Cola colored pour, tan head. Spice, light pecan notes, roasted malt, bready aromas. Flavor is sweet, a tad watery, some pecan pie spice notes, maybe a hint of maple. Ok. DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours turbid dark blackish brown with 1-finger tan head. Nose is black patent malt, nuts, cacao. Tastes rich, with a malty flavor up front (black patent), nuts, cacao, brown sugar, hops, and molasses. This one is rich and dense, but I wanted more nutty sweetness. As it is, it isn’t bad, but comes off like a nut brown ale/dry stout hybrid with extra hops and patent malt. allmyvinyl (10932) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 2, 2014

Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a dep brown/black appearance with a dark brown head. Anise, aramel, turtle dessert, chocolate, earthy, roasty malty, slightly grassy/herbal hoppy aroma. Roasty, slightly burnt, big anise, dark chocolate, slightly nutty, quite earthy flavor that finishes a bit watery. Kind of thin with a bit of bitterness on the finish but still kind of watery. alexsdad06 (10640) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small fine beige head. The aroma and flavor have a decent chocolate opening, nutty, some roasted malts and earthy bitterness. The flavor falls off a bit toward the finish, ultimately ending with some ashy character. There is a mild sweetness that comes through. Very smooth and light to medium bodied. It just seems to miss on some key parts by a little bit. DuffMan (10602) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle, the tenth in our tasting lineup of the Beers Of Fall. Dark brown body with a tan head, lacy retreat. Aroma is sweet chocolate and caramel. Flavour is pleasantly malty, milk chocolate and roasted nuts in nice balance. Very tasty. marcus (10571) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 3, 2013

22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine- thanks again, Beau! Pours a deep brown color with a small beige head. The aroma has some definite nuttiness but I never would have pegged it as pecan; also chocolate, toast, earth, fudge, and brown sugar. Flavor of dark chocolate, toast, earth, and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Good porter but doesn’t quite hit the mark.
