COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complex and drinkable, Sea Legs delivers flavors of roasted malt and chocolate.

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.

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Dark near black pour with ring of brown head. Nose is slightly boozy and a hint vegetal. Roasty and toasty and vanilla notes. Really smooth and chocolately. Smooth and velvety, but not overly chewy or thick. Perfect mouthfeel for a porter. Really enjoyed this.

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Pint on tap. Black pour with a big ’ol tan head, lots of froth. Opaque, with strong adhesion. Strong alcohol aroma, similar to other baltic porters. This beer has a ton of taste, and a very persistent aftertaste, medium-light carbonation. Overall a refreshing and strong winter warmer!

DialSquare (2498) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2014
750ml bottle from Proof (I think). Black-brown pour with a big foamy tan head and strong retention. Aroma is dusty, mineral, cocoa. Tastes are roasty, nuts, vanilla, cherry, light licorice, chocolate, dark fruit, rye, earthy, little woody. Very nice.

A giant bottle of beer from Z and Z. Pours an opaque dark black with tan colored head. Aroma of roasted malts and wood. Taste is pretty complex, with malts, chocolates, coffee, wood, and hints of booze.

750ml bottle, shared. Black color, good thin light brown head, leaves great full lace. Some chocolate, toasted malts, maybe some tobacco in the nose. Lightly smokey, toasty flavor. Again with the herbal, and tobacco notes. A bit less heavy on the dark fruit than other baltic porters can be, and I personally prefer that. Good roasty malts, solid bitterness, light sweet. Nice roasty chocolate aftertaste, just a hint of dark fruit, good light bit of smoke. Bigger body, smooth lighter carbonation, dry finish. Influence from bourbon barrel is subtle - not immediately obvious, but vanilla and wood flavors are noticeable. though no boozy heat. A nice balance. I think this is well done.

arminjewell (5992) - Fort Collins, Colorado, 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.

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.
