3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle at home. Bitter roasted chocolate, dry, light salty pecan, could do with more nutty flavour but its not bad.
