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!

maneliquor (3393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2014
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

degbert (1301) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a velvet-Elvis-painting matte black with a high, medium brown, lacy head. Nose is coffee, smoke, pie crust, and unsweetened chocolate. Savory on the front of the tongue, with the brown sugar and pecans hitting in a huge wave immediately afterwards, followed by strong espresso (pie and a cup of coffee, anyone?). Long, complex, and molasses-like finish. Not as sweet as you’d think, and quite nice.

Scopey (8397) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at Yespr’s. It pours darkest brown/near black with a small tan head. The nose is roasty, toast, nut, caramel, earth, treacle, faint liquorice and a lick of smoke. The taste is light roast, toast, earth, pecan, caramel, pecan pie, earth and a touch of must. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well balanced and rather drinkable.

Bottle@Yespr’s - black pour with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of roasted and toasty malts, pecan nutty, chocolate, caramel, nice sweet/bitter balance as well, really linked this.

monk191 (1223) - California, USA - FEB 23, 2014
A very smooth, milky porter. Pours a thick black with a light tan head. Smells like milk chocolate and pecans. More in the taste, very creamy, smooth and a sweet finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Homer321 (2512) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle. Not much pecan in the nose. Just kind of brown ish. A hint of sugar. Taste is similar but has a light roasty character to it. Ok but not something I would think had pecans in it or seek out again

MPA (860) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle. Black, brown head. Aroma of cocoa beans, mild coffee and roasted malts. Sweet and mild in flavour. Bitterness is very well balanced. I’d drink a lot of this if served, but I’d be missing something to make me feel saturated.
