Caramel color. Smell of malt,pecans, minor hops and caramel. Tastes the same but light. You can defiantly taste the pecans.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of brentfreesh poured medium brown with an oily brownish head that fades quickly. Big nut aroma. Medium body with slight bitterness at the beginning and nice nut flavor at the end. Surpised when the aroma was big that the flavor was not. Nice surprise. Not bad just not my cup of tea.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

draft. This is a nice beer. Nothing special. Like Newcastle with maple syrup. Good for a ms brew.
