3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque dark brown with a thin, medium tan head that disappears quickly. Little in the way of retention and lacing. Aroma is of molasses, followed by roasted malts and indistinguishable nuttiness. Taste is generally sweet and becomes more so as the beer warms. Flavors of toasted malts, brown sugar, and, yes, pecans are noticeable. This beer hides its alcohol relatively well, but there is quite a kick (probably aided by the sugars in this beer). The only real disappointment here is the mouthfeel, which is very watery and out of character for a porter. Overall, a great beer, but one that I wouldn’t say tastes like pecan pie. If the whole doesn’t quite equal the sum of the parts, it’s at least worth a try, especially if you are a fan of dessert beers.

Bomber. Nose is nutty, indeed, with heavy dark chocolate and brown sugar, pie spice with wood and a little bourbon, malt. Pours pitch with a large, tight light brown head. Taste is sweet, malty medium body thin at points, but creamy and rich at others; bit airy with a yeasty/mineral touch behind light fruitiness, some bourbon barrel but for deft rounding, and a nice subtle wood component. The pecan element isn’t overdone, just a bit of lipid fullness and I think some mild scorch, but the stronger dark chocolate is sultry and whatever porter is the base is nice. Smooth and satisfying.

Wish list item bottled in October. Nothin wrong with it but not nearly as good as I’d hoped. A decent chocolaty roasted porter with an additional unidentifiable sweetness that I can also guess was pecan. Didn’t leave much of an impression."
