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!

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.

Pours dark black with a thick dark brown head. Aroma is light chocolate and a subtle nutty hit. Taste is slightly nutty and sweet, molasses, pretty bland really, watery thin body.... meh.

To start, don’t know if something was wrong with the bottle I got but I did not get much pecan from this at all. It is a good base beer though. Rich black color with low carbonation. Sweet smelling bready notes to the aroma. Very slight general nuttiness, roasted bitterness, some toast.

Good. Thick with lingering aftertaste. I greatly enjoyed it. Not much pecan pie flavor I expected though. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Guiness Glass from Glass Bottle Beer had a lovely black pour, and nice short brown head. The aromas ere of lovely roasted malts, and nuts on the finish. The beer had a smooth texture with a gentle finish on the pallet. It was well balanced with the flavors, not to much pecan, but just enough to compliment the slight roasted coffee finish.

Bottle from pikapp327. Dark brown pour with a brown head. Aroma is sweet, spice, brown sugar, and nuts. Taste is sweet, more brown sugar, roasted, and not so much pecan.
