Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

In a snifter from a bomber.

A- light, foamy espresso head forms into a plateau, and lace is scattered everywhere. Pitch black body with zero clarity.

S- creamy sweet malt flavor, the trade mark Uinta floral hop aroma (smells similar to Dubhe), faint chocolate, earthy notes. Caramel.

T- dark bitter chocolate, caramel, a touch of floral hops, vanilla.

M- thin and viscous with a bitter bite and some minor booziness. The finish lingers bitterlike.

O- A good beer but I remember it being close to perfection on my first try. I guess my taste has changed or evolved.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 11/03/14.

Appearance: Poured into snifter glass. Brown color while pouring; in glass its like black licorice in color. Very thick 2 inch off-white head. As it slowly dissipated, lacings were all around the glass.

Smell: No bourbon. Maybe plain oak barrels? Predominantly malt with coffee with a little bit of floral hop notes.

Taste: bitter instantly and throughout - very woodsy and earthy. Like dark unsweetend baking chocolate. Its quiet a contrast to the smell. Regardless, the bitterness keep wanting me to take another drink after another. Very subtle malt following through.

Mouthfeel: thin mouthfeel (their Labyrinth is their exception - super creamy and thick!)

Overall: it's a great Baltic Porter. As I recall, this is probably only a few of the Baltic Porters I tried. I can't help but find a lot of similarities between this and black IPAs with the exception for the richness Sea Legs offer. Very tasty beer! And as far as I know, this beer is seasonal, not only brewed once as stated on this website.

well, it's dark looking. nice thin layer of variegated film: sudsy punctuated by a paisley of tightfoam spots. some lacing for sure

very oaky and vanilla aroma. some blackenedness, though minimal sweetness.

very oaky flavor, though not harsh. the mouthfeel is soft and airy. limited kilning astringency. hop flavor up front: woody and blackcurrant
