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!

jtclockwork (9882) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle thanks to PhatDog. Pours black with tan head. Nose of roasted pecan, vanilla and lightly toasted chocolate malt. Taste is a bit richer - lots of roasted chocolate with some coffee roast and vanilla. There’s a roasted nuttiness in the finish, which I attribute to the pecans. Medium body. Well balanced.

Cola colored pour, tan head. Spice, light pecan notes, roasted malt, bready aromas. Flavor is sweet, a tad watery, some pecan pie spice notes, maybe a hint of maple. Ok.

adnielsen (9629) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a dep brown/black appearance with a dark brown head. Anise, aramel, turtle dessert, chocolate, earthy, roasty malty, slightly grassy/herbal hoppy aroma. Roasty, slightly burnt, big anise, dark chocolate, slightly nutty, quite earthy flavor that finishes a bit watery. Kind of thin with a bit of bitterness on the finish but still kind of watery.

Sammy (9145) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
Underrated porter. The pecan adds a nice slightly sweet and certainly nutty beer. Above average mouthfeel. Dark brown coloured body. Pleasant and slightly sweet aroma. Very good drinkability. Fun unique stuff worth trying for those not hung up on being purists. One of the best bottle labels of recent years.

On draught at Yard House San Diego. Brownish-black color with a medium beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Roasted nuts, malt and grain in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, pecans and brown sugar. The finish is sweet with a roasted coffee and malt aftertaste. Above average overall.
