COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Winter beer has been carefully cared and cultivated in order do be close to the consumer with the first days of the coldest season of the year. You will find in this beer everything that you are expecting from winter beer: warm dark-red colour, rich in flavor, and a bit more bitter specific taste and aromatic adventure.

After reading these reviews I didnít expect much. Karlovacka Pivovara does beers that are ok, very drinkable, but not really special. This beer is no exception, bitter, but not over the top, nice toffeish aroma, but not much body. Truly beautiful brown/amber colour.... Anyway, I was once forced to leave an opened bottle for an hour, with the bent cap as only "protection". It retained the carbonation, but lost all its taste (!), and the bitterness was far more pronounced. I donít think itís a ESL, but I also donít know what it is.... itís like nothing Iíve seen before.

Excellent winter beer with a full toffeeish body and mellow flavour laced with some bitterness in the aftertaste. A rich and tasty beer which I found quite enjoyable. (Bottle from shop, Zagreb)
