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!

I’m just coming into the world of Porters. This one was excellent and full of flavor.

tectactoe (1167) - Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Dark brown pour, pitch black in the glass with a big, tan head that leaves a bit of lacing behind. Aroma is some sweet chocolate malt, light nuttiness, mild maple notes, and some brown sugar. Taste is heavy chocolate, mostly sweet and a little roasty, especially on the back end. Nutty finish, though not specifically pecan. Aftertaste is a little woodsy, too. Roasted and blunt cocoa powder with some residual sweetness, borderline astringent. Like many CS beers, mouth feel is lacking, but overall still pretty tasty.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 3, 2013
On tap at Capitol Beer. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a nutty aroma. There is a full-bodied dark molasses flavor with a dry pecan finish.

JBPortland (457) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 30, 2013
From 9/29 notes. Shared with John for Breaking Bad finale tasting, beer #2. 22oz bottle pours dark brown/black into tulip with small almost 1 finger head. Nose is bitter coffee, chocolate, vanilla, some faint boozy notes. Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy and thin, a bit of creaminess, low carbonation. Taste is roasty dark chocolate, malty, bitter coffee, vanilla. Finish is bitter nutty dark cocao, subtle pecan pie, graham cracker. This bottle is a year old so perhaps the pecan has faded, not much to be found. Still a decent porter but seems run-of-the-mill.

Sharp alcohol and malt aroma. Black color with a medium light brown head. Sweet flavor in the beginning that slowly fades in the finish. Moderate creamy palate.

bwa5879 (537) - Portage, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Black pour with brown hue, eighth inch cocoa brown head. Very light smokey chocolate and medium brewed coffee scent. Average carbonation, foamy soft mouthfeel, finish only a bit dry. Taste is supremely blended and a bit indistinct. Not sure I specificatlly get pecans, some gingerness, smooth malt, watery porter taste however. Not worth the price of admission, flavor too subtle. Pretty good standard porter but I expected more from the description, ingredients, and price tag.

crazyvin (1858) - New York, USA - SEP 15, 2013
A brown body with a a nice light brown head. Beer seemed to have a bit of carbonation to it. A nice aroma of sweet cocoa malts, nice rich roasted malts. A nice subtle nutty quality. Flavor had a nice roasted malt presence upfront, cocoa malts were nice and sweet. Although there was a nutty flavor, I could not say if it was pecans or not but it certainly complemented the malty flavors. A nice full finish that was slightly creamy.

Bottle. Pours dark black with tan head. Smells of chocolate and pecans. Has a sweet, nutty taste with hints of chocolate and malts. Slightly sweet aftertaste. A good beer
