3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample @EBF. Pours a hazy amber color with a small white head. Aroma is carob, a bit of wood, some plantain sweetness, and yeast/starch. Taste is roughly the same, with the beer remaining very smooth given its low(ish) alcohol content. It’s a very solid everyday beer and a nice experiment from the guys.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at EBF. Pours a golden copper toned body with a thin bubbly head. Has a nice and very mild smoked malt aroma, some char and hints of peat malt. A bit nutty and with a light seasoning and smoke. Not sure where the pecan was maybe in the nuttiness. This aged on cedar and pecans probably would have made this beer. Okay.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pouring at EBF’s Night of the Barrels. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin white head. Smokey. Sweet marshmallow flavors, weird smoke. This was gross and was dumped very quickly. Since this was the ‘special’ version on more pecan wood for the Night of the Barrels I quickly decided I was not about to go for the regular version during session one. Terrible.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I didn’t think this was so bad, just rather forgettable. Aroma is mild sweetness and some peanut butter/roast pecan. Flavor is relatively sweet, rather muddled carob and pecan. Shorts Carob Stout had far more carob presence. Medium mouthfeel, lightly creamy. Medium toasted flavor. Just kinda meh. nutty and sweet

EBF beer, really one of the worst beers of the weekend, it was just terrible. There was close to no hints of any pecan taste. try again DFH, next time make this taste like something.
