0.5 bottle. Light brown head. No lacing. Aroma chocolate, roast grains, alcohol. Flavour chocolate, roast grains, very little sweetnes. Not so much bitternes. Overall: boring, tomislav is much fuller and aromatic.

luttonm (2170) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUL 3, 2013
.5l bottle, picked up in Split. Dark brown, gray light foam head. Sticky malt. Pale Tomislav impersonator but still richer than most Balkan dark lagers. Corny rich malt, cola body. Sweet caramel malts. Lighter body, some tobacco and coffee. Nice, wish I had it around here.

visionthing (2617) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
50cl bottle in Zagreb. Pours very dark brow with a lasting off-white head. Pretty weak aroma of malt, licorice and dark fruits with hints of hops and spices. Very light roasty notes. Moderate sweet with a fairly decent bitterness. A bit weak in flavour, but quite ok. (2013-05-18)

vipinvelp (2077) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2013
Clear dark ruby with small light brown foam head. Aroma is malty with some earth and grass notes. Taste is slightly bitter with coffee and toffee present. Aftertaste is turning little bitter in time. Not bad, but for the aroma. (Dubrovnik 201305)

sebletitje (6594) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2013
50cl bottle split with 77ships, thanks Eugène. BB 07-11-2013. Couleur brune claire, col beige fin. Arôme est encore ici typique des pays de l’est et tirant fort vers un bouquet allemand. J’entends par ici, ce côté faux caramel donnant malheureusement une douceur fausse. Le tout rappelant le cara et sucre brûlé. Seul point positif reste cette présence de moult et grains frais agréable. Palais garde ce profil très allemand, léger avec pas mal de grains et malt. La fin garde une fine amertume houblonnée avec un herbacé moyen mais qui au final reste neutre. Douceur reste là quoique surfaite.

77ships (3592) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2013
UPDATED: APR 4, 2013 500 ml. bottle shared. Obtained in a trade with Marko – Thx! BBF 07/11/2013 Pours a ruby hued dark brown with a fading tanned head. Smell is that of an irony lager, instant dunke associations, syrup added, rye bread, sweet vegetable,… Taste is lots of added syrup and caramel, very DE, not the greates, oodles of that stuff, bread, dark sugar, sweet, light malts, herbal touch, sweet vegetables. Syrup is felt in the body as well. Certainly a dunkel but too much off stuff here covered by too much not to agreeable syrup and additives.
