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.

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 didnít get much bourbon, if any out of it.

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.

JBPortland (658) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 19, 2013
750ml bottle pours dark deep brown with a huge 3 finger foamy brown head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, some oak. Taste is roasty dark cocoa and coffee, some faint woody barrel in there. Finish is a slightly fruity, rich coffee, with hints of smoke. Solid.

Pours near black. Aroma of dark fruit, smoke, and roasted malts. Taste is the same with some chocolate cream, sugar, and vanilla. Very nice.

Bottle. Pours a pitch black with a huge mocha head. Aroma is wood and dark booze. Taste is burnt chocolate with lots of smoothing vanilla. Lots of residual sweetness.

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

Dark fruit, bourbon, toasted/caramel aroma. Dark raisin-y, sweet/caramel malt flavor; A little roasted malt, and slight smokiness. Subtle oak and vanilla. Bourbon flavor is prominent--but not too much.

michaelinwa (583) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2013
On tap at Beer Junction Barrel-Aged Beer Week. Black pour, low head, very light aroma. Flavor is light malt, with subtle roasted and chocolate notes, but itís very mild. I really prefer something more substantial in a barrel-aged porter. Not one I would need to try again.

Darwenus (534) - Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2013
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.
