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.

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

There seems to be some emerging debate about this beer. Perhaps it depends on the bottle, but in my case, this beer was quite good, and definitely rich. Very dark, nearly opaque pour. The pecan quality was very difficult to tease out of it, and warming didn’t bring it to light. Chocolate, roasted-to-smoke notes, some wood, all told a very rich and flavorful porter, with a body that veered to the edge of the stouts, with some carbonation but a rich, sweet, clinging oiliness. A light burnt bitterness at the finish. Really enjoyable, whether or not it has any pecan pie (except for sweetness). Bottle, with Thanksgiving dinner.

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.

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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a thick black with a pleasing nose of slick pecan, caramel, and toffee. Flavor is coffee, pecan, cocoa, and chocolate powder in a gooey, sugary syrup of nuts and butter candy. Average mouthfeel. I hate pecans, and I hate pecan pie even more but this was a pretty tasty brew.
