We don’t blame you if you don’t believe us, but this beer was born in a dream. Sean arrived at the brewery one day, having woken from a dream where we brewed two beers. One was made with boiled peanuts, and the other with pecans. For logistical reasons, among others, we decided we had to make with ones with pecans. After sourcing 150 lbs of them, we split them up amongst ourselves, roasting every last nut in our respective home ovens. 5 pounds of those home-roasted pecans were added per barrel of this American brown ale, imparting a great nutty nose that presents itself more as the beer warms up.

Dark brown ale with light head that rises when swirled. Smells of nuts, toffee and chocolate malt balls. Taste is maybe not quite as complex, but still good. Lots of nutty and almost butter pecan syrup notes in the flavor. The finish is just a little boring. Its not quite sticky and its not quite dry, but there is no real lingering flavor besides an impression of sweetness.

Malty nutty brown ale, with some pecan taste. A big brown foamer. OK drinkability. Thanks for the extra, Brian.

Can poured into a snifter. 3.0 A: A great deal overcarbonated - this took a half dozen pours to get a full glass. Deep brown practically black color. Head is a beige foam. Hard to judge retention on an overcarbed brew, but a short ring of lacing is left. 2.75 S: Dry, dusty toastiness. The pecans are rather tame and barely detectable. In fact, this is much less nutty than at least half of the browns out there that don’t have nuts in them. Mild tangy caramel. Underwhelming here. 2.0 T: The tanginess is stronger in the taste. I’m not sure if this is due to an early infection, a stange manifestation of the overcarbonation, or just the way that it’s supposed to be. In any case, it doesn’t taste great. Again there’s a dry toastiness and just a slight nuttiness. 1.75 M: Lighter medium body. Well overcarbonated. Somewhat watery rather than creamy. 1.75 D: Obviously not what the brewer intended, but I have to review the result rather and not the plan. ★ 978 characters DavoleBomb, Jan 11, 2016

Slightly fruity mixed with pecan smell... Quite good, would be slightly better if a little stronger, taste isn’t as good, pecan is prominent which makes it unique but not great, quite nutty...lingers decently, very low hops, improves a bit with time,

From a tap to a pint glass. The pour is unfiltered dark ish red . The pour has a pecan flavor but light pecan in aroma. Medium body and better than more craft brown ales.

22 oz. from the tap at Skull Creek Boathouse on Hilton Head Island. Great food. Do the Sunday brunch. Great color. Great taste. Quite delicious.

Mehhh. Tap at brewery. Sounds awesome but flops. Sort of nutty possibly some pecan flavors but I’d be lying if I said I could taste it. Sooooooo end oh rating.

On draft @ HC. Dark brown with slight head. Very slight nutty aroma. Medium body, a bit chewy. Overall, a surprisingly heavy beer. Subtle earthy, nut finish.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2013
(Draught) Pours a murky copper-brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, honey, pecan, and roasted grain. Flavor of pecan, caramel, grain, and some butter.
