KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 17, 2011
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

Aroma is bready, dark fruit, chocolate maybe, sweet. Appearance is dark brown, poured thin, light brown head. Taste is bad. Artificial licorice, dark fruit, roasted malt, sweet, raisins, awful. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, awful dark fruit aftertaste. Overall, bad. Bad.

downender (8039) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Jet black in colour, with a thin, beige, head. Coffee and dark chocolate notes, some caramel and dark berry sweetness, before a rich, toasty finish. Good.

bagalagalaga (160) - Indiana, USA - NOV 28, 2016
Smells like coffee and a little fruit or red wine, but man you take one sip and you are hit with a very unexpected and fairly unpleasant, medicinal taste. It was so weird it made me check the best by date, still 5 months out. Like a bad citrus fruit taste, or merlot cut with coffee? Other Heavy Seas are much better.

chucklemation (1470) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma is chocolate, roast, molasses, fruit, and something off. Flavor is a bit better, with chocolate and molasses dominant, but also roast, toffee, and some dark fruits. Highly carbonated. Just okay.

Johnstledger8 (915) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle. Pitch black with a fading bubbly brown head. Aroma is of roasted coffee, nuts, dark fruits, salty. Taste is of coffee, dark fruits, blackcurrant, nuts, caramel. Watery to oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

tfontana (806) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 4, 2016
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.

sloshgator (718) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2016
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.

TXBadger (2596) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2016
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.

ilovedarkbeer (2716) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2016
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.

jsporrer (803) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2016
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 thats not too thick. Fairly smooth with very light carbonation. Tastes of dark molasses, licorice, and roasted malts. Flavors are not very prominent and dont linger long enough. Smooth finish with a slight bitter aftertaste. OK, but I was expecting much more from a stout.
