COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a bigger, bolder version of our mainstay Pecan Porter, with a richer finish. Two months on recently emptied Jack Daniels select barrels imparted a wonderful vanilla character from the oak and a pleasant amount of whiskey nose and flavor.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle: Poured a deep black color porter with a nice light brown foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt notes with black chocolates with subtle pecan notes. Whiskey notes are also easily noticeable and provided a nice smooth finish to the beer. Body is a bit thinner then I was expected with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very nice beer but cant say that pecan are as apparent as I would have expected.

Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to Daniel for this one! Black with a medium diminishing brown head and some lacing. Aroma is of whiskey (not overpowering), vanilla, nuts, chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is about the same with a pleasant subtle acidic presence. Medium body. Low to medium carbonation. Superb balance. Good use of the whiskey barrels. One of the best barrel-aged porter Ive tried so far. Nice beer!

Dark brown color. Sweet malty pecan pie nose. Really smooth and silky. Malty smooth mouth, fairly sweet but enjoyable. Nice. But boozy.

22 ounce bottle pours a dark brown, almost black color, aromas of light pecans, roasted malt, booze, oak, light vanilla, and some light coco. flavors are the same, not much nuts in the flavor, kind of dominated by the booze taste, but all the aromas are there. Glad I finally got to try this one, a really nice beer overall that I would love to drink again.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some pecans, some light whiskey and oak, hints of chocolate, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A solid beer.

On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a medium porter brown with an off-tan head. Nose is big whiskey, some roasted malts, some chocolate, and some oak. Flavor is big whiskey with some chocolate, some roast, and hints of vanilla and wood. Medium in body and interesting overall.

Sampled at the GABF 2015. Poured a dark brown color with tan head. Nose is whiskey and chocolate malts. Medium in body. So sign of the alcohol. The flavor is good balance of whiskey barrel and chocolate plus pecans. The whiskey adds a lot to the finish. Really good

Thanks go out to wagenvolks for getting this beer out my way. Shared at a recent tasting and served in a Captain Lawrence tulip. Pours a dark brown color with a thin, fizzy tan head and some sparse lacing afterward. The nose carries some brown sugar alongside a bit of intermingling chocolate and roast. Bit of a nutty character is there along with a moderate whiskey-barrel presence. The flavor isnt quite as pungent or integrated, with some oak and whiskey plus background chocolate and roast. The feel is nice--medium body that is slightly-creamy with light carbonation. Overall, definitely a pretty solid brew. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-25-2011
