Geiserich (3353) - 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.

Eructoblaster (2999) - 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.

visionthing (2700) - 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)

luttonm (2192) - Belgrade, SERBIA - 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.

vipinvelp (2144) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2014
Clear dark ruby red with light brown foam head. Aroma is bit weak. Taste caramel with some toffee aroma. Short aftertaste. (Zagreb 201403) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 30, 2007
27/10 0.3 l draught. Had dark brown body with medium creamy, slowly diminishing brown head. Roasted malts in aroma, quite strong sourness. Maybe also from some kind of hops... Flavor is sour, a bit bitter, coffee. Finish long and pretty sour. Lacked sweetness expected for the style, but still quite good. I will try it again next time in Zagreb if this was in bad condition.

jerohen (1993) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2007
On draft at Zagreb. Black, small brown head. Malty nose, some liquorice. Predominantly bitter flavour, not a lot of complexity. Lasting bitter finish. Thin mouthfeel.

Gurthnar (1658) - 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.
