3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Mosquito pub in Split. That one, together with its competitor Na Kantunu a couple of meters away carries a pretty good selection for Croatian standards, this one carrying a strong import selection and the other one a strong domestic selection. Sadly, the only 2 places, apart from some random supermarkets where I might get a tick at these days in Split. Anyway, to the beer, sorry for the random rambling. This poured a black body tinged a little with amber along the edges. Sharp malty nose, loaded with raisins, full but strange and didn’t sit that well with me. The taste did though, slightly lean/almost watery, but carrying a pleasant soft, creamy coffeish malty roastiness ending with a single bitter note from the hops, that lingers awhile. Nicer than I imagined it would be!
