Mortlach (1454) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle @Buskers Pub (Rome), shared by ippopotamo36 (thanks Alberto!). Deep brown honey color with a good beige foam. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, some coffee. Flavour is well balanced, roasted notes, little sweet, with a decent bitter end, some caramel. Light body, medium to light carbonation. Nice!

MarkoNm (1894) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 7, 2015
Pours a clear dark brown color, red undertone, topped with a decent and solidly lasting tan colored head. Malty aroma, a bit roasty with some mild chocolate notes. Taste starts with some sweetness, quite watery with some grassy notes later on. Mild bitterness and slight herbal presence in the finish. Drinkable, although a bit more taste would be needed - a bit too watery.

ippopotamo36 (992) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Boban, thank you. Shared with mortlach and Valerio in Rome at Buskers pub. Pours almost black with syrupy texture close to a reddish brown, tick and frothy beige cap with incredible retention and drafts. Nose: caramel, roasted malts, fresh tough. Mouth: watery as the style requires, a bit too thin but without any evident flaw. The roasted malty feel is there with a well-balanced bitterness. Some non-disturbing caramel too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tonimeister (44) - Orahovica, CROATIA - MAR 16, 2015
Tamno crno, mutno pivo minimalne pjene. Okus slab, na drugu pomalo gorkast. Okus kave i karamele osjetan. Malo mjehurića. Lagano pivo, vrlo pitko, drugačije od drugih tamnih piva. Nije previše gorko. Kremasta tekstura, iako pomalo za zaborav. Očekivao sam puno više.

Thanks to Marko, I managed to sample the new, bottled version of this beer. Even though Gricka Vjestica is still my beer to go at Medvedgrad, I’m no stranger to this one. Pours dark brown, with aroma of roasted malts and moderate foam. Soft to moderate carbonization. Sweetness and bitterness complement each other well after giving way to coffee/caramel. That said, not a complex beer.
