3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 12oz Bottle. The pour non-transparent jet black with a large (2-3 finger) medium brown frothy head that diminished rapidly, leaving just a little residue floating on top which allowed for a some fair streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a mild burnt chocolate malt and a leathery yeast with hints of dark chocolate, molasses and a dark roasted coffee.
The taste I thought was a bit on the light side for an Imperial Stout at first, and had a mildly sweet roasty mocha coffee note which lingered throughout. But then matured into a bitter-sweet dark malted coffee flavor with a big note of dark chocolate and a mild alcohol finish. The flavor lasted a little longer than average in duration following the swallow, with a mildly bitter coffee roastiness left behind.
Mouthfeel was somewhat dry in texture and quite full in body with the carbonation being rather flat.
Overall this was a very tasty Imperial Stout that did a great job of concealing the high ABV, while allowing a smooth roastiness to settle in for the long hall, which in turn created a superb drinkability... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

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.

Pours an opaque dark brown with khaki colored head. Roasted malt, cocoa, and just a hint of coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with a lot of roasted character and some molasses.

On. Tap pours a black brown color with a foamy brown head. Notes of fudge, booze, smoke, and burnt cookie crust. Thin for an impy.

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 thatís not too thick. Fairly smooth with very light carbonation. Tastes of dark molasses, licorice, and roasted malts. Flavors are not very prominent and donít 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 itís 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.
