Widmer Brothers SXNW

Lately I’ve been trying out beers flavored with pecans to see what that might be like. This one jumped out at me as being flavored not only with pecans but also cocoa nibs, cinnamon and green chiles. I wasn’t sure how the green chiles would fit in. As it turned out, I really didn’t taste the green chiles. This beer was brewed as an American Strong Ale as a base and the flavors added in. It poured a dark brown with a small off white head The chocolate from the cocoa nibs was pronounced. I’m guessing they also used a chocolate malt in the wort. The pecans were also noticeable and gave the beer a nice smooth flavor and a creamy texture. The cinnamon was also noticeable, but not overpowering. I would give this one 4 out of 5 proper pints.
