3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours clear brown with some white head. Nose suggests that this will be a sweet drink. There is some nutty and toffee with some fruity berry esters. Yep, the flavor is pretty sweet. Again, kind of a mix of berries and nuts. Fuller body. balanced finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective Porter tasting on 12/4/08: The beer pours a clear orange-brown color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy and spotty lacing. Aroma of lightly roasted pecans and malt. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt and pecan, as well as a touch of fruit. The finish is short and lightly nutty. Slightly above average overall, and finally I have gotten to try a beer from Mississippi.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with copper to gold edges and tan head. The aroma is roasty and nutty to go along with crystal type malts and mild cherry hard candy sweetness. The taste begins with some roasted malts mixing with crystal malts and then moving more and more nutty. By midway some malt sweetness joins in with the rich nuttiness and carries the experience into the finish. Tasty nut brown.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Joe, my first beer from Mississippi. Pours a very pleasant amber redbrowncolor with a medium off white head. I really love the aroma pecan pie, very sweet, loads of toasted malts, and caramel, but very strong pecan notes What an aroma, pure goodness The flavor is pretty sweet, loads of rich caramel, toasted malts, a light hop bitterness that is refreshing, and light vestiges of pecans. More of a roasted nut flavor. A medium and smooth mouthfeel. Very nice. Leaves your palate clean and with a bit of sweetness.

A nice ale. If the label didn’t make it clear that pecans were present in the brew, I probably wouldn’t have noticed them. To me, this is simply a nice ale with a full caramel malty flavor. The finish is understated and consists of typical hop bite.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
whopping thanks to deepsouth(BA) for this extra in my magical case of goodies.
This is my second time drinking this wonderful brew. Being the only beer I’ve had from the Mississippi Brewery, I’m quiet impressed with the originality inparticular. A nice fluffy tan heads fades into a nice thin layer atop a wonderful looking amber/copper with a slow rising carbonation that is as much at ease as the south itself. Wow that is an absolutely awesome aroma of Pecans. Not just pecans but roasted pecans. A nice robust and hearty dark malt accompany the roasted Pecans on their way up and into my nostrils. Elegantly smooth with a nice roasted malt character with a huge pecan punch throughout. It is ridiculously nutty with those roasted pecans leading the charge! This beer has a nice mellow, relaxed light to medium bodied with a very clean aftertaste. This beer is easy to drink even on a hot [and as required by universal code of torture], humid and nasty day [in Boston]. Add this one to you list of things to try! I would tell you more about how good this beer is but unless you’ve had one, you wouldn’t get it. No really, it’s nothing personal, you really wouldn’t get it.

12 fl oz bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. Pours clear and golden orange with a slowly collapsing tan head. Roasted malty and slight metallic aroma. Mild spiced flavored with a nice caramelish base flavour and mild roasted note. Ends smooth and light spiced. Somewhat perfumed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Appearance: Pours a clear, brown body topped with a thin ring of whitish bubbles.
Smell: Aroma smelling of toasted nuts and caramel. Simple, but nice enough for a brown ale.
Taste: Nutty, caramel blend with a reasonable amount of malty sweetness. Generally drying throughout, even as a light bitterness sets in. Dry finish with a lingering nuttiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Mostly pleasant, pretty smooth, and generally tasty -- it’s an okay brown ale.
Update: Recently had a far better experience with Southern Pecan. A bottle packed with more flavor and, I dare say, more smiles.
