Notes/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.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #73 (Feb 2013):

Great execution with the barrel aging and a hell of a job with brewing a robust Baltic Porter. Very balanced which is great to see with any beer that is aged in booze barrels, nothing is lost but all is complemented. Any worth beer geek should seek a bottle or two of this out.

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.
