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!

There seems to be some emerging debate about this beer. Perhaps it depends on the bottle, but in my case, this beer was quite good, and definitely rich. Very dark, nearly opaque pour. The pecan quality was very difficult to tease out of it, and warming didn’t bring it to light. Chocolate, roasted-to-smoke notes, some wood, all told a very rich and flavorful porter, with a body that veered to the edge of the stouts, with some carbonation but a rich, sweet, clinging oiliness. A light burnt bitterness at the finish. Really enjoyable, whether or not it has any pecan pie (except for sweetness). Bottle, with Thanksgiving dinner.

Bomber. Pours a thick dark brown with a mocha colored frothy head. Nice lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, pecans, and chocolate. Taste of roasted pecans and sweet caramelized brown sugar. Hints of salt and dark fruits. Has a dry sticky finish. Like eating a pecan.

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.

22 oz bottle. Pours dark as night with a 3 finger angry mocha colored head. Not much lace. As to aroma, I’m gonna say what everyone else is saying, forget the pecan stuff. This is a good solid porter, but no pecan in the aroma or taste. Nice chocolate and roast smell and taste. A little sweeter than some porters, the brown sugar perhaps. Solid bodied with a slightly astringent aftertaste. Solid beer.

If all this beer does is teach people how to say pecan properly (yes, it rhymes with Khan), then it is a success. Black pour with a large, brown head that recedes somewhat quickly. Nose is pecan, clove, spice, cinnamon, light earth, faint roast. Flavor is cinnamon, pecan pie, pecans, clove, vanilla, earth, roast. Full mouthfeel, with an ashy tasting medium bitter finish. I like how the smoke plays more of a back end note than a dominant up front flavor.
