UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 Pours a clear copper with a modest amount of head. Not highly carbonated and really doesn’t leave any lacing in the glass. Smell is heavily caramel and taste follows up with extremely sweet caramel and breadiness. Mouthfeel is full bodied and creamy. I’d say this is a bit too sweet to be drinkable through the day but it makes a nice change of pace for a fall day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle at Hell’s Kitchen, Norfolk, VA. Deep clear orange-brown body, thin clumping cream head. Corny nose, sweet, with brown sugar, candy corn, and hints of spice. Body of candy corn with sweet toasty notes and a grassy, bitter finish. Average. tia (2226) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2012

On draft at The Camel in Richmond. Pours brown/orange with an off-white head. Big malted caramel aroma. Taste is smooth, roasted malts wit ha nice sweet balance. A surprisingly amount of bitterness comes through. A nice surprise from Legend. bytemesis (8411) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Tap. Pours clear deep amber with a very small off-white head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. Aroma is dominated by roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is also mildly sweet caramel roasted malt with notable grassy bitterness. Not bad, actually

The aroma is grainy and malty with metallic hops. The appearance is deep amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a caramel quality. The palate is average for he style. Overall noting special but it is drinkable. theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Pours clear dark amber with a dissipating, bubbly light tan head. Aroma is of hops, floral notes, roasted malts, some citrus and a little caramel. Lots of roasted malts in the flavour, spices, smooth hops and some grain and wood notes. Very crisp, complex and smooth. picknbrew (196) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Clear amber color with a thin tan head that does not last. Aroma is malty with some sweetness and caremel. Taste is slightly sweet with plenty of caramel. Finishes smooth. Creamy mouthfeel. I had to rerate this after finishing the bomber. Overall the malt profile seemed slightly cloying to me. I have had better Octoberfests from this brewery in the past.
