3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a fresh cask. Dark black in color with a thin beige head. Aroma is roasted malt with dark chocolate notes. Flavor is roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Very faint sweetness. Thereís enough bitterness in the aftertaste to keep it interesting. Creamy mouthfeel. Iíve also had Peg Leg from the bottle. The cask version is richer in flavor and drinkability. My rating for the bottle version would be .5 lower.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Dark brown, light shining through at the edges. Barely any head; just a timid khaki skin & moderate ring. Aroma is unimpressive. Quiet stout backing of roasted & dark malts, light cocoa powder, a hint of sweetness... Not offensive, just lazy for the style. Taste is similar, though with a little more depth. Light roast, toasted malt, hint of coffee bean, bitter cocoa powder, very modest amount of residual brown sugar sweetness in the finish. Touch of ashy/lefty hops in the periphery, aftertaste with a kiss of coffee bean. Mouth feel is depressingly thin for a stout... Watery, almost. Medium bodied at best. Mild alcohol presence... Kind of just... Meh.

Reminds me of Old Dominion Oak Barrel Stout. The texture is very thin, but the test is great. Just the right amount of coffee, chocolate, hoppy taste. However, there is a slightly metallic aftertaste, which is why the beer didnít rank higher.

The Peg Leg is a good craft beer, but the body is lacking when it comes to an imperial.

Ok brew, def not a favorite of mine. Pour is a nice pitch black which is great for an imperial stout, but the flavor is weak and a bit lacking.

An okay imperial stout with a decent chocolate and coffee backbone, but really nothing that differentiates this from its competition.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, licorice, and dark fruit. Taste chocolate and caramel. The beer is thin for an imperial stout. Mildly sweet. Decent beer

12oz bottle, best by Jan 2013 whoops. Still hanging on to some sweetness from all the additives, hints of oxidation are creeping, some port notes almost here, wouldnt last much longer.

Bottle. Black with a small brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate. Light body with malt, fruit, coffee, and a medium sweetness. Pretty good but not amazing.
