12 oz bottle from beer club: Poured a medium brown with an off white head, nose of molasses and roasted malts and a bit of pecans, flavor was sweet and smooth, nice roasted malt notes with a pleasant note of pecans in the finish. Did remind me of pecan pie, albeit with much less sugar. Very nice! carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2010
From bottle. Pours deep red amber with tiny white head. Just a bit of carbonation. Very smooth -- difficult at first to notice distinct flavors. Some sweet malts and a bit of tart flavor. Slight bitterness but surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Not my favorite style, but I like this one. PhatB420 (840) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 20, 2010
Great dark tan color, taste is secertly pecan with touches of almond, fig, and plumb. goes down sooo smooth and taste pretty good for an almost fruity beer. I like this as its easr drinking with a touch of flare you dont find many other places or in brews. 12oz from beer of the month club. ectuohy27 (1175) - ESTONIA - APR 19, 2010
Finally, an interesting brew from yon Month Club, which I’ve since dropped--this is indeed distinctive, at least according to its ingredients and origin. There is some balance between a salty hoppiness [not much nutty flavor tho, and if it weren’t on the label i couldn’t pick out the pecans] and a malty sweetness. For that, it’s still definitely overrated and not worth seeking out on its own. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 From my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-brown with a small beige head that faded quickly but left good lacing. The aroma was sweet toasted nut, caramel and faint fruits - a bit light but very pleasant. The flavor was toasted caramel, sour pecan and light fruits. A sugary and woody undertone surrounded and the finish was long with sweet pecan and caramel. Surprisingly full bodied and smooth. The aroma and flavor elements in this one were subtle but quite remarkable. Very nice.

12 oz bottle pour from beer of the month club. pours clear reddish brown with a small shrinking tan head. no lacing. aroma is sweet malt with just a touch of earthiness. body is a weird mix of full and thin with light carbonation and lightly bitter aftertaste. I was really intrigued by this beer in anticipation of its flavor and was severly let down. I was hoping for some real nuttiness and found none. Flavor is so balanced and smooth that I can’t really discern any particular tastes from the other. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - APR 14, 2010
Bottle, clear brown color with a small head. Aroma has toasted malts, nuts and sweetness. A little musty. Taste is malty and nutty and pretty light overall. Bland and odd for my taste. italianjohn (3133) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2010
Dark amber/brown pour tan head .... aroma of nuts and sweet caramel malt .... taste of nuts and caramel .... sweet and mellow light carbonation and very sessionable .... a good nutty brown ale but the pecans do not really give off any special flavor just a usual nut flavor ... a good beer for sure though zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours amber/orange/red, with an off white head. Aroma is nuts and caramel. Flavor is caramel, nuts and malt. Not bad. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Malty with a toasted malt body, caramel malt bill with some light nuts. Light and toasty with a soft carbonation to finish. Decent session ale.
