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.

0,5l bottle. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, and hint of caramel. Taste is pretty much roasted malt and coffee. It has bitter aftertaste. Not bad, but also nothing special.

I did expected that this beer could be very good beer but I was wrong. It has black color with very huge head. Everytime I spill it out of a glass. :-) It’s somewhat wattery and bready and I could not satisfy thirst with it. I am dissapointed.

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear deep bronze color with mid-sized creamy brownish head. Aroma of caramel malt, grassy hops and chocolate. Tastes of sweet caramel, bland coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel is too plain, while aftertaste is lightly bitter. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Good, but falling a lot behind Tomislav...

hrabren (23) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 30, 2012
Retired in 2005., reintroduced in late November 2012. A 0.5 bottle in Dobar zvuk, Zagreb. Black with a fast diminishing head, aroma of sour malt, not nice for a Dunkel, watery, shallow, empty, tasteless, uninteresting. I liked it much better in 2005., this is a ruined beer.

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 29, 2012
26/12 0.5 l bottle, courtesy of Marko, thanks! It poured clear, very dark copper body with small ivory head. Weak caramel aroma. Flavor was slightly sweet, a bit dry, caramel, toast, grains and coffee to lesser degree. Pretty watery. Thin bodied with shorter coffee and brown sugar finish. Unimpressive dark beer whose style is between porter and dunkel, but without any pronounced character to be enjoyable. Anyhow, I’m glad to see the revival, we miss something other than pale lagers and radlers!

It was pretty OK now I see why I can’t find it in shops for last two years. Not so good as Tomislav, but it has much less alcohol so its more watery.

Crnipapar (10) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 20, 2006
This is in some way a new beer to Karlovačka Pivovara and it shows. Generaly it is not a bad beer but dont have that something special like Tomislav. Color is dark red and brown, creamy head, strong malty aroma, medium body, coffee and caramel taste, aftertaste is bitter caramel.
