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.

Draft. Light chocolate malt aroma. Brown-black with small head. Very sweet chocolate syrup and malt flavor. Okay but a bit cloying.

Thin, dark body, average head. The aroma is sweet and smokey. The bourbon quality is present as a rich vanilla, and the smokey malt qualities had a nutty, bready character that just worked perfectly with the oak. Iíd suggest this as a great starter for anyone whoís interested in bourbon barrel aged beers, itís very smooth and very sweet, but not at all subtle. Of the beers I tried that were _new_ to me, this is the one Iíll most certainly add to my own regular rotation if I can find it.

Bottle pours with a deep mahogany body that supports a mocha looking head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, burnt malts, some earthy maltiness and faint dark fruity esters off in the background. The taste is rich inviting goodness coming from the likes of dark roasted malts to burnt malts and then moving into chocolate and earthy malt goodness. This is just rich and deep and fudge brownie yum. I get faint sweet dark fruity esters echoing away far off in the distance. Yummers!

Very very good beer. Pours dark, slight head, mild carbonation. It has a really good roasty, smooth body with an easy finish. Not much hop at all, and itís not needed. I would also note that the barrel aging hasnít overwhelmed the beer. A very good sipper.

after4ever (6127) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2013
750, corked and baled. Starting to think this whole series will be consistently great to amazing. Pours black with a sudsy dark tan head and plenty of webby lace. Big sweet chocolate and vanilla nose. Creamy medium body with very soft carb, goes a little watery in spots actually. Chocolate, vanilla, light bourbon, very soft woody notes in the background. Really a nice BP.

obguthr (3833) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Charred oak, coffee, and prune nose, with an emphasis on the latter. Black, thin tan head. Prune and charred oak flavor, maybe some fudge. Medium bodied, smooth, and drinkable.Alcohol only noticeable on the back end and not excessive. No bourbon detected, which is a plus for me. Fairly simple, but solid.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick and foamy tan head. Nose is chocolate, plum, molasses and oak. Rich and creamy with a sharp tang. Taste is milk chocolate, black walnut, caramel, earth, wood and faint bourbon. Satisfying, easy drinker.

A really solid Baltic porter. Not a big wow factor and I didnít get the bourbon or vanilla notes at all but tasted quite good. Poured a jet black with a bit of a roasted aroma to it. Very smooth on the palate

This beer has a very rich dark brown color. A mild aroma hides the strong complexity of this beer. It has a roasted malt flavor which helps to temper the hoppy bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a dark brown with an off white head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, floral, wood, and a trace of bourbon. Tastes of wood, vanilla, chocolate, some earth, light bourbon, and some dark fruits.
