Aroma: This one has a lot of roasted malts, plus some caramel and cocoa on the nose
Appearance: This one is a brown colored beer with a small light brown head
Flavor: The flavor is roasty and malty, not super sweet, with minimal bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly full on this one, and it has a dry, roasty mouthfeel to it
This is a solid roasted porter, I didn’t get a ton of pecan presence, I mostly got dry/roasty malts, but I still enjoyed it.
A nicely blended Porter. I understand the high ratings. Full body with notes of vanilla, smoke, roasted malt, chocolate and dry dark malty coffee finish.
I didn’t notice the pecan too much, but the hint of nut was apparent. BelgianBeerGal (4066) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Draft at Fort Worth Flying Saucer. First 512 beer and wow was this nice. Big, bold porter that honestly seemed barrel aged: notes of coffee, vanilla and booze. Just a hint of the pecan nuttiness. Really nice surprise.

Nitro tap. Pours dark brown/black with abundant creamy tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and chocolate aroma with a hint of pecan. Taste notes of coffee, chocolate with only the slightest hint of pecans. Full rich body. Well balanced bitterness. Wish the pecans were more prominent. jzzbassman (1634) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2012
On tap at The Ginger Man Ft. Worth. Pours Dark Brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, and some chocolate. Compared to a beer like Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan, I don’t get much pecan, but it is a nice typical porter flavor, Delirium (669) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011
Draught. Pours dark brown-black with a small off-white head. Aroma is roasty and ashy, with just the barest hint of pecans. Flavor is similar, with the pecans coming in a little more in the finish. Well done; it’s mostly a roasty porter with the pecans adding an extra twist, but doesn’t go overboard like some of the examples that seem to just dump in a pile of nut extract.

GABF 2011. Black with a small tan head. Big aroma of chocolate malt, roasted pecans, and a weird grassy hop tone thrown in...still smells great. Nice chocolaty pecan taste, with some toasty grains. Body is a little light though, and isn’t as sweet as I feel it should be.
