COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.”

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Soft toasty chocolate aroma, subtle but important hop presence. Brown ale type brown color. Great chocolate and coffee flavor, surprisingly bitter and in a great fashion. Sharp crisp body. Like those black IPA’s, only without the dirty burnt elements.

Dark brown with small brown head. Aroma toasty malt and chocolate. Medium-light body. Flavor up front is lightly sweet roasted malt and chocolate but then some pretty strong grassy and floral hop flavors. Quite bitter and hoppy for a porter.

Pours the deep chestnut brown of a porter with a dense off white head. Aroma is clean, hints of malt, chocolate. Taste is smooth chocolate into coffee transition with bitterness and coffee ground aftertaste. Classic porter.

12oz into a pint. Smooth pour, head is fullfilling and about 2cm with marshmellow thickness. Color is midnight black. Taste is earthy malty, no giant hop presence, and the roasted malt charateristic shines very nicely. A nice fall beer here, with seasonal qualities that shuffle in the autumn goodness. Nothing too over the top in quality, but a solid brew. Abv is medioaker at 5.8, if this was bumped up some I think that would lend a hand to a more superior enjoyment.

Bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a medium tan head that dissipates leaving nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, citrus, pine. Flavor is very similar, roasty but quite hoppy as well, with black IPA like balance between the two. Light sweet, medium bitter. Medium plus body, with a very creamy mouthfeel. This is a nice beer, but it could just as easily be classified as a black ipa.

Chaneybr (52) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Reviewed 9-13-10. This is the fall seasonal by Troegs and it took the place of the Oatmeal Stout a while back. Ap: Poured fairly thick and dark, with a 1/2 inch head, and carbonation on the plus side. A frothy cream stayed on the beer throughout the entire session. Ar: Roastiness, with bitter chocolate, and a hint of citrus. T: Well balanced. Starts pretty bitter, but does not overwhelm. The citrus just gives you a little bite at the end. P: Foamy lacing on the glass. The fact that this brew is unfiltered gives it kind of a slimy texture that I’m actually fond of. O: I would say that this is fairly drinkable, but if I were to drink about 2 - 2.5 bottles of this stuff, the bitterness would keep my sobriety in check. Really good beer nonetheless!
