3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

This is a very nice porter. Pours very dark, nice thick head that hangs around. Very heavy roasted notes. I don’t get much pecan out of it, but it’s delicious none the same.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice aroma of roasted barley and a ver pitch black color. A little dark for a porter. Taste is sweet but lacks that nice porter lightness that makes it so appealing. Clean toasty finish that is probably the best part.

Goes down medium-bodied and quite smooth. Caramel and a roasted nuttiness upfront taste-wise. Brown sugar and vanilla extract follow. A mild coffee and dark chocolate bitterness at the tail-end. A salty kick finishes things off. A tasty dessert brew.
