luttonm (2138) - Belgrade, SERBIA - MAR 2, 2012
Draft at the Božidara Adžije location. Golden brown haze, white head. Honey, robust sweet. Touch too clean. Could use some more complexity and depth, but I like the approach and wish there were more of this style around here. Very nice.

tderoeck (4371) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2010
31/08/2010 - 30cl from tap @ Medvedgrad Adzijina

Note: this beer is a mixture of Zlatni Medvjed (+-70%) and Crna Kraljica (+-30%) and is mixed from trap in the glass. This means that the beer is never exactly the same.

A slightly clouded amber coloured beer with off-white rocky head, disappears quickly. A very prounounced yeast aroma with hints of caramel and hops. Mouthfeeling is round, full body. Taste is malty, a little hoppy, some caramel and spices like cumin. Aftertaste is fresh malty, not sweet. Some acidity.

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Amber body with a thick off-white creamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with piney hints. Taste is slightly dominated by maltiness. It carries flowery notes and ends with a decent bittersweet finish.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 26, 2010
Nice to drink, refreshing and most important, it was a dark one, I just love the sweetness of the Southern Slavic beers, reminds me the Canadians.

Draught at Pivnica Medvedgrad, Zagreb. Notes from July 08. Pours copper with some reddish highlights and a white head. A bready, malty sweetness with a lingering bitterness in the finish.

heavy (2116) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 30, 2007
27/10 0.5 l draught with and after pizza. A bit murky reddish brown body with medium bigger ebony head. Aroma again is dominated by unpasteurized sourness, some hops, too. Flavor quite mild, hoppy, pleasantly bitter and sweet a bit. Very easily drinkable. Finish is short, follows the flavor, not bad. Something between Zlatni Medvjed and Crna Kraljica, but I really doubt it is half of each mixed. Not really much of schwartz character inside. Good one.
