3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle to glass
Aroma-very malty, a little bit of maple syrup, a little bit less chocolate, dash of coffee and nuts
Appearance-clear dark amber with a slowly dissipating head
Taste-Medium sweetness on the tongue, almost no bitterness detected
Palate-it’s pleasant and very easy to drink. Extremely smooth and pretty tasty. Hard for me to sense the pecans though! I’d drink again.

It poured an amber brown color with a small tan head. The aroma was of roasted nuts, maple, sugar, toffee, caramel and some chocolate. The taste was similar with a little lingering bitterness. It had a medium body, with a creamy texture and medium carbonation.

12oz bottle from Total Wine-Greenville S.C. courtesy of Zizzybalubba. (Thanks G) Light brown hue, murky clarity with 1 finger thick off-white head. Very lively body particles. Heavy floral notes, light citrus hop, earthy, vanilla aromas. Strong malt and pecan shell up front, sweet finish (cake icing). More of a light fruit finish as it warms. Oily texture, soft carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium brown pour with an off white head. Aromas of caramel malts and pecans. Flavor is similar. Not bad but far from exceptional. It just needs more complexities to it. Taste is just too standard issue.

Pours a medium brown with a short, tan head. It has a somewhat faint, sweet aroma with a sweet malty flavor, a nutty backbone and a great pecan aftertaste over a smooth body.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours mahogany with red hues. Aroma of caramel, sugar daddy (candy), nuts. Flavor of caramel, bread, pecans, vanilla, brown sugar. A fairly sweet and bread brown ale. Sweet and nutty like a pecan sweet roll. Not bad flavors, but a bit too sweet for my liking.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle dated 3/11 served in pint glass (from 2011 notes). I couldn’t get much of a head on this one and it was gone almost before I took my first sip.
A nice clear brown liquid but almost no head.
Aroma: nutty aroma with toasted malt and hints of bourbon and hops.
T - Starts too sweet but nice sweet/bitter balance in the finish. Pecan nuts appear mainly in the finish.
O - a little bit different, otherwise not much to recommend.
