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!

Hazelnut, not pecan, and coffee nose. Mahogany, medium tan head, good lacing. Creamy mouthfeel. Char and pecan flavor, but not overly bitter. A little bit of coffee in the finish. Very nicely done. The name and label are wonderfully campy. The label features a likeness of Genghis Khan heroically hurling pecan pies at attacking turkeys that wearing the obligatory clown shoes. This bottle will be added to my highly selective collection.

Desverger (4597) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2014
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.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2013
22oz bottle. Bottled on 10/05/2012, First batch Genghis Pecan. Pours very dark brown, black color. Dark tan head. Aroma of toasted grains, pecan meal, burnt nutty character. Tastes of roasted grains, burnt nuts, loads of roast. This is not what Pecan Pie tastes like, glad they changed the name. It tastes like a hearty Porter. Very oily texture. Finishes with molasses & roast flavors. (3649)

nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2013
The aroma is almost nothing at all certainly no pecan pie just burnt malt and a touch of coffee. The appearance is dark black wit a thin head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a real disappointment with none of the qualities it should have.

PhillyCraft (4270) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Draft at Barcade. Super dark brown pour with light head, very nice lacing sheets. Notes of caramel malts, light roast, milk chocolate, light hops, and coffee. Not much pecan pie in this one for me. Medium body. Just ok.
