This was such the perfect blend of a porter and a sweet nut! Smooth across the palate quenching my thirst and tickling my tongue for more. Brilliantly named and so well made. Thank you!!!!

Bottle, Beers of Europe. Poured a deep dark brown colour with a dignified tan head. Sweet choc n’ nut nose. Pecan aspect seemed pretty subdued. Sweet flavour with some roast , malts and choc notes A bit on the thin watery side. OK, but a bit disappointing overall PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2014

Tap. Nice dense dark pour with a clingy brown head. Lots of carmelized pecans and sugar sweetness in this. Some dry roasty coffee as well. A bit bitter late but finishes fairly clean. jas321990 (7) - - JAN 19, 2014 does not count
Very little on the nose. No roasted notes, very little nuttiness. Slight astringency.
Jet black pour, mocha head that stays for a minute before forming into a ring.
Solid sweetness mixes with a nuanced nuttiness. Almost no roasted porter flavor.
Nothing noticeable from the palate, but nothing that detracts.
Overall, not a bad beer. Worth drinking again for $3.99/bomber, but nothing I’d seek out.
Vintage dated so I’ll try it again in a year or so.

Shared bomber, snifter. Aroma: brown sugar. Brown sugar and pecan accents that don’t mess an average porter. Dry finish. OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
22oz bottle served in a DFH IPA glass
A - Jet black body with dark brown edges on the bottom of the glass. 2 fingers of firm mocha tan head. Sheets of thick spiderweb lacing left inside the glass.
S - Honey grain, menthol, notes of tart coffee, mint chocolate, charred barley, smells like dry and muted whoppers, hints of prunes when warmed up.
T - Sweet roasted malts, chocolate and cardboard, the oxidization is mild, notes of cold pressed coffee, more sweet than savory, more robust black malts, finishes with mild coffee, chocolate, and a bit of char.
M - Lighter side of full body, medium carbonation, slightly scrubby, great for the style.
A good drinking porter but not what I was expecting from the label. I detected zero nuts and zero maple. But other than that this is a solid little porter. Full bodied with coffee and chocolate malts providing plenty of flavor. Excellent looking beer as well. Drink this beer as a porter and not whats on the label and you’ll love it.
