COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The story goes like this...My great grandfather needed a paddle to stir the beer but was without, so he made due with his own peg leg to which we honor his "ingenuity". A robust ale with roasted coffee and chocolate accents.A creamy finish that would make Sir Guinness proud. When in doubt drink two or three stouts and toast my grandfather~just watch for splinters!!!

On tap at BottleMixx (Raleigh). Pours dark with tan head. Mild (weak ?) aroma. Thin mouthfeel for a stout. Coffee dominates taste, with a few other misc flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Out of the ubiquitous plastic cup at the Ren Faire. Very rich, black bodied with a sizeable head. Strong coffee aroma. Sweet, roasted malt taste. Oily and chocolately. Dry, roasty finish. Great for an October day surrounded by pirates.

Dificílima de ser encontrada: apenas na costa oeste americana. Coloração amadeirada, sabor forte e marcante, duradoura.

I love the pirate theme of Swashbuckler, and very pleased that a brewery, as was the case in medieval times, could be found in the shire. Swashbuckler beers can be found pouring at three different locations on the faire grounds, the most popular being the brewery pour house, and O’Malley’s Pour House. The only caveat about Swashbuckler’s beer is the fact that is a bit on the pricey side, selling for $4.75 a 16 oz plastic cup. The plastic cup is a tad annoying, but the most logical and understandable drinking vessel, as you can roam freely though the faire with your beer in one hand and a turkey leg in the other. I tasted the full range of Swashbuckler beers, and found them to range from well done to outstanding. The Walk the Plank Pale ale was a delicious, very hoppy beer, a real stand out, but it was their Old Peg Leg Stout that impressed me the most. This is a rich, delicious, hearty stout, with plenty of chocolate, roast, and coffee notes, but it also has a very assertive hop character. Coming in at 5% abv, it is the type of beer you could enjoy a few of, but at 58 IBU, it has a bit more hop aroma and bite than most examples of the style, and makes for one delicious beer. Old Peg Leg Stout pours to a deep ebony color with a thick and creamy tan head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is just jam packed with character. Lots of big roasty aromas and chocolate aromas marry with big citrus and piney hop aroma. The palate is rich, creamy, and full on the tongue, with plenty of sweet malt, dark chocolate, coffee, mild roast, and hints of black currant. Old Peg Leg Stout finishes with more big creamy chocolaty flavors, more mildly roasty flavors, and then ends with a vibrant punch of citric/piney hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Wow. A very impressive, big, rich, creamy and delicious stout just bursting with big aromas and flavors.

On tap: PA Ren Faire: Thin bodied for a stout. Some roasted notes but I found the beer to be rather oily. I’d rather walk the plank.

Draft at PA Ren. Fair. AAARRR, mateys! First of all, let’s get over the plastic cup issue. This is a great stout, and it would be great served out of a glass mug, a plastic cup, or dripping out of Oprah Winfrey’s skin folds. Very dark blackish color, with medium dark tan head. The aroma is of strong roasty malts, with a big chocoff presence. Excellent flavor, with big chocoff in the taste and finish. Dense palate, and very complex and well balanced. A top notch stout. Ye shall drink this one or I’ll be forced to draw and quarter your limey ass, ye lily livered cretin!

On tap at the PA Renaissance Faire. Poured a very dark brown/black with a small tan head that went away and kind of laced the plastic cup it was served in. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee and some bitterness. A bit thin. This was the only beer I tried out, would have tried out more but it was kind of hot and we were walking around a lot. Plus the plastic serving cup didn’t make the beer too appealing.

On tap at the PA Renaissance Faire. Served in a platic cup. Poured a dark black with a small sized tan head. Aromas of chocolates and roasted malts. Tastes of chocolates, roasted malts and light coffee. Their was a slight sourness to the taste that really turned me off on this one. Oily body.

This is a good Stout. Slightly bitter coffee, earthy, and chocolate flavors. Finishes clean, creamy, and dry.

Poured black with thin head...smelled very roasty and chocolate...taste was much more mild than I expected...coffee, chocolate, and roasty-ness were all quite mild...finish was sweet and chocolate...lasted a little longer than I would’ve liked, but a good brew none the less...I drank this a few days ago and have already tossed the bottle, but I think it said this was an impy...
