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)

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Nice (not so) long lasting head, color dark brown, almost black. Weak aroma, you can smell roastiness.Taste roasted barley, medium strength, medium bitter aftertaste. Not really sophisticated. Okay beer

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.

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.

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.
