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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2013
75cl bottle: pours a mostly opaque black with dark ruby mahogany edges and a large creamy beige froth of head that leaves fine lacing behind as it subsides. Has a sweet dark caramel and molasses nose with hints of smoke and chocolate. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with sweet dark caramel and chocolate malts, notes of plums and a subtle roastiness and mild noble hop bitterness before a drier smooth semi-sweet finish. Very true to style, complex and certainly drinkable.

"Solid brew as are most of this crooked line. Barrel faint at first especially in the nose but it opens up well. Only fault is a little prickliness and slight overcarbonation. Dark fruits, roasted malt and barrel are well balanced and tasty. Nothing is really quite a 9, but there are a couple 8.5’s so there ya go."

Plovmand (6913) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours jet black with a creamy dense beige head. The aroma is bourbon, vanilla, oranges, chocolate and hard roasted malt. The flavor is hard roasted, ripe fruit, licorice, bourbon, vanilla and chocolate. Nice one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle from Dutch’s. 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.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2014
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.)

Ernest (6662) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black. Aroma is moderately malty (horse feed, wort, cereal, caramel, chocolate syrup), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean, slightly husky. Medium to full body, creamy/syrupy texture, soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Really hard to get past the terrible malt...very raw/worty/vegetal. There are some nice elements behind that struggling for your attention, but they can’t compete. Almost drinkable in the mouth, but again the aftertaste reminds you of the dirty/clunky malt. A nice idea, but poorly executed.

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.

750 ml bottle to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks douglas88). Looks good; black with foamy beige head. Smells of semi-sweet malt and booze with some bitterness. Tastes like it smells, only better, with notes of chocolate. Good on the palate. Good stuff!

@ Strong Ale Fest 2013. Clear black color with lasting tan head. Roasty, vanilla, chocolate aromas. Medium body with average co2. Weak chocolate, boozy vanilla bourbon, dark fruit flavors

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
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.....
