500ml bottle from Billa supermarket, Zagreb (11.99 kuna):
Quite a nice dark style lager with plenty of caramel malts & nice, darker malts & fruits in there that keep things balanced & interesting. There was a pleasant hint of coffee to proceedings & I was surprised at how easy it was to drink with help from the creamy palate. Definitely one well worth seeking out if you ever find yourself in the north of Croatia & one I’m glad I stumbled across.

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)

This was my favorite beer from Medvegrad since 2004., rating it only now. Dark brown with orange tint, off white to tan lasting head. Lagerish aroma, hay and malt, hints of roast in the background. Roasty character, malty, caramel, nuts and some chocolate in the finish. Medium carbonation, medium body. A proper example of style.

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.

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

ElDesmadre (2507) - 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!
