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.

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.

This poured with a bit more carbonation than expected but it hollowed to a thick froth that left intense lacing.

The nose presents roasted chocolate malts, dry coffee bean, sweet vanilla and a graininess toasted malt.

The flavors are a bit muted with very little barrel but I get significant chocolate malts. At times I catch a bit of vanilla bean or cream, some roasted coffee and a touch of smoky ember.

This is an enjoyable beer but I expected a bit more barrel characteristics as supposedly it's 12 months in a barrel.

Look: Dark, what else?
Smell: Malty, dark chocolate, residual sweetness, wood, booze from the barrel
Taste: Great dark malt, dark chocolate, residual flavor from the barrel aging. Nice clean finish on the hops. Good balance between hops, sugar and barrel lingers and play with each other:
Feel: A bit thin because the sugars or played out so it doesn't stick to the mouth. Good carbonation balance. Low acid.
Overall: Excellent beer with a near perfect blend of hops, residual sugar and alcohol content. Complex yet highly drinkable. Perfect for sipping over a long time. The alcohol content is high but not off the charts and nearly completely disguised. It is an imperial, but is not overwhelming. A bit pricey, but worth it. Get this one if you can find it.
