I get this on tap at The Vault here in Jacksonville and at The J. Clyde in Birmingham. Poured into a pint tumbler.
A: Comes to me as a dark amber with a good deal of head at time of pour. The head recedes rather quickly but it still leaves a good deal of lacing.
S: Caramel, sweet malts, nuts, and pecans. Smells awesome.
T: Sweet honey-roasted pecans, malt, spices. Hops come through on the backend to balance out the sweetness. Very tasty.
M: The sweetness coats your mouth and it sticks around for a while. The beer still is crisp with a good balance of carbonation.
D: I can only drink a couple pints of this in a sitting because of it being a bit sweet. It is still quite tasty and refreshing. Damned good beer.

Received in a trade with Trill. Thanks!
Pours a clear, brown-ish amber color, with an off-white/tan one finger head. Actively carbonated-which lends to an ever present collar around the glass. Very inviting.
Aroma is sweet- brown sugar and caramel. Somewhat nutty-pleasant.
Taste is a bit caramel like at first, then very distinctly roasted pecan- this lasts strongly into the finish. Slight bitterness, and a touch dry. Nice hint of vanilla through out.
*edit* After a couple of these- it is the pecan finish to this that is most excellent!
Medium in body, mouthfeel is smooth, perhaps even a bit oily(?). Very pleasantly carbonated.
I really enjoyed this! I have been wanting this for a while now... so this is truly a treat. If this was more readily available, it would be a staple in my fridge... Nice low ABV, very session-able, excellent taste, easy drinker... there is nothing negative to be said about this beer!!

A smooth but vigorous pour into my 25cl tulip glass forms a fat, three-finger thick, lightly browned, tan colored head. The beer is a deep red, almost plum color that shows a brilliantly clear, copper tinged, full red color when held up to the light. The aroma has a soft fruitiness to it up front that mixes in with an earthy nutty and toasted malt character. A touch of astringent, roasty grain notes are found towards the end of the aroma. The more I dig around in the aroma the more nutty notes I start to smell. I do like how the soft, berry like, fruitiness mixes with the nut character and malt notes in the aroma.
Served a little cold, about 40°F / 4.5°C and tastes sweet up front. A prickly carbonation provides a touch of pepper and a definite fizz to the texture. The finish has a lingering, light-medium fullness to it that sticks just a touch to the palate. The nuttiness is at first noticed as an oral-nasal effect in the middle, but becomes more distinct and flavored as the beer slips down my throat. The nuttiness has a toasty, slightly astringent (almost tannic in some ways) note to it. A fruitiness is noticeable in the taste as well, with touches of currants as well as some raisin like flavors. This is highly quaffable and I could definitely see myself drinking a few pints of this.
An interesting beer that has just enough character to keep me interested. By far the best beer I have had from Mississippi (ok it is the only one too, but it is still good).
