0,5l bottle at Triton bar, Mali Lošinj. Pours cloudy dark brown with decent tan frothy head. Aroma is quite sweet, malty with some caramel and a hint of roasty notes. Taste is mainly sweet malty, some caramel and chocolate. Mild balanced bitterness and some herbal notes in aftertaste. Overall maybe a bit too watery, but pleasant and drinkable.

Woooow, lovely beer from a lovely place. The whole ambiance here at Medvedgrad makes this beer even better. The color of the beer is a lovely dark rube red. It’s amazing. The beer has quite some cloudiness. In top of the beer here is a nice soft layer of brown soft foam. The smell of the beer is just how I like it. It has that sweet hoppy thing. It reminds of strawberry jam, passion fruits and some more tropical fruits. The smell has a nice sweetness and a nice bitterness to it. The taste is amazing to. There is a nice bitterness and a lovely sweetness. It’s in perfect balance. The nice roasty touch and the slight strawberry thing are very good friends. I like it s lot. The finish has a lovely chocolate bitter taste. Amazing.

Ysok02 (1037) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2016
Très belle robe brune, mousse crémeuse. Nez puissant sur des notes maltées, torréfies, du cacao, du caramel. Bouche à l’attaque délicate, tout en finesse et en élégance, beau milieu de bouche crémeux et finale équilibrée. Une belle bière.
