UPDATED: AUG 25, 2008 Sampled at the Hellbilly tasting. Thanks Bockeyhorsey! Pours a nice amber orange with a small tan head. Aroma of brown sugar and roasty nuts and malt. Flavor is similar, but the nuts didnít come through as much on the tongue. Sweet and easy drinking.
If beer and nuts donít mix, why do they make Beer Nuts?

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled via Bockyhorsey at the Hellbilliy tasting. THANK YOU!!! Screw "conventional wisdom" that "nuts and beer donít mix". This is a tasty beer!!! Burnt orange bordering blood-red (a theme of the night), this beer is pure Mississippi sweet tea...natural sugar and buttered-pecan. Yummy. Mild grassy notes reminiscent of the Great Plain states. Head to the storm cellar...a twister is a brewiní!!!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the Hellbilly Phoenix tasting (4/13/08). Bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey. Pours a clear ruby color with minimal white head. Nose is caramel malts, molasses and toasted nuts. Palate is much like it smells: caramel, brown sugar and a touch of spice. Liquid pecan pie? Not my favorite style, but a decent representation I suppose.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Perfect, Reddish-brown color, nice creamy tan head. Aroma of caramel and some nutty mealiness. Flavor is a sweet malt, buttery, caramel, and a distant oiliness of pecans. Mostly a nut flavor from the malts not so much of the pecans. Overall it is a very drinkable beer and very enjoyable. When in Mississippi this is the beer I will look for!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to brentfeesh. Pours dark rust color with small beige head. The aroma is sweet caramel, light earthy notes. The flavor is sweet caramel mostly, with a little bit of a nut meat quality. There’s just a hint of a spicy hop tingle in the finish. Not particularly great, but an easy drink nonetheless.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to BrentFeesh. Clear Brown/red pour with very small faint white head. Aroma is slight caramel. Flavor is caramel with a hint of nuttiness. Thereís really not much pecan going on here with a dry chalky aftertaste. Again there is some nut flavor but really itís just straight bitter caramel. Thin bodie and lacking in carbonation. Nothing exciting about this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle courtesy of brentfeesh. Sweet caramel and nutty aroma. Deep amber body with beige head. Flavor has a sweet malt backbone but also a nutty flavor along with a carbinated cola to it. Sweetness lingers on the palate. Thanks Brent for a new state and a good trade.
