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!

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, sugar, chocolate malt, light coffee notes. Flavor of roasted coffee, chocolate malt, light roasted nuts, sweet brown sugar, with more coffee in the finish. I don’t really get any pecan specifically. Pretty decent sweet porter, but it doesn’t live up to the name. 6/4/7/4/14 (3.5/5)

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours deep brown, bubbly, with a frothy, dark oatmeal head. Scent is pecan (lightly), almost smoky/roasty..... Taste is chocolate, nuts, caramel, milk. Slight earthy bitter. Very sweet overall...good one.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle; poured a dark cola brown with an average sized brown head. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, toffee, chalk, with fruit and sweet notes. Palate was almost too watery, but it did make it a quick drink. Flavor overall had some nice complexity, but flavors were not bursting out generally. That said, notes of caramel, brown sugar, cocoa, nuts, roasted malt, and maybe a note of coffee in the finish. A solid and drinkable beer, but maybe expected a bit more.

sonnycheeba (3295) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with thin, fizzy beige head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is roasted and caramel malts, pecans, chocolate, figs, raisins, light earthy and floral hops. Flavor is roast malts forward with supporting dark chocolate, toffee, earthy hops, some dark fruit esters, and light smoke; dry, ashy finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

TheEpeeist (3272) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2012
22 oz bottle. Dark brown with tan froth. Nose is light molasses, roasted nuts and hay. Medium body with a tang. Taste is coffee bean and brown sugar; earthy, bitter finish with hints of pecan. Restrained for Clown Shoes with nice balance.

djd07 (3243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy brown with medium frothy tan head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a strong pecan, chocolate, and roast. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, and light bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink, a good porter.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2013
hazy sepia, wispy cream head. Sweet nose is hints of sugar, burnt, light cookie. Flavor is sweet up front, grains contrast as dry. Thin and sticky. Needs more flavor, better attenuation.

Cybercat (3195) - Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Smoky aroma has notes of caramel, malt - and yes, pecan. Pours a rich, warm sable with a thick and persistent light tan head. Rich flavor fills the mouth with brown sugar, caramel, pecan and malt notes plus hints of chocolate and roast quality coffee. May be a whisper of licorice in there, too. Fairly sweet, but not too much. Smooth, firm texture has a good amount of fizz and very nice body. A nutty conquest indeed!

sunevdj (3120) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle at Theis LA-box tasting. Pours an opaque dark brown with an off.-white head. Sweet and very bitter. Aromas of plastic and toasted malts. Medium bodied. Medium to high carbonation. Dry and yeasty finish. No good.

PhillyCraft (3071) - 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.
