4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours almost entirely black, with a dark brown rim to it and a mocha colored, soon disappating head.
Smells of cardboard, toffee and bakers chocolate, tied together by a whiff of earth.
Has a lower carbonation with enough swing to keep the beer refreshing on the tongue, which lets the palate open up to a profound, silk earthiness right from the beginning.
Tastes of dark chocolate, wrapped up by scented earth a metallic minerality and toffee, which create a beautiful and pungent interplay. Develops a nice dryness, with the rich malts prevailing, reminding of old leaves, with only the slightest malt sweetness cutting through, adding to the ever evolving flavor profile of this.
Great tasting beer, showcasing a perfect balanced interplay between licorice, earth and toffee, which stays enjoyable till the end.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark ruby, almost black color with creamy beige head that leaves some lacing. Smell is biscuity with notes of caramel and a bit of chocolate in the background. Very slightly roasted.
Thin to medium body with very subtle carbonation. Texture is nice, starts off as watery but turns into creamy soon enough. Taste is bittersweet with alcohol presence towards the finish. Aroma of malts, caramel, toffee and biscuits. Faint notes of chocolate. Aftertaste is a bit liquory, which is nice.
Overall, very good. Tasty one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is mostly licorice with some fruit and roasted malts. The taste adds some nut to licorice and roastiness. Palate is enjoyable, a slightly oily texture with some carbonation. Alcohol is nicely balanced. The taste is missing something, maybe that bit of sweetness that were present in the aroma? If I come across Tomislav Crno Pivo again, I’ll surely give it another try!
