Clipper City Heavy Seas Peg Leg
The second beer that I tried from the Clipper City Heavy Seas sampler pack was the Peg Leg. The beer is dark brown in color with a light tan head. The aroma consists of roasted malts and dark chocolate. The taste is mostly dark chocolate with hints of roasted malts and coffee. From the aroma, I would have thought that the roasted malts would have been the front runner for taste, but it was the dark chocolate that came out as the winner. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. I really like the Peg Leg and like the dry dark chocolate finish.
