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.”

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!

Bottle at Irish Whiskey DC. Dark black with medium toasty head. Nose is caramel, malts, slightly sour. Taste is lots of strong chocolate up front, caramel and malts and some coffee. Bitter and vanilla in the finish. Ejoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 Solid porter. 12oz pour from bottle, unfiltered. Malty on the nose, bitter hop in the front of the taste. Thinner on the palate as most porters are, full of malt without being sweet.

12oz bottle into English pint glass, dark brown color with tan head. Aroma is hoppy for a porter (earthy citrus hops), roasted malt, chocolate milk and some coffee. Taste wasn’t as sweet as expected, bitter hops balancing nicely with the chocolate and roasted malt. Light body, low carbonation and lingering bitterness. Tastes like when porter meets IPA, and I like it. Refreshing and interesting.
