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.”

Transfer from BA review on 5-18-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a deep-deep brown almost pitch black color with a two finger tan head. The head has great retention. It eventually fades to give a nice level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a sweeter chocolate aroma. This is mixed with lighter hints of caramel and coffee. Taste – The taste starts out a bit on the sweeter-maltier side. A caramel brown bread flavor meets the tongue. The roasty bready and caramel flavors persist to the middle of the taste where they are met with a cocoa and coffee flavor. The caramel then begins to fade. This ends up leaving a pleasant cocoa-coffee flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body is on the medium side for both creaminess and carbonation. The body could use a bit more thickness, but the carbonation is fitting. Overall – The transitions from sweeter to more roasty are nice in this brew. While not the greatest body it is easy to drink and makes for a good session porter if that is what you are feeling.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is piney with some chocolate notes in it. The flavor has a mix of pine, roasted malt and chocolate. Very hoppy for a porter. Medium bitterness. Medium carbonation and thick mouthfeel.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass every time. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipates within about a minute and leaves a decent amount of foamy lacing. The smell was roasty and bitter coffee pervading through some light caramel, chocolate and oatmeal. The taste took those flavors and combined it wonderfully. There was a nice bitter coffee aftertaste that ended up leaving a dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body with a quality that wanted to show a decent sessionability but kinda made me sip it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as it was slightly smooth and creamy. Overall, I say this was a good American Porter well worthy of having again.

an, another example of american-izing a beer by loading it up with a ton more hops than is necessary for the style.

Nice balance and good coca finish. Not as hoppy up front as I expected. Drinkable yet somewhat busy with flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
