COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
That’s right, the first seasonal offering (of many to come ) from (512) Brewing Company was brewed this week. It’s a Robust Porter brewed with Pecans. Look for this beer to be released sometime in late October - We can’t release it until there’s 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 Baird’s 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!

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2012
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Beautiful, gorgeous black drink with a cappuccino head that settles at about a half centimeter of thickness. The aroma is sweet with notes of toffee, chocolate, caramel, roasted barley, and of course, nuts. The taste is mellow and gentle on the tongue, following these notes. The pecan flavor is brought out nicely. Very nice body for a porter. I really like it. Not one-dimensional at all.

Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2012
16oz draught pint. I smell coffee in the aroma. Black color, light head and lacing. Taste reminds me more of coffee than pecans. Tastes too black and bitter for me, but not quite full enough to be a session beer. Just OK compared to other porters, I like it about as much as I like flavored coffees (not very much)

decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Brown pour with light tan head and lace. Aroma is mostly coffee with a hinto pecan. Light sweet malt, coffee and a finishing pecan that is subtle but there for sure. A tad thin and watery but very original beer.

Aroma: Smells wonderfully malty with a hint of cream sweet Appearance: Very dark (35+SRM), small sand colored lace ring Taste: Very nice malty sweetness, milk chocolates mingling nicely with dark stone fruits Palate: It nicely coats the mouth and is deceptively smooth Overall: Very enjoyable, constantly on the lookout for more

ben4321 (6840) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2012 Location: Draft at Ginger Man- Austin, 2/17/12

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
Overall Impression: 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.

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2012
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.

4.4
BelgianBeerGal (4256) - 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.

3.7
gregner (19) - Cedar Park, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2012
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.

3.6
jzzbassman (1638) - 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,
