|Heavy Seas Peg Leg
This version of an Imperial Stout may be a tad light for some
but generally fills the bill. First sip brings a full, creamy malt
and alcoholic taste. This is followed by clear tones of bitter
coffee and caramel. As the brew warms chocolate appears
adding a gentle sweetness with molasses overtones.
Overall Rating - good
DAB boasts of a lightly sweet and smooth malty character.
With gentle hints of nuts and biscuits a malty roasted flaovr
comes to the fore in mid-taste. The finish brings grassy
sweetness in toasty, herbal mix. This is a German dark beer
long admired for good reason.
Overall Rating - Very Good
|Samuel Adams Octoberfest
Reportedly the largest selling
Oktoberfest beer in the US this
amber colored brew has an assertive
nuttty and malty taste that quickly
smooths out into a gentle sweetness.
Hops remain in the background and
never quite balance the malt's
domination. Light hints of chocolate
appear at the finish. Well made and
a standard by which to judge others.
Overall rating - Very Good
