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!

Aroma has pecan, vanilla, brown sugar, cream, and a little metallic funk that breathed off after a minute. Flavor has vanilla, nuts, and a little coffee, with a really creamy mouthfeel. Roast coffee bitterness in the finish. Really good.

kathouse (1105) - Nevada, USA - NOV 20, 2012
From the bottle, deep brown with a thin but persistent tan foam. Chocolate and nuts and maybe a touch of charcoal. Body is full of smokey wood, chocolate, and a smooth buttery pecan finish.

wlajwl (4053) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2012
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.

Very, very dark brown with a tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of roast, pecans, and mocha. Taste is full of mocha and bitterness. Medium bodied and a little creamy.

burg326 (3878) - Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2012
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.

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pours dark unclear with a decent beige head. The aroma brings some spices from the fall, but not pecans persay. The flavor brings a toasted malty porter with some bitter hoppy notes as well. The flavor of the pecans are not prevalent and there is some sweetness, not necessarily brown sugar though.

Imaena (1887) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. This beer has a faint hoppy aroma which hints at its fairly dry character. I expected something sweeter with a thicker body. It is a good dry London porter - but where the Pecans enter other than a faint nuttiness in the finish I am unsure.
