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!

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.

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.

sebletitje (6895) - 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.

22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine- thanks again, Beau! Pours a deep brown color with a small beige head. The aroma has some definite nuttiness but I never would have pegged it as pecan; also chocolate, toast, earth, fudge, and brown sugar. Flavor of dark chocolate, toast, earth, and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Good porter but doesn’t quite hit the mark.

marcus (6773) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 3, 2013
On tap at Capitol Beer. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a nutty aroma. There is a full-bodied dark molasses flavor with a dry pecan finish.

olio (6511) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2014
65 cl bottle @ wPBF’14.
Pours clear dark copper color with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee notes and resinous hops. Flavor of roasted malts, some tar, caramel, mild cocoa, dry nutty notes and wood. Slightly too thin but almost perfect balance on the body. Very nice anyway.

Bottle @ Home. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, rich dark chocolate, nuts. Flavor is rather sweet with malts, coffee, dark chocolate, nuts, little brown sugar, light licorice. Medium body, average carbonation, light dry finish with some alcohol. 120114

1/4/12. 22oz bottle from Binny’s in Bolingbrook. Black pour with a nice khaki head that laces very well. Dry, ashy porter characteristics in the aroma with just a touch of sweet caramel. Lightly sweet caramel entry with a touch of nuttiness and caramel. Not really like the pie, but tasty.

Wish list item bottled in October. Nothin wrong with it but not nearly as good as I’d hoped. A decent chocolaty roasted porter with an additional unidentifiable sweetness that I can also guess was pecan. Didn’t leave much of an impression."
