COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark brown body, big creamy head. Malty, caramel, coffe, roasted. Alcohol note is very present. The best product from Croatian commercials breweries.

Dark brown to black color, medium head, medium lacing. Malty licorice smell, strawy a bit. Taste malty sweet, licorice, oily, too heavy for half litre, not so tasty for long sipping. You can feel carbonation both on tongue and in throat. Very good for macro, but really nothing special.

Nice dark brown colour, foamy and sweet taste. The best Croatian beer so far.

Bottle brought home from Croatia by a friend. Clear very dark brown with a big and lasting light brown head. Aroma is dry, roasted malt, licorice and caramel. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and roasted moderate bitter finish. 070215

Decent lightweight baltic porter from Croatia. Nice appearance taste and aroma, not intense though. Not outstanding but I cannot say anything bad about it.

On tap in Vintage Bar in Zagreb. Don’t like this beer. After second glass it leave bad taste in throat. Most overrated beer in Croatia.

Despite recently being dethroned by Zmajska as the best rated beer in the country, Tomislav is still the undisputed king of the macro produced brews. I simply can’t think of a (non craft) beer that would come close second to this one. Black head, aroma of roasted malts and alcohol coming through. A bit of sweetness, caramel, coffee, all leading to a bitterish finish. This is definitely the booziest beer made in Croatia and it’s not for the faint hearted. If you can handle it, this is the mix of fastest, cheapest and most beer geek approved way of...getting drunk.

Without a doubt one of the best beers in Croatia! Very drinking notwithstanding a rather high degree of alcohol.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2015 0,5l bottle. Dark brown color, with creamy tan head. Roasted malt and caramel aroma, medium bitter, alcohol notes and dry finnish. Overall a good beer.
