Pours a pitch black with a thick, frothy tan head. The nose is fantastic. Chocolate, roasted barley, nutmeg, anise, coffee, vanilla, toffee. The flavor pretty much follows the nose with an emphasis on the roasty notes. There is a good amount of sweetness present. The bitterness closes the show very elegantly. I can't believe how full and creamy the mouthfeel is considering the abv is only 8%. This is truly an outstanding beer.

750ml bottle poured into a 17oz 'Harpoon Limited Edition' embossed globe. Bottled On: 11/01/13

A- Although uncorking the bottle was met with little fanfare, a conservative pour yeilded a black-as-night brew with a substantial, 3-fingered mocha colored head. (Superb lacing left behind as it was consumed)

S- Despite being chocolate forward, pronounced aromas of vanilla, oak tannin and slight roasted notes are detectable. As the beer warms, the pungency in the aroma grows.

T- Bittersweet bakers chocolate at the front the tongue which slowly dries out and finishes with notes of coffee and tannins from the oak barrels

M- Light-to-Medium body. High carbonation helps to cleanse the palate and get ready for the next sip.

O- Uinta has yet to disappoint...Sea Legs is a very enjoyable and highly drinkable offering. Extremely well-balanced with the flavors from the dark malts and oak barrel aging. At 8%, the alcohol is completely hidden. Although the first batch of Sea Legs (ca. 2012/2013) was aged in bourbon barrels, the 2013/2014 batch is aged in virgin wooden vessels. For those who are fans of Uinta's Oak Jacked (one my favorites, ever), I am certain you would like this. Despite the description on the label, I did not get any hints of smoke in either the aroma or flavor. Great stuff and highly recommended.

Poured into becker pint glass; jet black with an awesome brown head from an easy pour that doesn't fade at all, leaving nice lacing as it slowly descends.
Smells of big chocolate, coffee, booze, metallic malt. A big smell, delicious.
Tastes like big chocolate and coffee, slightly tart, very big and malty, dark bread. BIG taste.
Mouthfeel is HUGE, creamy and smooth.
`Overall, this is such a big beer I regret choosing it as the second beer for the evening. Big beer, big mouthfeel, damn.

This fine brew was poured into a nonic pint glass.

The appearance was deep black; traces of brown highlights; thick and foamy brown cream head; excellent retention; thick and sticky lace around the entire glass. The lace never disappeared.

Smell-black coffee; smoked barley malt; toasted coffee beans; mocha goodness; figs; prunes and raisins. I could smell wood and perhaps some earthy notes from hops. Brown bread.

Taste-pretty similar to the nose. It was a great balance of sweet chocolate up front, with a bitter aftertaste from the hops. Smoky, toasty, roasty, and malty goodness. Black roasted coffee and mocha, along with figs and raisins. Alcohol was well-hidden. Such a complex beer, some tastes are hard to describe. Fire-roasted wood taste and some burnt brown bread.

Mouthfeel-full bodied; huge and chunky, yet light and fluffy. Creamy. Carbonation on the low side of medium.

Great sipping brew, but I can see how it is easy to just down it because the alcohol is so well-hidden. Loved every sip of this fine beer. Great for a cold February evening.

Another fabulous beer from Uinta in their Crooked Line series. Poured this one at a good temperature with an enormous, foamy, thick, creamy, fluffy, tan head that settles so slowly and good lacing. Color is a barely translucent black brown. Aroma is a nice blend of roast, malt, cocoa, old leather, a small amounts of coffee, dark ripe fruit, tree bark, earth. Body is excellent but carbonation is a bit soft. Finish is like flavor, slightly boozy, easy drinking.
