Croatian Royal Beer.
Tomislav, made with 17.75% malt extract, is the strongest beer in Croatia, introduced in 1925. The use of double malted barley gives this dark lager its full taste and special aroma, much appreciated by connoisseurs. Tomislav pivo has an alcohol content of 7.3% vol, and should be served at 8° C.

Roasty and heavy, a lot better than other beers from same brewery. Gets you tipsy in no time and hammered a lot sooner than one would expect. Decent beer.

ectuohy27 (751) - ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2015
A very good, rich, velvety beer that defies easy description. Aroma is strangely off-hopped but beyond that, the head is thick, almost creamy; the beer itself has a rounded, full character at mid-taste, with some touches of caramel sweetness and some of roasted stout, though malt predominates; and the finish is (sadly) a bit too bitter and hoppy. Still quite clearly worthwhile, and a very nice surprise from a Croatian macro.

jamestulloch (2116) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle at Mea Culpa, Dubrovnik. Dark brown body with ruby highlights and a thin beige head. Lively carbonation. Very faint lacing. Aroma of raisin, plum, roasted malts and a hint of dark chocolate. Flavour of prunes, flat Coca-Cola, cherry and a Belgian style finish - pepper and spice. Thin body with a smooth texture. Soft fizz. Easy drinking for the ABV and quite complex.

kalervo (853) - FINLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Splitissä pullosta 6/2015. One could maybe argue if it is a baltic porter or not, good beer anyway.

cagou007 (549) - FRANCE - JUN 3, 2015
Pours dark brown with small tan head. Aromas are roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and dark fruits. Rather dry, with a hint of sweetness. Medium body and average carbonation. Long bitter and roasty finish.

lusikka (7102) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2015
500 ml bottle @ Buzz Bar, Dubrovnik. Pours a dark brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma of roastiness, some licorice notes and bread. Flavour of rich roastiness, syrup, tar, licorice and quite nice bitterness. Full bodied. Definitely the best Croatian beer, so far...

StilleStorm (1064) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2015
DWFID; Bottle 0,50L. Pours moderate, clear dark brown with a lasting, lacing frothy tan head. Nose is roasted malt, caramel, coffee, light dark fruit, chocolate and spice. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with a lasting sweet, warming finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Rotin (211) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle 0,5l. Clear, brown colored beer. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, toasted malts, alcohol. Flavor of toasted caramel and roasted grains in finish, moderately sweet, but somewhat empty, a bit harsh alcohol notes.
Not so good as I expected.

Ascelja (210) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle 0,5l from Interspar Zagreb. Dark brown body, medium beige head. Warming aroma of alcohol, dark fruits, toasted malt. Taste is sweet at the first, next dry with roasted bitterness on the finish. Spices, peppermint, alcohol, toasty. Medium to full body, medium carbonated.
Not bad, but unbalanced. The distinctive taste of alcohol is disrupting.

0.5 litter bottle at Calebotta bar in Trogir, Croatia for 25 kuna. Very good.
