COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complex and drinkable, Sea Legs delivers flavors of roasted malt and chocolate. Sea Legs was aged in Bourbon Barrels for nearly 12 months adding toasted vanilla and bourbon notes to the flavor profile. This Medium-bodied Baltic Porter has a complex malt profile and mild hop bitterness. With a hidden ABV of 8%, Sea Legs is a siren of a beer.

750 ml bottle from Dutchís. Pours a dark brown to black color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have soy, an almost briny note, roasted malt, ash, powdery chocolate, dark fruit and only a mild kick from thebbarrel. I almost forgot that it was barrel aged. Good, but not great.

Bottle:   Black, moderate to large foamy dark beige head, nice lacing.   Sweet soy on the nose.   On the tongue its a soft sweet roastiness, slightly dry and chalky, with a sweet soy like background.   Little bitterness, but also not much dark pitted fruit like I normally associate with the style.   Body and mouthfeel are smooth albeit moderate.   Quick finish, slightly ashy, roasty, but not all that sweet any more.   This one is not as thick, sweet, or fruity as others.   If I were to have this blind I would be confused as to what it was.   Tiz okay, but not as good as I was hoping.   Ashy finish, soft roasted malts, and very soft cocoa or bakers chocolate.   Meh... says its aged on Bourbon, I get ZERO of that.   ZZZZZzzzzz.....

RABinCO (1255) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2013
November 2012 bottle. Pours deep, nearly black brown, slight tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is surprisingly grainy, but that doesnít carry over to the taste. The taste is very smooth chocolate, light espresso, some cereal, oak, vanilla, bourbon. Light hoppiness. Dry and crisp finish, which is excellent. Real good and easy drinking.

750ml c&c bottle from Canalís EHT. Poured a deep black body with an average sized beige foamy head. Aroma is okay, sort of dusty, notes of vanilla beans, dry chocolate powder, some chocolate swyrup, wet dark toast, burnt malts, wood and some bourbon. Palate is okay, foamy body with a medium mouthfeel. Flavor of dry chocolate, light vanilla, some wood, hint of bourbon, dry dark toast. Overall meh, expected more from Crooked Line series.

Beerenberger (1425) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2013 Vanilla and bourbon greet the nose, with chocolate and fruit notes . Pours a healthy black with a mostly diminishing khaki head and clinging lacing. The taste is more roasted than sweet. Roasted malts flavors, vanilla, and bourbon with hints of nuts and cherries. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, enjoyable - not as sweet as some other Baltic porters that Iíve tried. While there was a pleasurable round mouthfeel, I would have liked to have had fuller body also.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2013
750ml from Samís, Durham. Deep discount, baby! Dark brown, thick like a liquefied Tootsie Roll. Medium silky head, modest carbonation. Nose is sharp, with booze and molasses complementing base chocolate notes. Is this even lagered? Not sure, but itís a pretty tasty imperial porter tilted towards the bitter end of the spectrum but with slight milk chocolate, caramel, and dark fruit.

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a darker brown to black with a grayish head of foam. Decent retention. Aroma is a musky, coffee, earthy sweetness. A little ashy. Taste is more of the same. Paired nicely with a cigar that was a little past its prime.

Wordsworth (131) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle poured into snifter. Pours almost black with a foamy finger head that lingers, leaving spotty lacing down the glass. Beer is a tad too cold for proper smell test but I detect chocolate, malt, and faint vanilla. Flavor is vanilla and some chocolate up front, and rolls into a notable bourbon finish and some hoppy bitterness on the tail. A complex palate that is well balanced. Nice beer.
