This is no joke; this is a really nice treat--almost like a dessert beer. This is a malty treat with just enough of the pecan goodness in the background.

Slight roasted nose along with mellow chocolate notes. More mellow than expected, pecan hard to pick up for me. Overall drink ability was nice

On tap at Yard House Houston. It pours a dense, finger thick tan head over a more or less black body. It’s quite roasted on the nose, with a solid shot of licorice. Dark chocolate too. It’s pleasantly carbonated, medium to full bodied on the palate, and quite dry even though there’s sweetness going on in the flavor. Roasted malts, some dark chocolate and bitterness, and quite a lot of salty licorice, as well as some nuts. Lasting finish with roasted malts and safety licorice. Some sweetness too, but it’s bitter enough to prevent it from even getting close to cloying. Sure a nice one. Especially like the licorice, but hoped for more nuts. 131111

Albany, Ga - Warehouse Package Store - 22 oz bomber. Pitch black pour sticky khaki colored head that leaves a nice film of lacing. Aroma has some peanut-like accents, some earthy potting soil. Flavor is pleasant with some light chocolate notes, some peanut butter accents, a touch of potting soul. Mouthfeel is smooth, could be a tad thicker. Pretty solid.

Bottle. Black with a fluffy tan head. Sweet almost pumpkin like chocolate and malt aroma. Thick creamy palate. Tastes of pecan, sugar, and chocolate with a sweet finish.

22 oz Bottle. Pours dark black. Slight hint of pecan on the nose. Smooth. Not quite as sweet as expected. Interesting.

This beer is not one of clown shoes better offerings. The pecan and brown sugar do not really pop. It is a little thin and watery. Some bitterness, but rather one dimensional.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a dep brown/black appearance with a dark brown head. Anise, aramel, turtle dessert, chocolate, earthy, roasty malty, slightly grassy/herbal hoppy aroma. Roasty, slightly burnt, big anise, dark chocolate, slightly nutty, quite earthy flavor that finishes a bit watery. Kind of thin with a bit of bitterness on the finish but still kind of watery.

A delicious and full flavored beer, though I don’t get any pecan flavors out of it. Aroma was a nice big whiff of strong dark chocolate and roasted malt. Smell so thick you feel like you can reach out and grab it. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin tan ring for a head. Taste was big and full of chocolate malt. Very milky with a nice mix of sweet roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate. Nice bitter hoppy finish. Nice carbonation round the beer out
