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!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5245) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a black color with a small foamy tan head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was faint toasty malts, caramel, pecan and a hint of molasses. The flavor was dryish and nutty with notes of caramel and molasses, a hint of coffee and vague roast nuts. Medium length roasty and nutty finish. Medium body. Ok.

EithCubes (5195) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bomber. Nose is nutty, indeed, with heavy dark chocolate and brown sugar, pie spice with wood and a little bourbon, malt. Pours pitch with a large, tight light brown head. Taste is sweet, malty medium body thin at points, but creamy and rich at others; bit airy with a yeasty/mineral touch behind light fruitiness, some bourbon barrel but for deft rounding, and a nice subtle wood component. The pecan element isn’t overdone, just a bit of lipid fullness and I think some mild scorch, but the stronger dark chocolate is sultry and whatever porter is the base is nice. Smooth and satisfying.

JaBier (5188) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle shared by a friend at the 5th Annual Coldest Day of the Year Stout Tasting on 1/26/13. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, chocolate and some nuts. Pecan and malt flavor with some green pepper character and a weird tartness.

djd07 (5177) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2013
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.

Countbeer (5043) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle@ZZT8: BBT1: Small ashy creamy yellowish foamy head on top of a deep dark brown to black colored beer. Aromas of roast/toasty malts and grains, malts, apple pie, light liquor, nuts, dark fruit. Flavours of roast, chalk, chocolate, bitter, malts and grainy toast. Aftertaste is bitter, chocolate, chalk and malty toast. Low carbo, watery light creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture.

jgb9348 (4993) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of pecans, nuts, earth, malt, figs, raisins and a touch of smoke! Medium to Full-bodied; Strong earthy and nutty flavours at first with a very deep pungent toasty flavour and even more pit fruits noticeable, all with some light caramel and smoked peat notes as well. Aftertaste is rich and complex with the full flavours of nuts and earth really meshing well with the sweetness of the caramel and pit fruits. Overall, a nice porter with a huge nuttiness (expected) and a defined sweet flavour from the caramel and pit fruits (not expected) make this great to drink. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Alexandria (Old Town), Virginia on 30-March-2014 for US$7.99 sampled at home here in Washington on 15-June-2014.

nuplastikk (4917) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2012
22oz bomber split with Anndiesel. Opaque black body, respectable beige head. Sweet, nutty porter, as you would expect I suppose, some salted pecan in the aftertaste. Sweet brown chocolate, a touch of cookie dough. Easy on the palate. Good beer, maybe a little too pricey for the final product though...love to see it in sixpacks as opposed to a bomber that costs the better part of ten dollars.

22oz bottle courtesy of radarsock. Cheers, Ander! Pours a hazy porter brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted pecans, some light nuttiness, dark chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavor follows with roasted malt, some light nuttiness that almost comes off as peanuts, some earthy hops, and some dryness toward the finish. Interesting porter overall; medium to full in body and nutty.
