4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazelnut, not pecan, and coffee nose. Mahogany, medium tan head, good lacing. Creamy mouthfeel. Char and pecan flavor, but not overly bitter. A little bit of coffee in the finish. Very nicely done. The name and label are wonderfully campy. The label features a likeness of Genghis Khan heroically hurling pecan pies at attacking turkeys that wearing the obligatory clown shoes. This bottle will be added to my highly selective collection.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle in an English pint. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate, dark sugar and pecans, and light hops with hints of smokiness. Flavor about the same, with a nice blend of everything and no overly artificial flavors. Average texture. An interesting porter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, sugar, chocolate malt, light coffee notes. Flavor of roasted coffee, chocolate malt, light roasted nuts, sweet brown sugar, with more coffee in the finish. I don’t really get any pecan specifically. Pretty decent sweet porter, but it doesn’t live up to the name.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; poured a dark cola brown with an average sized brown head. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, toffee, chalk, with fruit and sweet notes. Palate was almost too watery, but it did make it a quick drink. Flavor overall had some nice complexity, but flavors were not bursting out generally. That said, notes of caramel, brown sugar, cocoa, nuts, roasted malt, and maybe a note of coffee in the finish. A solid and drinkable beer, but maybe expected a bit more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
