Drank from a 12 fl.oz. bottle purchased at Downtown Wine & Spirits, Somerville, MA
Bottled 081712
Served in a pint glass

Fantastic appearance. A super tight, creamy and bubbly crown of beige foam topped the dark mahogany liquid. The head had fantastic lasting power. As it receded, thick chunks of sticky lacing coated the glass.

There was unexpected hoppiness to the nose. Had I not known, I would have guessed this to be a American black ale. A distinctly dry and powdery yeastiness was following closely by some intense, piney and grapefruit zest-like hops. Touch of roasty, smoky malts. As the beer warmed, the hops died down and the dry yeasty quality took over.

The flavor profile was more of the same. Some roasted malt and chicory notes clung for dear life as they were enveloped by a cornucopia of intensely dry and bitter hops. Like the nose, West Coast-style hops dominated. Lots of grapefruit peel and piney, resiny notes. The dry, citrusy bitterness lingered on my palate for what seemed like an eternity.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Creamy, slick and smooth on the palate. The liquid contained a fine, moderate effervescence.

Dead Reckoning Porter is far from being a bad beer, but it definitely was not what I expected. Call me a traditionalist, but I still like my porters to taste like porters and my IPAs to taste like IPAs.
