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 you’ll just end up ordering another anyway! medallaisla (91) - PUERTO RICO - AUG 8, 2012
Coffee, dark chocolate in the aroma.
Taste: Roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and yes, pecans.
ABV very well hidden. wchesser (2121) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Cask conditioned. Nose is vanilla and cocoa notes. Big full mouthfeel with terrific caramel sweetness. The pecan definitely comes through in the flavor, especially on the midpallete and aftertaste, with just a hint of nutty bitterness with terrific balance. Need to find a few bottles to take back to Colorado. darla70 (30) - - AUG 28, 2015
Tasty and toasty with chocolate backbone slight nutty hints. Nice lacing with a light creamy head. BgThang (126) - Texas, USA - APR 26, 2009
Black as night falls, nice mocha head. The nut on the nose come through a tad. You also get roasty, chocolate on the nose.
The mouthfeel is that of silky with some medium body. Smoke comes in just slighty then the roasted chocolate and on the finish the pecan makes a cameo.

I am very partial to Porters. And this Porter lands near the Meantime Porter as far as my favorites. In my top 2, most certainly. This Porter is good in a much different way. It has a great chocolate/coffee aroma to it, and has a more malty taste to it. The first batch of it I tried wasn’t nearly as dry as the last batch I tasted, but in both cases, the beer didn’t disappoint. When you read Pecan, don’t expect sweet. It is still very much a Porter, but with a little bit of added malt to it. Which some will like, and other won’t. Mike739 (2) - - NOV 9, 2012 does not count
Beautiful caramel head, with a subtle and delicious hint of chocolate pecan. One of the best porters I've had.

From notes, 5/4/11:
Had this one on tap at The Draft Pick in Austin.
Aroma: Coffee, roasted malts, slight chocolaty sweetness, and of course, pecans.
Appearance: Poured a deep dark brown into a room temp pint glass with minimal head. Tan head quickly dissipated and left slight spiderweb lacing.
Taste: Loved the nutty roastiness and coffee flavors true to the style.
Palate: Thick for a porter, low carbonation, and damn smooth.
Overall: Definitely one of my favorite porters to date. rgf001 (324) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2015
