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.

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, cork opened with a pop. Thick black pour with creamy tan, aroma brought notes of nice cocoa powder, vanilla, bourbon, and lots of oak come through, some coffee, roast, hints of slight caramel, toffee, and molasses, hints of dark fruits, and some slight smoke but pretty restrained. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, lots of dark fruits and anise, hints of roast, slight bourbon, lots of dry oak, there is a slight smoke note in there that manifests as it opens up, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter. Interesting brew, one of the better in the series for sure.

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.

ben4321 (4827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Location: Bottle at Nerd Beer Epic Weekend, 1/26/13

Aroma: The nose is roasted mats, bourbon, toast, brown sugar, molasses, and a hint of chocolate
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a light brown head and some drippy lace
Flavor: It has a dry, malty flavor with plenty of roast, and noticeable but not overpowering bourbon
Palate: The body is mid-full, it has an average carbonation, mild heat, and a dry, roasty finish
Overall Impression:  This one works quite nicely. There’s noticeable bourbon in the right balance with plenty of malt. It isn’t super sweet thanks to some dry, roasty components. Overall, this one is quite good.

rayOfBeer (673) - El Cerrito, California, USA - MAY 16, 2013
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.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2013
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 didn’t get much bourbon, if any out of it.

Cory (372) - , California, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is smoke, champagne, and sweet tomato. Medium bodied, light across the palate. Brine and ash with dark malt taste. This is a good porter, and one that one could easily enjoy a pint and not walk away stumbling.
