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!

Ferris (5245) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Bottle - Molasses and some sweet boozy soapy notes. Jet black with a rich brown head. Dark chocolate and molasses with a light bit of the pecan in the finish. Nice, but not nearly as good as the 512 in regards to pecan flavor.

Bomber into tulip. Really nice beer from the 2013 release. Not a huge amount of pecan on the taste but a really flavorful beer nonetheless. Will grab again for the 2014 release. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown almost black with creamy brown head. Smells of dried fruits, roasted malts, and nuts. Taste has a metallic tinge to it, caramel malts, drive fruit, light bitter, and coffee. Has a very creamy mouth feel and has a bitter coffee after taste.

Bottle thanks to trade! Pours near black with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has dark grains with some sweet chocolate and a hint of pecan. Flavor has more roasted malts with some sweet dark grains and a bit of pecan.

johnnnniee (2516) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from Andover Liquors, dark brown black tan head. Sweet brown sugary nutty aroma and flavor. Nice beer, although the flavor is a bit subtle, I was expecting something along the lines of Southern Tier Creme Brulee.

Bottle from Mane Liquor for Ryan’s ’wetting of the babies head.’ You can actually taste the pecan. Well pissed. Kinda sweet and very sessionable. Solid porter
