Avetixz (87) - GERMANY - APR 23, 2016
Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, butterscotch, liquorice and some floral hops. Pours opaque black liquid with a finger-thick soapy head. Sweet taste with an initial flavour of dark chocolate and some cocoa bitterness, followed by notes of liquorice, spruce, coffee and roasted nuts. Medium body with a creamy texture, average carbonation and a bittersweet finish. Overall I really like the initial bitter cocoa taste, although it fades away after a while and the beer becomes sweeter and more bland, but still makes for a decent stout.
