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 from Market of Choice. Pours like dark root beer with a fine, warm-brown head with a nice shimmer at the edges (Marc W., composite specialist for hydro electrical applications, described it as "purply-red"). Aroma is sweet caramel, light earthy burnt toast, light vanilla. Body is medium with a light frothiness. Flavor is not as sweet as the aroma would suggest; vanilla notes are stronger than anticipated resulting in the perception of sweeter malt. In actuality, the malt is rather dry, considerable burnt notes with some coffee. Some distinct woody light smokiness is apparent from the barrels, less intense compared with some 100% bourbon-barrel-aged brews (check out the Labyrinth in this line). Tasty, could use a bit more malt sweetness for optimization.

Not too much barrel. For sure a solid beer. Again maybe not the style most suitable for barrel aging.

Great porter. The bourbon from the barrel aging comes through nice and smooth. A bit of vanilla touch with slight hop to it. Yum!

Bottle from Halftime Beverage, Cola pour, tan/brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, and nice light bourbon backing. Taste is roasted malt up front, smooth bourbon finish, best Baltic I have had.

ericdevin (763) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours very dark, opaque, slight tan head. Rich, roasty aroma, slightly woody smokiness. Roastiness big in finish, which is very smooth, chocolate and coffee. Really easy drinking, but I didn’t get much bourbon, if any out of it.

BroSpud (1690) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Poured from draft into a tall Uinta glass at Mead Hall. Deep dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Full of all kinds of delicious flavors, most noticable is the chocolate and bourbon notes but there are others in there as well. Licorice. Smoke. Dark fruits. This stuff is excellent.

Ratman197 (9794) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2013
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting creamy brown head. Aromas of graininess, bakers cocoa, oak, light prune and light anise. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of graininess, earthiness, cocoa and light oak with a smooth lingering woody cocoa finish.

Tap: black pour with large, creamy tan head. Aroma has sour milk and cherry tartness on the nose with some coffee roast, brown sugar, and charred wood with a touch of bourbon. Flavor has a creamy sweet-tartness with cherry, caramel, and barnyard funk, running into a bit of bourbon and wood. Startlingly tart at first, the flavor increases as it warms and I found it easy to drink.

Outstanding!! Nice run. Hope they continue this one. Pours a beautiful dark molasses color, gorgeous tan creamy head. Rich espresso, dark chocolate, and malty flavor. One of the best ever -- and great 750ml bottle with champagne style cork and cage. Very cool. Sea Legs from Utah. Too funny.
