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!

jkwood04 (4769) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 31, 2013
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.

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.

ben4321 (4749) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 10/21/13, 2013 Bottle

Aroma: The aroma is nutty, and sweet, with some caramel and roasted malts
Appearance: It pours a rich brown color with a small light brown head and some light lace
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, fairly nutty, and a little roasty, with a mild earthy bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth, clean feel, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: Pretty solid stuff overall. The pecans and brown sugar flavors are clearly there, but they are also subtle enough that the clean malty flavors can come through too. Fairly light and easy drinking for the style.

22 ounce bottle poured a dark brown color, almost black, aromas of light chocolate, pecans, caramel, and some light brown sugar. Flavors are the same, blended nicely. This was a real enjoyable beer.

Aroma is yeast, nutty/roasted malts and spices. The flavor is nutty malts, a definite sweetness, an undercurrent of the roasted pecans and a mix of tart and smooth in the finish.
