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!

DocLock (7915) - 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.

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.

crossovert (7566) - Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2013
Solid porter, hints of nuttiness, roaste notes, a solid beer, the brewery is growing on me.

Ughsmash (7157) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Bomber. Poured deep brown with a very short-lived beige head. The aroma was very sweet, with chocolate and vanilla accented by salted nutty notes.. quite a bit of roast to it.. something didn’t quite work for me. The flavor found burnt chocolate and other black malts at the core, with brown sugar, sweet pecans, and coffee around.. finished burnt and roasty, with chocolate and coffee coming back. Medium-bodied with a lot of bitter roast on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. this wasn’t bad, but I wasn’t a huge fan.

Scopey (7058) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2013
22oz bomber pours with a mahogany colored body that briefly supports a weak dark tan head. The aroma offers up muted aged cinnamon spice, ginger and a sweet orange hard candy note. At the edges of the aroma might be dusty dry nuttiness but it is so light it could be something else. The taste begins with sweet malts and some sweet nuttiness and then moves into a sort of cinnamon spice to roasted malt sort of mixture. It’s not really gelling for me.

DuffMan (6886) - 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.

sebletitje (6800) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2013
bomber split wth Tomaz @ home. Brune foncée, col moyen, moka, fin doré au verre. Arôme donne ce bouquet agréable de noix de pécan quoique ce dernier reste discret. Le tout indique une petite rondeur de sucre caramélisé suivi d’une pointe d’amertume/citronné. Palais est malté, caramel grillé avec ce petit côté noisette-pécan. Le tout est assez discret, et je déplore ici ce profil sucré-sucre brun qui domine toute la bière la rendant trop douce. Le tout est sec et une effervescence moyenne-haute. Au final, bière agréable mais dont j’attendais plus. J’avoue avoir acheté cette dernière sur base de l’étiquette, très sympa. Clown Shoes reste solide comme brasserie.

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.
