Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cocoa, carmel, light pecan and light vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, carmel, light pecan and a hint of vanilla with a smooth cocoa finish. omhper (25153) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2010
Bottled, thanks Cletus! Hazy copper colour, huge creamy head. Floral strawberry nose. Fairly sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel and light-medium body. Some lingonberries. The pecan flavour is akin to chestnut, but nuttier and doesn’t cone with any of the acidity those beers generally have. Low hop rate and only slight bitterness.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 (Bottle, thanks omhper) Pours hazy red with an off-white head. The aroma is quite yeasty with tones of dough. Fruity, light toasty and light nutty. The flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Nuts, fruits and light caramel/toffee toast. The mouthfeel is watery, clean and medium carbonated. Fruity aftertaste. Light bodied. alexsdad06 (10434) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2010
12 oz. bottle from a BA BIF. Pours a clear deep copper brown color with a rapidly diminishing medium sized off white head. The aroma is mild to moderately sweet malt, slightly nutty, mild caramel and maple and lightly fruity. The flavor is is mildly sweet malt, caramel, lightly nutty with a slightly bitter finish. There were slight metallic notes, but nothing too distracting. Overall, not a bad brown, just nothing very special either. SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2010

Bottle bonus thanks to garmonbozia. Clear amber brown pour, little carbonation and a sightly sweet matly aroma. Flavor is pecan pie, malt, brown sugar and a little herbal on the finish. Not bad, pretty solid brown ale with a pecan twist. angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2010

Bottle thanks to mora2000. Pours a ruby brown color with limited head. Nose is nutty shells and caramel. Taste is dusty nectarines and I also wrote WTF? nearbeer (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 21, 2010
12 oz, bb 05-11-10. Clear, ruby-brown with a creamy one-finger head that endures. Nose of caramel, toasted nut shell, and light bitter herb. Flavor is molasses-covered pecan, dark banana bread, and more toasted pecan shell. Light cocoa flavor also helps the bittering a bit. Medium body is smoothly carbonated, a bit sweet, but very drinkable. Probably the best 4% abv beer I’ve ever had! BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle thanks to mora2000 for the Mississippi rate. Pours with a fading tan head and a brown-bronze body. Aroma of brown sugar, sweetness and corn meal. Taste is bland, sweet, pecan, brown sugar and caramel. Fizzy and dry.
