I really like this and I am not a brown ale fan. 12 oz. bottle to dimpled mug. Pours reddish brown with medium head that lasts a short while with some spotty lacing. Initial impression is earthy malt with bread and yeast. A bitterish coffee and pecan flavor with a quick finish. If there is a weakness it is with the body, all that flavor and not enough body. I first had this at a bar in New Orleans, and am still intrigued with the flavor the pecans impart on this brew. HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear brown with an orangeish hue with a creamy quickly collapsing light tan head. Nose is lightly roasted malt, caramel, and toasted nuts. Body is very thin with a somewhat watery mouth feel and fizzy carbonation. Flavor is semi sweet roasted malt, nuts, slightly acidic and metallic, big extract notes, and caramel. Finishes lightly nutty and lightly bitter. Not a horrible brown but boring. mar (5442) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2010
bottle thanks to mora2000 from ba. brown with a cream head. nose is pecans and nuts. decent on the palate with a flavor of nothing but pecans. Stellaaaa (270) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Pours a rich brown with a thin white head. It has an aroma of roasted nuts and roasted barley. It tastes of nutty, roasted barley with a hint of fruit in the aftertaste. It has an okay mouthfeel, but is perhaps a bit thin (something I’ve commonly found in brown ales). Not a bad beer, but not exceptional. ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Extra courtesy of moejuck - thanks Joe. I do love me a good brown ale, and I think this qualifies. Not super-nutty, but evidence of that sweet pecan oily flavor is definitely there, minus the skins. A nice red malt flavor, milk and sugar, plus maybe a hint of oxidation. The flavor here was just a BIT thin - if it were just a bit more fortified and maybe a little spicier this would be one raging beer.

Bottle via trade thanks to PALMEJ1 on BeerAdvocate. Pours a clear medium amber-brown color with a nice off-white head. Aroma is malty and nutty with caramel, pecans, and maple syrup. Flavor is similarly malty and nutty. Starts off with some good caramel malt and maple syrup, then finishes with a sweet candied pecan flavor. Medium body with average carbonation. Very drinkable. Overall this is a nicely done beer, and my first from the state of Mississippi. SrSilliGose (3332) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 11, 2009
bottle from thecheeseman- thanks daniel. pours a clear copper with a small offwhite head. notes of caramel, chocolate, nuts. not too bad. bhensonb (15756) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Bottle from Josh or ericandersnavy. I’m guessing Josh, cause the cap isn’t taped down! Pours a beautiful ruddy copper with a two finger fine beige head. It actually smells like pecans. Medium body with rather creamy carbonation. Flavor is nutty and roast caramel, with a mild amount of bitter. This stuff is really smooth and lightly nut astringent. Quite tasty. Excellent and better than average brown ale. jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Saw this in a gas station close to Bay St. Louis, just off I-10 and thought it might be good. Had a draft pour a few days later in Pensacola at Hopjack’s. I am NOT a fan of brown ales, but I’ll be damned if this isn’t amazing. I want to know how they got all that roast pecan into the aroma. Nice, sweetish, and carmelly with a slight pecan aftertaste. Leaves a nice film on the roof of your mouth. Very nice. I’d love to try other beers by this brewery. ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 3, 2009
