Roasted malt and coffee in aroma and taste. Nice dark colour with a bit of red. In taste there is also some whiskey and alcohol, which leads to medium bitter syrup finish.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The beer look amazing, just the way I like it. The color of the beer is a nice pitch black on the naked eye. Light unveils a nice ruby red/brownish glow. On top of the beer, a nice layer of soft light brown foam is formed. The beer seems rather clear. The smell is nice. There are lovely aromas of malted barley, giving the beer a dark roasty bitterness and also a mellow sweetness. I smell some caramel and coffee tones. There is unfortunately a strong metallic flavor. This gives the beer an unpleasant bitter touch. The taste is better. This doesnít contain the metal touch. It only has the gentle roasty bitter touches, reminding of coffee and caramel, and sweeter malt aromas of sweet chocolate. The balance between bitterness and sweetness is great in the taste. Itís better than in the smell. The finish has a strong syrup-like sweetness and gentle bitters. The plate is great. It has just the amount of kick to give a pleasant sensation. Great beer.

Impossible to say anything positive about this beer. Made rather by a group of chemists. Clearly perceptible alcohol in throat.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown color with medium head. Aromas of chocolate-coffe, rye, caramel and roast. Taste is similar to aroma with medium, but smooth sourness and bitterness at the end. Medium-bodied and a bit spicy palate. Enjoyable beer. For me, the best Croatian porter so far.
