3.83/5 rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Aroma: Sweet, you can really smell the cocoa in there.
Appearance. very dark, opaque. the head is brown and creamy. I would honestly say reminds me of a Guiness.
Flavor: Ever have some bakers chocolate by itself? That's what this tastes like. It's bitter and sweet. I get hints of roasted malt in there. I get another taste that I am not sure what it could be, molasses maybe?
Mouth feel: Low carbonation. Has some creamy tendencies there. I do almost get a alcoholy after taste but not over powering.
Overall impression: Wow, this is a pleasant surprise really. I wasn't sure what to expect. I like this one simply because it is a nice sipper. Legends has had several beers that are very much surprising and this would be one of them.

Poured from bomber into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deep brown nearly black color with a big billowy tan head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving only a light level of lace on the sides of the glass
Smell- The aroma is quite heavy of roasted malt and a semi sweet chocolate smell. Mixed with these aromas are some sweeter caramel and vanilla aromas as well as the lightest touch of a nutty smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt and cocoa flavor. As the flavor moves on it sweetens more as flavors of a caramel sweetness and vanilla enter the taste. These bring a more milk chocolate like flavor to the tongue. Toward the end however, the chocolate flavors of the brew grow even stronger bringing back a more cocoa and less milk chocolate flavor to the tongue. In the end, with a light hop flavor of a earthy nature and a light nutty flavor coming to the tongue, a lightly bittered semi-sweet chocolate flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is slightly on the lower side. The lower carbonation accentuates the dark roasted flavors as well as the chocolate flavors rather nicely, although a slightly thicker body may have enhanced these even more.
Overall- A rather tasty and sweeter chocolate porter. While not the most potent or flavorful overall it is rather easy to drink and quite satisfying. Not bad.
