Bottle courtesy of Eepiest. From memory. Nice brown, pretty up the middle, picked up a little molasses with age, still not very sweet though. Legend Brewing is the shit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, courtesy of jasonp. Thanks, Jason! Pours an oily, dark cola color; off-white head with patchy lacing. Nougat and sticky dried fruits in the aroma; some coffee. Medium mouthfeel: coffee and nougat; slightly watery, with a decently chewy malt core; messy and kind of weird, honestly. Medium, nougat and instant coffee finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 22 oz. Transparent and reddish sienna brown pour. Aroma suggests wheat biscuits, chocolate, wild rice, and molasses. Tinny hints of maple and caramelized sugar wander in. Taste is of tepid malts, being strangely clean, lightly fruity and generically dull. Wood, honey, maple, and vanilla in that usual montage of dark malt sweetness. Thin palate lacks any kind of liveliness or rich bombast; it couldn’t serve as a refreshing session or as contemplative sipper. Something so uninspired can hardly be expected to inspire. Thanks for sharing, Jason!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appears a dark brown with a light tan head that slowly fades out. Scattered lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of roasted nuts, toffee, cream, cocoa, light buttercream, and gentle smoke.
Taste is of the aromas with a decent mix in a different but enjoyable flavor.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, smooth, sugary with mild cocoa bitterness hitting the tongue on the swallow.
