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 (9999) - 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.

DrSilverworm (9671) - 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.

BVery (9668) - 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 (9593) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (9529) - 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.

phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2013
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.

olio (9370) - 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.

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.
