I tried both the regular and cask versions. Cask was less carbonated which I thought let the pecan flavor come through better. Even from a regular keg, a rich, flavorful porter. IPAsavedMYlife (346) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Great porter. I wasn’t smelling or tasting the Pecan flavor, but other than that, all the notes of a great porter. Flicka (19) - Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Very dark pour. I like the smell better than the taste. Taste is bitter but not too bad. The aftertaste has more flavor than the initial taste. crajun (1243) - , Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2011
UPDATED: APR 13, 2017 Proof 468 of I didn’t know wtf I was doing years ago. Bumped up again from 3.8. Maybe thickest portr ever? Not too much nuts but tons and tons of roasted stuff. Smoke was more than I remembered. More stout than porter. Great................ Re- rate 04/14. raised score from 3.4......really enjoyed it on draft this time - much more so than previous two times; will try again to see if this is a 4 as it was this time. much more flavor profile this time - got nuts, chocolate and others, low carbonation. great stuff - would give 4 based off this tasting but leaving lower due to previous ratings............................waited awhile for this one; had on tap at whisky cake in Plano.. no aroma; very dark pour; perfect thinckness/mouthfeel - dissapointed in the taste though... smooth on front end, is that smokeyness (probably it is the pecan flavor)?? too strong/bitter on back end - I taste no banana or chocolate like others..dissapointed
re rate 10/11 - had draft at Plano Gingerman; more flavor but still nothing outstantding - nothing stands out... DerHopKopf (46) - Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Draft in pint glass. Pours black with a thick tan head. The aroma is mostly roasted malts with hints of candy and coffee. Taste is very sweet with roasted malts contributing the most - notes of chocolate/coffee. Little bitter taste to bring sweetness back a little and very slight alcohol. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with minimal carbonation. A very easy drink that tastes great- will definitely get again.

This pretty, classic porter from the People’s Democratic Republic of Austin poured out a deep black color with a fine aroma of roasted malt, burnt sugar and coffee. The taste is robust and somewhat tart at the front end, with chocolate and coffee. Not much pecan. A nice, mid-alcohol palate with low carbonation, this beer tasted better (to me) as the pint was consumed. And the weather, still cool, was perfect for it.

Dark chocolate, light smoke, caramel. Pretty burnt and bitter taste for me though. I don’t get much pecan either. I wish it tasted like a pecan pie Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2011 On cask at the Flying Saucer in Addison-poured into a goblet.nice white head that eventually disappeared atop a nice coffee color. the pecan comes through in the aroma as well as the flavor and is just right. roasted coffee and slight chocolate with the slightest ting of hops.

dark rich porter with strong sweet and nutty aroma. taste is sweet, body medium. long finish. carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2010
On tap at Little Woodrows in Rice Village. Pours opaque with frothy tan head. Aroma is coffee, smoke, and toasted malt. One swig and this was a real surprise. Very smooth and complex. Delicious and easy to drink, with a reminder of Stone’s smoked porter without as many hops, just a smooth, drinkable, outstanding porter.
