Clown Shoes Beer Genghis Pecan Pecan Pie Porter
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Clown Shoes Beer Genghis Pecan Pecan Pie Porter. I picked this bottle up at Caps & Taps in Dublin. As I’ve said many times before, please visit local shops and support them. The guys at Caps & Taps (here) are really cool and if you go in there tell ‘em you heard about them here.
From the Clown Shoes Beer website: “Our new Pecan Pie Porter no longer uses extract, but rather brown sugar and pecans roasted by friends at The Gallows in Boston. Buddy Hadry, a rep at Bella Vista in PA, gave me the name for this beer, the second Pecan beer now that he has named. Thank you, Buddy!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours dark brown, nearly black with a large mocha colored head and great lacing.
Aroma: Brown sugar, roasted malts, chocolate, roasted pecans and vanilla.
Taste: Chocolate, brown sugar, roasted pecans, molasses, roasted malts and light coffee flavor.
Overall: Creamy, smooth and not overly sweet, Clown Shoes Beer Genghis Pecan Pecan Pie Porter is tasty. This 7% ABV Clown Shoes offering is a nice Porter worth trying.
