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!

Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a medium brown topper that fades away rather slowly. Aroma is up front brown sugar and pecan with coffee, dark roasted malts, sticky buns and a touch of bready malt. Taste of brown sugar, coffee, chocolate, nuts and mild pecans with an acidic finish.

djd07 (3896) - 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.

burg326 (3884) - Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2012
22 ounce bottle poured a dark brown color, almost black, aromas of light chocolate, pecans, caramel, and some light brown sugar. Flavors are the same, blended nicely. This was a real enjoyable beer.

Butters (3857) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Very dark brown near black pour with decent offwhite head. Big roasty semisweet nose with a strong clean nuttiness that is not vegetal at all. Flavor is similar, but has a coffee w/ creamer note too it. I wouldn’t have described this as pecan pie, but it is still a pretty damn good nutty porter. Awesome name.

Cavie (3844) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2013
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

SSSteve (3831) - - DEC 8, 2012
bottle. near black with a small, stable, creamy light brown head. sweet nose with dark chocolate. great creamy, full body with low carbonation makes for easy drinking. flavor has notes of chocolate, a balanced flavor hop addition, and an odd vinous note. not much pecan, but i get a nutty bitterness in the finish similar to green walnuts. overall, it tastes pretty good and has good balance.

maxwelldeux (3806) - Everett, 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...

sonnycheeba (3757) - 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.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Black bier with a 1/4 trying tan head. The aroma is mellow, rich pecan. The flavor is amaretto malty pecan. A little spice. medium body and some creamy sweetness. A sweet desert sort of bier for those with a swveet tooth.
