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 (9062) - Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2013
Solid porter, hints of nuttiness, roaste notes, a solid beer, the brewery is growing on me.

shrubber85 (8836) - 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.

Scopey (8789) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at Yespr’s. It pours darkest brown/near black with a small tan head. The nose is roasty, toast, nut, caramel, earth, treacle, faint liquorice and a lick of smoke. The taste is light roast, toast, earth, pecan, caramel, pecan pie, earth and a touch of must. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well balanced and rather drinkable.

DocLock (8500) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours turbid dark blackish brown with 1-finger tan head. Nose is black patent malt, nuts, cacao. Tastes rich, with a malty flavor up front (black patent), nuts, cacao, brown sugar, hops, and molasses. This one is rich and dense, but I wanted more nutty sweetness. As it is, it isn’t bad, but comes off like a nut brown ale/dry stout hybrid with extra hops and patent malt.

JorisPPattyn (8387) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2013
Thick creamy dark-beige head over virtually black beer. Roasted/burnt, dark malts very dominant, breadcrust, faintly sweet smelling. Something of dark green leaves as well, whilst warming yields liquorice. Bitterish-roasted, brown sugar underneath, but hardly any sweetness. Don’t get the pecan, but then that’s not something I consume daily. Flavours drop away quite soon, leaving not much more than carbonated liquid behind. Spritzy, medium bodied, bit slick, but finishing empty. Ho hum.

DrSilverworm (8333) - 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.

deyholla (7950) - 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.

BVery (7878) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Tap. Nice dense dark pour with a clingy brown head. Lots of carmelized pecans and sugar sweetness in this. Some dry roasty coffee as well. A bit bitter late but finishes fairly clean.

DuffMan (7798) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle, the tenth in our tasting lineup of the Beers Of Fall. Dark brown body with a tan head, lacy retreat. Aroma is sweet chocolate and caramel. Flavour is pleasantly malty, milk chocolate and roasted nuts in nice balance. Very tasty.
