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.”

Travlr (10985) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 20, 2012
I can’t believe I haven’t tried this beer til now, what’s wrong with me? Draft. Deep maroon color, thick beige head with good retention. Aroma of a Starbucks latte. Taste is burnt bitter espresso without the sugar, but with ground up bitter 70% cacao chocolate bars from Duty Free. Very bitter and dryish finish. A very drinkable, although non-traditional, unsweetened American porter suitable for diabetics.

bhensonb (10929) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Bottle from Oak Tree. Pours very dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma suggests meat! It’s full of dark malt, chocolate, and some citrusy hop. So how is that meat? My brain isn’t sharing that info with me. It’s full in body. It’s full of dark stuff, and coffee and chocolate. The roast/toast malt is smooth. The hops render it bitter. It’s full of flavor. Just excellent. Final eval: chocolate and dark stuff.
