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!

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy brown with medium frothy tan head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a strong pecan, chocolate, and roast. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, and light bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink, a good porter.

Thanks to hudsonphotog for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of chocolate and pecan notes, as well as some roasted malt. The flavor is similar. The heavily roasted malt notes really come through, but there is also a good bit of sweetness from the brown sugar and some nice roasted pecan flavor. All of the notes go very well together, with the sweetness and nuttyness melding especially well. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

Pailhead (5684) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, molasses, light caramel, burnt notes, coffee, and a touch of nuts. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a two finger khaki head. There’s a soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with dark chocolate and molasses. The finish has some burnt notes, roasted coffee, some roasted nuts, and a hint of alcohol. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I got some nuttiness, but I can’t say this makes me think of a pecan pie. It’s more reminiscent of an Imperial Stout than a Porter.
