visionthing (3401) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2013
On tap at Pivnica Mali Medo, Zagreb. Clear dark bown with a reddish hue and an off-white head. Aroma of caramel, fruits, malt, dried fruits, some hoppy notes and hints of yeast and roast. Moderate sweet with a light acidity and a balanced bitterness. Quite decent and well balanced. (2013-05-17)

ElDesmadre (2153) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Draught at Pivnica Medvedgrad. In my opinion the best of their beers. Surprisingly hoppy aroma with a top layer of grassy hops, under which there are the malty notes - bread, roast and caramel. The dominating aroma elements were the hops and dried plums, especially in the flavour. Light sweet, light bitter. Less dry and more hoppy than a regular schwarzbier. Very tasty!

luttonm (2909) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Draft at the Božidara Adžije location. Darkest brown lager, foamy over-the-top head. Soapy foam nose. Coating, rusty roast. Strong flavor, a touch metallic but otherwise very tasty. Striking roast, but same eggy, sour lactic nose that turned me off their other strong beer. Quite nice overall.

Moderately dark brown color, milk chocolate and toffee in the nose. Well balanced, moderately dry. Lasting coffee and toffee in finish.

31/08/2010 - 30cl from tap @ Medvedgrad Adzijina

Clear dark red to brown beer (not exactly black). Tick beige rocky head. Aroma is malty, sweet, dried fruits, caramel. MF is a little flat, medium body and somewhat watery texture. Taste is sweet, roasted malts, some red berries. Aftertaste has a little coffee bitterness, caramel and some acidity to keep the beer balanced. Good brew.

Eructoblaster (3294) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
On tap et the brewpub. Pours a black body with a good off-white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar hints. Taste is well balanced. It carries brown sugar and some roasty notes. Ends with a good bittersweet finish. Good effort.
