Dead Reckoning is unfiltered and weighs in at 5.8% abv and 53 IBU’s. It features Pilsner, Caramel, Chocolate and Roasted malts along with Chinook and Vanguard hops. “The outstanding taste and flavor of Dead Reckoning originates in the chocolate and roasted malts,” says John Trogner. “There is a nice hoppiness in the front of the beer, but the rich, smooth mouth feel is what really stands out.”

Pitch black, medium bodied, refreshing and balanced porter. Some coffee, roasted malts, not too sweet with a dry finish. A worthwhile brew.

Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Dark, ruddy brown with a decent, tan head. Easy drinking, with some sweet mlats, dark fruits and touch of citrus, before a dryish finish. Enjoyable.

A pretty good porter. Has a nice aroma full of coffee and roasty. Taste is a little watery and mild for me but very drinkable.

Color is of a dark brown. Fairly translucent. Looks more like a brown ale. Smells fairly sweet for a porter too. However, plenty of choclate and roasted flavors. Drinks very light and etoh is completly unnoticable. Finishes great. Really surprised how well this one turned out.

Aroma has a nice citrusy/roasty balance but the taste is just a bit off to me, kind of acidic tasting up front and with a really, i dunno, astringent? finish. It’s not a bad beer, just not feeling it.

On tap at the abbey. Pours dark with a great brown foamy head. Taste is roasty and hoppy, finishes sweet and dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask @ Rustico. Great heavy pour with very nice roasty flavors with a touch of chocolate. Cask makes it very milky and smooth.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Smells hoppy. A very flavorful pilsner. I love it. It’s really is a perfect beer to start the fall with. It reminds you of summer but give you a taste of the fall. Then there are temping hints that bring you to winter chocolatety delight. Well balanced beer. I highly recommend.

A pretty good porter, not bitter, but with a toasty coffee taste (some folks mention chocolate but I do not taste it).
