3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich brown with a thin white head. It has an aroma of roasted nuts and roasted barley. It tastes of nutty, roasted barley with a hint of fruit in the aftertaste. It has an okay mouthfeel, but is perhaps a bit thin (something Iíve commonly found in brown ales). Not a bad beer, but not exceptional.

Extra courtesy of moejuck - thanks Joe. I do love me a good brown ale, and I think this qualifies. Not super-nutty, but evidence of that sweet pecan oily flavor is definitely there, minus the skins. A nice red malt flavor, milk and sugar, plus maybe a hint of oxidation. The flavor here was just a BIT thin - if it were just a bit more fortified and maybe a little spicier this would be one raging beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via trade thanks to PALMEJ1 on BeerAdvocate. Pours a clear medium amber-brown color with a nice off-white head. Aroma is malty and nutty with caramel, pecans, and maple syrup. Flavor is similarly malty and nutty. Starts off with some good caramel malt and maple syrup, then finishes with a sweet candied pecan flavor. Medium body with average carbonation. Very drinkable. Overall this is a nicely done beer, and my first from the state of Mississippi.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Josh or ericandersnavy. Iím guessing Josh, cause the cap isnít taped down! Pours a beautiful ruddy copper with a two finger fine beige head. It actually smells like pecans. Medium body with rather creamy carbonation. Flavor is nutty and roast caramel, with a mild amount of bitter. This stuff is really smooth and lightly nut astringent. Quite tasty. Excellent and better than average brown ale.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Saw this in a gas station close to Bay St. Louis, just off I-10 and thought it might be good. Had a draft pour a few days later in Pensacola at Hopjackís. I am NOT a fan of brown ales, but Iíll be damned if this isnít amazing. I want to know how they got all that roast pecan into the aroma. Nice, sweetish, and carmelly with a slight pecan aftertaste. Leaves a nice film on the roof of your mouth. Very nice. Iíd love to try other beers by this brewery.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. clear amber-brown pour with a thin light tan head and a ring of retention. nutty aroma with brown sugar, roasted malts and caramel. sweet brown sugar maltiness in the taste with the expected nuts and caramel. thin to medium oily palate. ok - but definitely too sugary for my tastes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a mostly clear mahogany brown color topped by a small, foamy tan colored head that settles quickly to a thin film. The aroma shows the sweet caramel malt base with hints of brown sugar, and candied nuts. I donít get too much of the pecan like I was expecting. The flavor follows with the caramel and brown sugar malt to go with some candied sugar and a touch of nuts. Some earthy hops on the finish add a nice bitterness to balance out the sweetness. Medium bodied and fairly smooth and just a touch syrupy with a sweet, dry finish. I didní get too much of the pecan like I was hoping, but it was still a nice session brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown color. Two-finger head of tan foam. Retention is okay and lacing is minimal.
Roasted pecans and toasted malts. Light caramel notes. Mostly, it just smells lightly sweet.
Good, solid brown ale, with a nice level of nuttiness. Some hints of pecan flavor and acidity. Light caramel maltiness. Biscuity.
Light body. Nice and smooth.
This would be a great session beer. Low ABV, which is undetectable, when drinking. Good, smooth and easy to drink.
