ElDesmadre (3078) - 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!

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2015 Draught at Pivnica Mali Medo, 0.5. Caramel taste, nice black/red appearance with medium foam. Overall taste is not bad it it takes to get used to the bitter taste.

Mortlach (1956) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle @Buskers Pub (Rome), shared by ippopotamo36 (thanks Alberto!). Deep brown honey color with a good beige foam. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, some coffee. Flavour is well balanced, roasted notes, little sweet, with a decent bitter end, some caramel. Light body, medium to light carbonation. Nice!

Pours dark ruby, almost black colour with medium, creamy beige head. Smell of roasted malts, yeast. Subtle chocolate presence. Medium body with average carbonation. Smooth texture. Taste is nicely balanced, slightly bitter. Aroma of roasted malts and yeast with toffee and caramel present in the aftertaste. Finish is short and mostly dry. Overall, pretty good and refreshing. I’m definitely picking this one up again.

Thanks to Marko, I managed to sample the new, bottled version of this beer. Even though Gricka Vjestica is still my beer to go at Medvedgrad, I’m no stranger to this one. Pours dark brown, with aroma of roasted malts and moderate foam. Soft to moderate carbonization. Sweetness and bitterness complement each other well after giving way to coffee/caramel. That said, not a complex beer.

50cl on tap. Pours dark brown with weak brownish head. Aroma of caramel and coffee. Taste is a bit sweet and predominantly caramel. Average sweetish aftertaste. Very drinkable, but it could be more complex.
