TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2004
Draught at Zagreb
Dark hazelnut color, cappuchino head. Light hoppy aroma. Slightly roasted, hoppy mouthfeel. Oily aftertaste. Maybe "the easiest" to drink of Pivnica Medvedgrad beers.

Comments: A bit weaker flavoured this one. Mild chocolate-marshmallows base topped by faint fruitiness. Okay integration, but shy.

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.

Big bottle from my friend Peter B. Many thanks. dark brown color with thick creamy off-white head. Aroma of dark malt, caramel, dried fruits. Taste, roasted malt, caramel, dark fruits, hints of coffee. licorice, very low hop bitterness, light sourness in finish. Tasty beer.

Marko (3896) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 9, 2005
I drank this after the mediocre Pšenično Pivo, and it restored my shaken faith in the brewpub. Dark/near black red, with a thick persistant head that left tons of lacing. The aroma was hard to detect, and I got mostly dust and a bit of malt. The taste is really pleasant and full - dried figs, liquorice and chocolate, with no detectable hops .I didn’t note the aftertaste. Good stuff.

Nice and very great to finish all the beers in this place with this marvel. The tradition of slav beers is just great no matter what of the countries you visit.
