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.

Picked up a caged and corked 750 ml bottle from Total Wine for $11.99. Bottled on 141/04/13.

Beer poured dark brown with a near perfect tan head.

Nose has hints of mocha and whiskey.

Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, and whiskey. The combo works well together.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and very smooth.

Overall this brew has some great qualities! Porters tend to be thin bodied but this one has a nice viscous feel. The whiskey barrel is subtle and well played. The vanilla and chocolate added worked out pretty well. Nice brew, glad i had the opportunity to try!

Bottled Oct. 24, 2013

A - Pours very black for a porter and has a tan two finger head with great retention/lacing. One of the best looking porters I've seen in a while.

S - Has an aroma of bittersweet chocolate powder, milk lactose, brewed coffee, roasted malts and light vanilla. There's not a huge barrel presence on the nose, but the other aromas are very enticing.

T - Bittersweet milk chocolate at first, coffee and lactic acid begin the journey. Midway it's all roasted malts and at the end there is light barrel notes along with vanilla and brown sugar.

M - Light to medium bodied with medium fizzy carbonation. It's a very smooth bodied beer with a wet finish.

O - It's a well done beer. The base beer shines through all while letting the barrel treatment come forth, but not take over completely.
