2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Dark black body with a light tan head that quickly fades to nothing, giving the beer the appearance of cola in the glass.
Aroma: There is a chocolate aroma and a slight note of alcohol. I don’t pick up any pecans in the aroma.
Taste: I pick up a fresh roasted coffee flavor, some toasted bread, and a bit of an oak flavor.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is medium bodied but doesn’t coat the mouth. A hint o f roasted bitterness is left on the palate.
Overall: I didn’t get any pecan flavor in this beer, which is a pretty big disappointment considering the picture of pecans and use of the word "pecan" in the title of the beer. It’s a decent porter but it doesn’t deliver what is advertised. I wouldn’t pick it up again.

Large beige head atop a nearly black body and good lacing. Roasted malt aroma with swirls of chocolate, dark fruit and modest nuttiness. Smooth, moderately sweet, toasted malt taste with caramel and toffee along side the subltleness of the pecans. Aftertaste stays sweet. Full bodied, softly carbonated mouthfeel and a long lasting finish.

Bottle. Black pour with a dense, medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate notes and toasted nuts. Taste is roasted malt, sweet chocolate, toasted nut, light earthy hops and caramel. Body is medium and rather chewy with a dense, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more roasted malt, toasted nuts, dark bread, caramel and chocolate notes. Very nice!
