ElDesmadre (1585) - 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!

On draught at the "small bear" bar in Zagreb. It pours an opaque dark brown with a slightly tan head. light-medium body with a mellow dark malt flavor with very slight caramel notes and a dry finish. Minimal hops present. A clean dark beer.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2004
Rich smooth and chocolatey brew, this was probably the best beer I had in Croatia. The flavour was very full and bursting with chocolate and molasses and the balanced finish was very moreish. One to sit and drink. Top stuff. (Draught at Medvedgrad, Zagreb)
