2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Graciously shared by GodOfThunder. Pours an auburn/red with an off-white ring of head around the edge of the glass. Mild sweet malt on the nose. Thin, malty, sweet with a some nutty character. Nothing too impressive, overall very muted.

Bottle shared by GodofThunder and his wife, apparently LOL. Pour was a nice golden brown. Aroma was of a praline! Flavor was sweet sugar, pralines and tons of vanilla. Dessert in my mouth. Super sweet and drinkable.

12 ounce bottle shared by cdumler at a tasting. Pours a nice
clear ruby red color with a thin offwhite head. Head retention
and lacing are poor. Pecans are notable present in the aroma
with caramel and hops as well. Taste is pecan pie... sweet and
earthy with pecan and brown sugar notes. There is a slight
bitterness that seems like it comes from the nuts more than the
hops. Medium bodied.

Bottle. Pours a ruddy brown with little head. Aromas are (oddly enough) very reminiscent of pecans and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet and nutty. Mouthfeel is very smooth and almost oily. For a very light and simple beer, this is pretty darn good. For a gimmick beer, it is very good.

Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective Porter tasting at Dogbricks on 12/4/08. Ran out of porters, so we moved on to whatever else was in the house. Pours a clear light brown with a tiny head. Nutty and malty aroma with a little hop. Flavor was malty and surprisingly tart without much nut character.

Draught. Nice dark, copper-colored beer. Decent head. Hard to pin down any specific flavors but, a good-tasting beer

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.

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.
