3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Peg Leg poured beautifully, dark brown with ruby touches and a one finger, tan head. Not a lot was happening on the aroma end except for some subtle grassy notes. The flavor was pretty solid with coffee, toffee at the front and raisin at the back end. On the tongue this stout was silky and finished dry.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Appearance is dark brown-red (virtually opaque black) with quickly-fading light brown head and no lacing. Aroma is strong roasted malts, chocolate and dark fruit, caramel/toffee and hint of coffee. Taste is initial dark fruit, molasses and toffee--interrupted by slightly tangy, almost metallic flavor--then ends roasted mix of sweet and bitter. Palate is full bodied with smooth, thick texture, average-to-lively carbonation with dry, roasted finish. Overall, slightly off in the taste and a little too carbonated for the style.

3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Heavy Seas Peg Leg has a lot of competition which makes rating it tough. Definitely dark pour with a moderate tan head. Taste is malty as expected but nothing special. Peg Leg is just average in a sea of great Imperial stouts.
Consider it decent, but not a standout.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a pitch black with a thin tan head and plenty of lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and a semi sweet dark chocolate and caramel. Nice body that’s not too thick. Fairly smooth with very light carbonation. Tastes of dark molasses, licorice, and roasted malts. Flavors are not very prominent and don’t linger long enough. Smooth finish with a slight bitter aftertaste. OK, but I was expecting much more from a stout.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Perfect Pour. Dark brown body with thin head. Nose is burnt caramel. Taste is similar of burnt, roasted malts, caramel and sweet finish. I think it’s too roasty in my opinion. Pirate style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle with a BB date stamp of Oct. 2015 purchased earlier in the day at a World Market.
Pours a very dark red-brown looking black and opaque in the shaker pint glass. Decent head and some lacing.
Excellent mouthfeel despite indications of high ABV: very smooth and full.
The aroma too is quite nice. While I certainly like the flavor it is about average, for style.
Overall: a bit disappointing given the brewery and the favored style.
