Troegs Dead Reckoning Porter
When I picked up a six-pack of the most recent Troegs Scratch beer, I also picked up a six-pack of Dead Reckoning Porter. The beer is black in color and has a decent head on the pour. There is a sweet hoppy aroma that results from the pour. The beer tastes of chocolate and roasted malts with a slight caramel undertone. There are hops are present but they are not overpowering. The alcohol content is 5.8% ABV. I think that the Dead Reckoning is an excellent porter and is one of my favorites. It is easy to drink, but multi-dimensional due to the hop content.
