Bottle. Pours dark red to brown in the light, and the head almost completely fades. Smells of coffee with hints of chocolate. Taste is good but it’s slightly more carbonated than I would have liked.

AgentAle (638) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Aroma is creamy, roasted malts with some caramel hints. Taste is a deep maltiness that has caramel and licorice character. There is also nice mineral flavors comming from the famous Samuel Smith ground water. The malt and bitterness is very well balanced. The slight bitterness at end finishes very smoothly. Body is black is with a beige creamy head that retains well.

Aroma has roast Enis and bread with sweet slightly fruity and some chocolate. No real hop. Parents deep opaque brown with hints of ruby color. Mid-to large brown tan head that holds some retention. Flavors sweet burnt sugar and roasting this with bread and biscuit flavors that is followed with some chocolate no hop very malt forward. Mouth feel is medium to light bodied with the medium carbonation. Overall the light bodied beer per style with a good amount of roastiness and some sweetness and chocolate with bread characters that are all to style.
