The Troegs Dead Reckoning Porter!

troegs dead reckoning The Troegs Dead Reckoning Porter!“It’s not revenge, it’s a reckoning.”  –Doc Holliday

By James Parker

The Troegs Dead Reckoning Porter is a seasonal offering that might not be tapped anywhere right now and could possibly end its’ run at the local bottle shop.  However, if you do see Dead reckoning, and are a fan of the Baltic style of porters, it’s more than worth your money and time.  Out of the bottle, Dead Reckoning’s body is a true shade of dark brown, and it supports a foamy, khaki-colored head.  You can easily detect the chocolate in the nose, and if you linger a little bit, one not only gets a slight alcohol presence, but also a wonderful roasted aroma.  It’s relatively straightforward upon first taste, but it will leave an impression as your mouth warms up to it.  The chocolate and roast hints in the nose combine to make Dead Reckoning to be bitterer than expected, and it has an excellent mouthfeel — frothy and cold on the back of your throat.  If you’ve ever wanted to try a roasted milkshake (and you probably have), this is your chance.
