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.

Ernest (6264) - 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, corked and caged. Cool label. Pours a pitch black color with a medium, very creamy brown head. An interesting nose of bourbon, roast, metallic notes, anise. The flavor is great: sweet vanilla, bourbon, roast, mellow fruit, a gentle creamy palate. Coca. A bit of cola in the finish and more vanilla. Very decadent. Awesome. The palate is amazing.

"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."

@ 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

Braudog (5838) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2013
As I inch up on 5000 with some stellar beers ... here’s another beauty. Dark, brooding. The aroma is pure sexuality .. rich with dark fruit, and even a little bit smoke. This is an amazing drink, as well. Full-bodied, a bit ashy, but rife with rich, roiling flavors of chocolate, raisin, rye, coffee, and any other rich, dark flavor you can think of. Brilliant.

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.

b3shine (5585) - Indiana, USA - JAN 12, 2013
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!

badlizard (5538) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle. Black with a thick creamy tan head. Sweet, earthy, and somewhat musty aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and cereal grain; the aroma becomes increasingly phenolic as it warms. Velvety medium bodied palate. Taste of sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, and cereal grain with some notes of plastic and a lightly bitter, slightly oaky finish. Disappointingly, I’m not getting any bourbon out of this one.

TheBeerGod (5287) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Black pour with a tall, dense, frothy brown head. Roasted malt, soft vanilla, hints of chocolate, burnt caramel, dark fruit notes and toasted grains in the nose. Taste is big chocolate, roasted malt, soft coffee, vanilla, caramel, toasted grains, soft booze and notes of dark fruit. Body is medium-full with a dense carbonation and mild stickiness. Soft warmth as well. Ends with more chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit, light booze, vanilla, and light coffee. Tasty!
