, nuts, and a little coffee, with a really creamy mouthfeel. Roast coffee bitterness in the finish. Really good.

Color- dark brown with cocoa head. In the nose you get maple syrup and brown sugar. A bit of a metallic taste, but that goes away as it warms.

Onslow (1242) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Pour from a 22oz bomber. Clear, dark, brown head. Aroma of old burnt coffee with some sour notes. Taste is sweet at the start with a pleasnat nutty flavor towards the middle then ending with burn grains, though sweetness pervades all along. A little lingering sweetness at the end. Heavy with a full and rich palate that is quite fine.

Aroma: Nutty, roasted aroma with hints of soy sauce. Appearance: Dark brown, almost black, with a chocolaty tan head. Taste: Medium sweetness with hints of bitterness at the edges. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: It’s a rich, robust beer. I’m not sure I taste the pecan pie, but there is a slightly nutty flavor that adds to this beer. Really well done.

DocJitsu (1154) - Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Pours an opaque, very dark brown color with some cola-ruby glints around the bottom edge of the glass when held to the light. Creamy smooth, one and a half finger, dark taupe head is noted. The head has good retention, creating a good-looking beer for a little longer. Sweet sorghum, a little char, and some date on the nose. Thicker mouthfeel with a slightly drying texture. I got a hint of the pecan pie in my third pull, about two thirds of the way just before the beer finishes. Mashed potatoes at times. The tastes are blended well, but fat is noted to be expressed just a touch more than others. A bit of a woody flavor is detected at times. Not barrel wood, but saw dust you taste in the air after cutting with a saw. There is a smoky dimension as well.

Bomber. Pours a dark brownish black pour with a sudsy head. Nose is nutty and malty and quite pleasant. Taste is sweet chocolate with nutty notes, full of flavor ! Taste is light and not heavy on the palate. Finishes with a sweet chocolate dessert like finish. Nice porter. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Pours a dark brown with a brown head and nutty, chocolate aroma. Taste is sweet, lots of nuts and pecan flavor with burnt notes, milk chocolate, and roasted malt leading to a smooth, nutty finish. Nice brew

22 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small fine beige head. The aroma and flavor have a decent chocolate opening, nutty, some roasted malts and earthy bitterness. The flavor falls off a bit toward the finish, ultimately ending with some ashy character. There is a mild sweetness that comes through. Very smooth and light to medium bodied. It just seems to miss on some key parts by a little bit.
