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!

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.

travita (4418) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. The look is dark, brown to black in color, and beige colored head. The smell is roasty, malts, pecan, richness, and sugar. The taste is sweet, roast, malts, sugary, brown sugar, and ok.

unclemattie (4357) - 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 (4314) - 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.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a very thin tan head. Nose is just a tad sweet from the nuts, but has a hint of roasting in it. Taste has the nuttiness of the pecans in there and with a hint of sweetness. Interesting...

Bottle courtesy pikapp327. Pours a dark brown color with a foamy tan head. Aroma is dry, roasty, sweet sugar and nuts. Light mouthfeel, roasty flavor. Maybe light pecan flavor but not much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
