3.59/5 rDev -5.8%
12 oz bottle from my Beer of the Every Other Month Club poured into a pint glass.
A -- Pretty nice looking body. Its got some stuff flotsam and jetsam floating around in it--sediment, if you will. Nice color, not too dark. Eggshell colored foam with solid lacing and very good retention of a layer of foam.
N -- Kind of nutty. Mostly malt smells here... breads or crackers or biscuits or something.
T -- Straightforward brown ale. Nothing crazy going on. Malty with a nice hop dryness and a little nut or fruit backdrop.
M -- Very drinkable and smooth.
O -- I liked this, i would drink it again.

4.15/5 rDev +8.9%
Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams glass. Clear, deep molasses color with a cloudy tan head. Really pretty.
Smell is roasted malt and faint coffee. Not picking much up.
Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, bitter coffee, smoke, brown sugar. Extremely well balanced and drinkable.
Mouth is very well carbonated, yet smooth. Light body with a wet finish.
Overall, one of the best brown ale's I have had.

A: Lovely dark chestnut color. Medium carbonation. Sticky very viscous foam. Not sure if this is normal, but my bottle had a good amount of chunky sediment at the bottom. Maybe it was mistreated before I got it or just plain pushing the 'best by' date. I don't get many Virginian brews out here in Brewvana Oregon. Loses points for the sediment whether its Legend's fault it not.
S: Rich deep nuttiness of hazelnut. Sweetness of caramel and molasses. Slight applewood smokiness. Supple leather. A little mineral smell: carbon, steel, iron and copper.
T: Starts off nutty and rich and leathery like the smell. A little bit of cedar and oak builds in also. Sweetness builds a bit in the back of the tongue shortly after. Also there's a little cinnamon spice that starts to come through. Slight bit of tangy dry hops comes through at the end which mostly finishes clean. The hops finishes dry and slightly floral. Crisp and fairly clean. A little bit of grass and a fair amount of straw towards the end. Mild sweetness persist in a weak aftertaste.
M: Medium body, not too thin. Finishes crisp and bright; I really like that and could go for a touch more. Finishes clean; only mild sweetness lingers but not for long.
O: Quite nice brown ale. Very balanced; great rich flavors and the crisp finish really plays off the richness well.
