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!

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 (1102) - 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.

Pours clear dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel. Toasted malt and sweet caramel flavor with some chocolate and nuttiness. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a slightly dry finish. A nice porter.

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bomber from TW. Dark brown pour with a medium beige head which fades to a rim quickly and leaves moderate lace. Nose is chocolate and roast malt. Medium, smooth body and moderate carbonation, with a touch of sticky chocolate milk near the finish. Chocolate, toffee, nuts, pine and dark toast. Finish is lightly sweet, with more nuts and chocolate. Delicious - goes easy on the ’pecan pie’ flavors, which is a good thing. A solid porter, shaded towards the sweet side of things.

From a bottle poured a dark brown color and a small amount of head. Light toasted malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

bhensonb (10354) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Thanks to mixmasterob for this bomber. Pours quite dark brown/black with a good tan head - creamy mostly. Aroma is chocolate with some distinct brown sugar and/or treacle. Full bodied. Flavor starts with chocolate, has some coffee, and there is a certain pecan nuttiness reminding of sugared pecans. Mainly however this is towards dry, bitter and coffee for a finish. Tho that nut thing is always hanging around.

Beerenberger (1273) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Rich roasty aroma with nuts, hints of chocolate and dark fruit. A deep opaque brown pour with a vibrant tan head which slowly gives way to a tan ring and sticky lacing. The taste is roasted malts, pecan notes, and a bit of grain in the finish and aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, smooth, with well balanced carbonation. Overall, a nice effort from Clown Shoes. Would buy again.

Ok. Disclaimer: I live in a part of the country where every yard has at least a couple of pecan trees and it’s not uncommon to see orchards that line the roads for a mile or more. Most of us pronounce this word as "PEA-can", not the "pub-CAHN" more common in places that don’t have pecan trees. Because of this, it feels immoral to pronounce the name of this beer in a way that makes the pun make sense. Other than that, a good beer. There’s some slight harshness in the finish. Really wish the pecans were more obvious, bit a good beer.
