hrabren (311) - Zagreb, - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle, 0.5 l, 7.5% abv, gift from Medvedgrad Brewpub. Thanks! Pours nice orange-yellow color with average, frothy, off-white head. Hints of acid in the smell, like sauerkraut, maybe some corn. Well balanced hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness with some pine in the aroma. Medium body, average carbonation, malty finish. Sincerely recommended.

Probably the best beer in Croatia, thats my opinion, even if you drink it from the bottle

Marstonlad (607) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Pours reddish brown with a big white head. The aroma features dried fruitiness - raisins, figs - and a combination of bready and caramel maltiness. Taste is sweetish, pronouncedly malty, rich on bread, caramel and nuts, also some fruity elements. Dry, light bitter finish. The palate is medium bodied, smooth and average in carbonation. A decent dark bock all in all, balanced and fairly rich in taste.

nimbleprop (6160) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 15, 2015
50cl bottle at Ro&Do pours a mostly clear amber with some rocky, off white head. Nose is cheap, stale bread, under attenuated malt, smells like adjuncts. Flavor is the same, cheap malt, cheap fruit, some rotting plums. Odd finish. Bad.

lusikka (7594) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2015
500 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Dubrovnik, Croatia. Pours a hazy brown colour with a small white head. Aroma of bready malts, yeastiness and dried fruits. Flavour of rich bready malts, alcohol, quite heavy yeastiness, dried apricot and caramel sweetness. Alcohol warms. Medium bodied. It’s slightly messy, as others have noted, at least in bottles. Maybe the draught version is better.

Mortlach (1381) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle shared by ippopotamo36 @Buskers Pub (Rome), thanks Alberto! Dark honey appearance with a little off-white foam. Aroma is malty, caramel, brown sugar, some roasted notes. Flavour is sweet, malt, caramel, a bit unbalanced, alcohol is very well hidden. Medium body, medium to light carbonation. Boring.
