Bottle. Pours dark black with tan head. Smells of chocolate and pecans. Has a sweet, nutty taste with hints of chocolate and malts. Slightly sweet aftertaste. A good beer DuffMan (10451) - 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. Azand222 (171) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle pour. Very hazel colored with a dark tan head. The aroma is like smelling a pecan pie, it's wonderful. The taste is very thick, a smoky nutty flavor with a malty finish. Overall a great porter, a heavy beer. SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2013
I thought Clown Shoes got exactly what they were going for in this one. I think it got better as it warmed up a little bit. Really brought out the pecan pie flavors. swesson (462) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
This is a unique porter. Reminds me a bit of Denver's Graham Cracker Porter. This thing oozes fall! I wish the aroma was more nutty, but the taste has some pecan and brown sugar in it. I like it, but I found myself wanting more pecan!

Pour from a 22oz bomber. Clear, dark, brown head. Aroma of old burnt coffee with some sour notes. Taste is sweet at the start with a pleasnat nutty flavor towards the middle then ending with burn grains, though sweetness pervades all along. A little lingering sweetness at the end. Heavy with a full and rich palate that is quite fine. Maverick34 (3250) - New York, USA - FEB 9, 2014

Bottle thanks to wyzzywyz22, shared on his birthday at his. Good work mate and happy birthday! Poured pretty much black with thin to no head. Aroma is pecan, toffee, nuts, hmm interesting. Flavour is pecan, some fruits, nuts, balsamic vinegar, bit of sweet and sour in the finish. I liked it. Brigadier (3695) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2014

I have been wanting to try this for a while so when I had a quiet evening it was the first to get opened. An excellent release lives up to the name on the label. If you like Derby pie and coffee then this is the perfect beer for you.
Aroma / Appearance - A fluid rich base supports a growing mocha head that surges before slowly collapsing like melting snow. Pecans, dark chocolate, and coffee lend a creamy texture that is a bit unusual for a porter. The presence has a sweet dessert presence.
Flavor / Palate - Coffee and dark chocolate form a foundation for the maltiness that follows. After a few seconds pecans rise up to sit on top. The warm cocoa of the finish caps off a balanced experience with a handful of marshmallows. Drink this with dessert for a great pairing.
