Review: Tröegs Dead Reckoning Porter

Tröegs Dead Reckoning Porter
5.4% ABV
Troegs Brewing Co., Hershey, PA
12 oz bottle
Served in Dogfish Head Signature Glass 
Date on bottle: Bottled on 7/31/12
Reviewed on 11/18/12

This porter pours a medium dark brown color with a good beige head.  Moderate carbonation.  Decent lacing.

Smell consists of chocolate, mild coffee, malt, slight licorice, slight hops.

Taste has chocolate, definite hops, malt, coffee, slight chili note, slight licorice.

Mouthfeel is smooth with some earthiness from the hops.  Nice balance of flavors, good mix of dryness and bitterness.

Overall, this is a tasty twist on a porter.  Chocolatey classic porter mixed with good bitter hoppiness of an IPA.  Fairly smooth with a nice profile of flavors.  Something good for both fans of porters and IPAs.

My score: 91
