Beer Wednesday – Heavy Seas Peg Leg

Happy Beer Wednesday!

This week, I’m very happy to be reviewing Baltimore’s own Heavy Seas Peg Leg porter.

I’ll be reviewing a handful of Heavy Seas’ beers over the next few weeks, and I’m really pleased to start with Peg Leg.

This beer has a rich, coffee start, with a great deep dark color. The head is thick and held a bottle cap for as long as I could wait before drinking it.

The nose showed the coffee with a hint of chocolate, like pretty much all porters should, and the toasted malt was present, but mellowed as the beer warmed. The hops were there, but very mellow, very smooth.

I really like this vegan beer, even if it isn’t as good as some others, like The Poet Oatmeal Stout. That having been said, this is a teriffic example of the style, and I’m quite happy to have this brewery local.

Peg Leg earns a 4/6 on my six-pack scale, but if you see it, absolutely grab a hold and let me know what you think. I doubt you’ll be disappointed.
