16oz can. Pretty deep brown body. Steady beige head. Certainly nutty, but not in a natural way..in an oily extract or just strong candy pecan way. So I guess it is good, like flavored soda is good, it has unique flavors. Not really a solid beer, mostly because it really hides a thin boring body behind those artificial tones. Artificial burnt plastic aroma.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass. Way too much carbonation as the head of foam explodes upward levaing only a literal half a glass of beer. Truly a bad omen before the tasting. Candied pecans up front with a sharp malt grain aroma almost like a syrupy low grade canadian whiskey. The taste is not much better being a syrupy malty caramel with pecan influence. The finsih is slightly metallic and mineral. Just not worth a second try.

tightslice (1115) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Location: Can from Willow’s Market in Menlo Park, CA
Aroma: Artificial pecan syrup, kid’s pecan cereal (if that were a thing)
Taste: Sweet with a lot of artificial vanilla and fake pecan flavor
Overall: Overwhelmingly artificial and sweet. Drain pour.

Beachmaster (475) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Tall boy into a pint glass. Pours a medium brown with a moderate khaki head. Nose is pralines, and the taste follows. Nice balance between the pecan pie sweetness and the bitterness on the finish. Pretty decent novelty beer.

KUEric (949) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2016
The aroma is too candied pecans. Its like a desert smell. The look is nice, deep, dark reddish brown with a small head. The flavor is a bit much on the pecan, a bit much on the mixed bitter-flatness. Just not my cup of beer.

Marheb (5285) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 7, 2016
(En fût à Square One Pizza Cafe): Des effluves puissantes de pecan et de céréales grillées qui se transposent assez bien en saveurs. Le corps est mince et aérien, hautement engouffrable.

slowrunner77 (10763) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2016 Decent nutty brown ale - more pecan and caramel than dark roast. Medium bodied, finishing bittersweet. A little heavy handed on the adjuncts. Pleasant in small samples. Didn’t want a pint, though. Can.

Huhzubendah (3625) - Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2016
Can from Whole Foods in Little Rock, Arkansas. Clear, copper body. A ton of effervescence. White bubbly collar. Breads, malls, nuts in the aroma. Lots of pecan character. Mildly sweet with a light, but not thin, body. Pecan character is stronger in the flavor than in the aroma. Over for me in as advertised. Fun.

Block (2375) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2016
A nice brown ale. A little nutty, some caramel. Not too roasted. It had a heavier body, good carbonation, a filling beer.

Draft - Caramel and nutty notes. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Creamy caramel and nutty sweet notes. Meh.
