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!

Bottle, the tenth in our tasting lineup of the Beers Of Fall. Dark brown body with a tan head, lacy retreat. Aroma is sweet chocolate and caramel. Flavour is pleasantly malty, milk chocolate and roasted nuts in nice balance. Very tasty.

Bottle pour. Very hazel colored with a dark tan head. The aroma is like smelling a pecan pie, it's wonderful. The taste is very thick, a smoky nutty flavor with a malty finish. Overall a great porter, a heavy beer.

I thought Clown Shoes got exactly what they were going for in this one. I think it got better as it warmed up a little bit. Really brought out the pecan pie flavors.

This is a unique porter. Reminds me a bit of Denver's Graham Cracker Porter. This thing oozes fall! I wish the aroma was more nutty, but the taste has some pecan and brown sugar in it. I like it, but I found myself wanting more pecan! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Onslow (1206) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Pour from a 22oz bomber. Clear, dark, brown head. Aroma of old burnt coffee with some sour notes. Taste is sweet at the start with a pleasnat nutty flavor towards the middle then ending with burn grains, though sweetness pervades all along. A little lingering sweetness at the end. Heavy with a full and rich palate that is quite fine.

Bottle thanks to wyzzywyz22, shared on his birthday at his. Good work mate and happy birthday! Poured pretty much black with thin to no head. Aroma is pecan, toffee, nuts, hmm interesting. Flavour is pecan, some fruits, nuts, balsamic vinegar, bit of sweet and sour in the finish. I liked it.

I have been wanting to try this for a while so when I had a quiet evening it was the first to get opened. An excellent release lives up to the name on the label. If you like Derby pie and coffee then this is the perfect beer for you.

Aroma / Appearance - A fluid rich base supports a growing mocha head that surges before slowly collapsing like melting snow. Pecans, dark chocolate, and coffee lend a creamy texture that is a bit unusual for a porter. The presence has a sweet dessert presence.

Flavor / Palate - Coffee and dark chocolate form a foundation for the maltiness that follows. After a few seconds pecans rise up to sit on top. The warm cocoa of the finish caps off a balanced experience with a handful of marshmallows. Drink this with dessert for a great pairing.

jgb9348 (4817) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of pecans, nuts, earth, malt, figs, raisins and a touch of smoke! Medium to Full-bodied; Strong earthy and nutty flavours at first with a very deep pungent toasty flavour and even more pit fruits noticeable, all with some light caramel and smoked peat notes as well. Aftertaste is rich and complex with the full flavours of nuts and earth really meshing well with the sweetness of the caramel and pit fruits. Overall, a nice porter with a huge nuttiness (expected) and a defined sweet flavour from the caramel and pit fruits (not expected) make this great to drink. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Alexandria (Old Town), Virginia on 30-March-2014 for US$7.99 sampled at home here in Washington on 15-June-2014.
