Troegs Dead Reckoning Porter Columbus Dry Hopped
I stopped in to Al's of Hampden to order a glass of Troegs Dead Reckoning (Columbus Dry Hopped) on hand pump. The beer pours a black color with a frothy off-white head. The aroma is big on pine hops, which are not present in the regularly produced Dead Reckoning, with a light chocolate background. The taste is smooth and silky with a good hop foreground, some milk chocolate, and a dry toasted finish. The alcohol content is 5.4%. I thought that the dry hopping of the Dead Reckoning really transitioned this beer, and made it a great beer for both porter and hop lovers alike.
