Ładna piana. W zapachu delikatny słód palony. Kolor ciemny brąz jak dla mnie za przejrzysty. W smaku czysta paloność i delikatna ziemistość. Polecam chyba najlepsze chorwackie pivo jakie piłem.

Bottle 0,5l from some supermarket in Šibenik. Brown body, small beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, especially dry plums, red apples, chocolate, caramel. Taste the same, very sweet with medium bitterness, some warming alcohol tones.
It’s rather porter than dunkel, some between. I don’t expected much, but it’s very nice surprise.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2006 New Review:
Poured a very dark red colour with a big thick, almost creamy tan head that went away at a medium pace leaving no lacing at all. Interesting deep sweet malt and caramel aroma (Papsoe got it right). The taste is rather interesting slightly sourish and metallic, coffee and caramelish malt. Roasty an bitter aftertaste. Yup, this is actually a dunkel, not a porter as someone who added it thought. Not offensive, refreshing even. I’ve had a lot worse beers than this thank you very much. Of course, this isn’t nearly as good as Tomislav or the dark Velebitsko, but it has is own merits. The rating stays the same.
Bottled, 0.5l. Dark, dark almost black red, a big brown, but rapidly disappearing head. Unimpressive, but enjoyable taste, with some hardly noticable hints of chocolate. If you can’t find Tomislav, this is ok. If you can choose from both, pick Tomislav. (19.09.2004)

.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.
