From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
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 Dark

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
Having sampled well over 2,750 different beers in my
capacity as a fully certified taster I can promise
honest, thoughtful, and careful evaluations.  However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.  
Consider this column an informative resource only.  
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
keep drinking!

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
