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!

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 (2211) - Rock Ridge, 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 (845) - 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.

Pailhead (5192) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, molasses, light caramel, burnt notes, coffee, and a touch of nuts. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a two finger khaki head. There’s a soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with dark chocolate and molasses. The finish has some burnt notes, roasted coffee, some roasted nuts, and a hint of alcohol. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I got some nuttiness, but I can’t say this makes me think of a pecan pie. It’s more reminiscent of an Imperial Stout than a Porter.
