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!

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.

22 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small fine beige head. The aroma and flavor have a decent chocolate opening, nutty, some roasted malts and earthy bitterness. The flavor falls off a bit toward the finish, ultimately ending with some ashy character. There is a mild sweetness that comes through. Very smooth and light to medium bodied. It just seems to miss on some key parts by a little bit.

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.

65 cl bottle @ wPBF’14, no BBE info
Aroma has some roastiness and distant moldy tones. Flavour is nutty with roasted notes, some cocoa and bitter coffee. Good, but no big feelings here.

Bomber to taster (shared with the group; thanks Jay). Looks good; dark brown light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, roast, and pecans. Tastes like it smells, but weaker, with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, but could definitely be more flavorful.

4/I/14 - 1Pt. 6.Fl. Oz. bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: n/a (2014-12) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown beer, aery irregular beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. aroma: lots of chocolate, mocha, dried fruits, sweet, floral, and yes, the smell of caramelised pecans, but maybe that’s only because I know? MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: dark chocolate, mocha, hoppy bitterness, dried fruits like dates and figs, some alcohol, raisins. Aftertaste: pretty hoppy, mocha and coffee, caramel, bit sweet, bitter.

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.

Bottle@Yespr’s - black pour with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of roasted and toasty malts, pecan nutty, chocolate, caramel, nice sweet/bitter balance as well, really linked this.

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.
