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!

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.

Idiosynkrasie (6049) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 11, 2013
650ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with small, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Dark and caramel malty aroma with a nuttily touch. Taste is dry dark malty, hints of caramel, burnt sugar, a nuttily touch; middle part brings subtle sweetness, in the finish again dry notes, like hazelnut parings; soft palate, slightly disturbed by effervescent carbonation. A porter with a genuine dryness.

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.
