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!

wlajwl (4320) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Aroma is yeast, nutty/roasted malts and spices. The flavor is nutty malts, a definite sweetness, an undercurrent of the roasted pecans and a mix of tart and smooth in the finish.

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.

nick76 (4302) - 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.

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.

maxwelldeux (4081) - 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...

Cavie (3977) - 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

Butters (3938) - 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.
