Draught @ Pivnica Medvedgrad, Zagreb. Pours cloudy copper brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and yeast. Ditto flavour. Mild, slightly bitter aftertaste with sourish hints. Watery. Poor.

Marko (4855) - 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.

Gurthnar (4841) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 6, 2014
Tap at the Brewpub. Aroma roasted, caramel, light oxidized hops. Clear deep amber to brown colour. Taste is a bit weird. Initially caramel and fruity. Then it turns bitter, but with almost no hops flavour. Also the body is a bit thin.

visionthing (4731) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - 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)

luttonm (4524) - 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.

Geiserich (4103) - Linz, AUSTRIA - SEP 20, 2006
Draught:Aroma with toffee, malt and fruit notes. Dark brown color, nearly no head. Intensive toffee flavor, light to medium sweet. Quite light body. Roasted malt in the end which is responsable for a dry, bitter finish. Quite nice, low alcohol beer.
