Thats right, the first seasonal offering (of many to come ) from (512) Brewing Company was brewed this week. Its a Robust Porter brewed with Pecans. Look for this beer to be released sometime in late October - We cant release it until theres at least a hint of cool weather in the air! This nearly black Porter is made with US 2-row and Crystal malts along with Bairds Chocolate and Black malts. Mild smooth hop bitterness is contrasted with sharp black malt bitterness. It has a full body and malty sweetness balanced with subtle pecan aroma and flavor from locally grown pecans. Yet another true Austin original!

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 (1588) - 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 dont get much pecan, but it is a nice typical porter flavor,

Delirium (661) - 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; its mostly a roasty porter with the pecans adding an extra twist, but doesnt go overboard like some of the examples that seem to just dump in a pile of nut extract.

onceblind (8174) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2011
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 isnt as sweet as I feel it should be.

hashbrown (8) - Houston, - NOV 1, 2011 does not count
Roasted malts, pecan aroma! This is a delicious beer! If you start with this beer, finish with this beer. The taste will spoil all other flavors and youll just end up ordering another anyway!

10.14.2011 - Houston, TX On Tap Extreme smokey taste overpowers the underlying pecan charm. Drink it slow, the finish lasts...

chibuck (3511) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Draft... Dark brown, almost black, very light tan head, only leaves a ring, disappointing.... Great nose, brown sugar, roast, molasses and a hint of vanilla, really well rounded... Tastes a little boring, flavors to muted and mixed together, roasted chocolate with a bit of vanilla, its good but wish something came to the forefront more

On tap at the Flying Saucer in my home-town of Houston mutha-fuckin Texas.. Chocolate brown pour with mocha head. Aromas of pecans. Smooth and mellow with roasted malt, pecan, and mocha flavors. Much better than the BA version.....
