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.

drjay44 (2736) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2013
750 corked and caged bottle. Bottled on11/21/12. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, well retained light beige head, with some lacing, over a black (SRM 40) body.....nose is coffee, lighter chocolate, cocoa, hints of Bourbon, slightest hints of vanilla.....taste is a slightly sweet brown sugar/molasses, with very light dried fruits including plum, raisin, light coffee, cocoa, light Bourbon, hints of vanilla, finishing with a mild bitterness....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, lightly astringent, alcohol hidden, carbonation low. This is a nicely balanced beer, and in addition, the Bourbon, has been used with a relatively light hand. adding complexity without dominance. It is a bit on the dry side for a Baltic, and the dried fruit character of the malt backbone is light. The dominant aromas and flavors are of the more heavily roasted malts. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Big brown head. Opaque black body goes deep dark red at edge. Deep chocolatey earthy aroma with roasty toffee notes. Sweetish faintly acidic taste of earthy chocolate with funky pine needle notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, slightly flat, mealy mouthfeel. Sweetish earthy mineraly dark chocolate aftertaste with burnt cocos notes. Nice, drinkable, and full of flavour. Complex. (0.75l bottle from wine monopoly Vika, Oslo.)

_angst_ (3051) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours very dark brown with a big frothy brownish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of lacing and trace on the glass. Smell is slightly malty with roasted malts, toasted cereal, dark bread, vanilla fudge, charred wood, sweet liquorice candy, coffee, cocoa powder and soil. Taste is slightly sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood, liquorice, coffee, chocolate, soil, brown sugar and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, round, astringent and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, burnt cereal, burnt caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood, coffee, chocolate, soil and alcohol. Tasty and surprisingly easy to drink.

abergdahl (64) - SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2014
Smells like a good porter should, some roasted notes, some hops..nice. It pours like it should as well, dark, black with a nice thick top that stays for quite a while.. The taste is full, again very much roast notes, a goo bitterness, not much alcohol, just a hint, a nice bloom with some hoppiness and chocolate , like it. Very full beer with a soft feel and long aftertaste.. Overall a good Porter!

Not quite a Baltic, very significant chocolate and significant roast. Some hop in finish. A tad thin but very good drinkability.

weihenweizen (1874) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle corked and capped, bottled on November 27, 2012, poured into a snifter. Black with small dark brown highlight and small light brown head. Aroma is coffee, medium body, light carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is chocolate, ash, oak, smoke, some vanilla, some herbal hops, and some coffee. Complex, but not that good, may have been too old for me, not much bourbon, and too much ash.

Patrickctenchi (4090) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle: Black, with a large, foamy, dark tan head. Chocolate wine...bourbon aroma. Smoky, barrel and chocolate taste. Creamy, thick chocolate malt...roasted fudge and a trace of bourbon. Very rich...almost too sweet, but the smoke reins it back in. Excellent.
