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!

crossovert (10770) - Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2013
Solid porter, hints of nuttiness, roaste notes, a solid beer, the brewery is growing on me.

Sammy (10678) - 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.

adnielsen (10424) - 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.

shrubber85 (10036) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle. Pecan and dark corn syrup aroma. Dark brown with moderate head. Minimally sweet chocolate and roasted malt flavor. Mild pecan and bitter/ashy finish. Good straight forward beer - subtle.

deyholla (9762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle thanks to trade! Pours near black with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has dark grains with some sweet chocolate and a hint of pecan. Flavor has more roasted malts with some sweet dark grains and a bit of pecan.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 Sample from a 22oz bottle, thanks to b3shine for sharing. Good toasty, nutty (pecan) nose. Some light roast and coffee, little dark chocolate in the nose. Black body, but clear dark brown color on the very edges, still. Thin tan head, good reaches of lace. Definitely a solid pecan pie flavor to it. Mostly sweet taste, lightly bitter. Medium-plus body, softer carbonation, kind of smooth, lightly creamy, lightly dry in the finish, a little lingering though. Solid, tasty porter. 7/4/6/3/14

Re-rate, 10/27/13: 2013 bottle. OK... A good amount of pecan, but it’s really sweet.

Stuu666 (9543) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle at home. Bitter roasted chocolate, dry, light salty pecan, could do with more nutty flavour but its not bad.
