Really nice industrial beer, however I was surprised with it being one of the best Croatian beers. Definitely not! However, I would recommend it. As it can be found anywhere it is always a good plan B.

500ml bottle(5/2/5/2/10=2.4), thanks FatPhil. Dark motor oil color. Faint caramel, slightly sweet and some roast in aroma. Sour in taste. Smooth and caramel too. Ordinary taste. Sour notes are not intensive. Ohh and it looks like beer! (review and numbers by Kristel)

Odlično pivo, uz Gričku vješticu najbolje Hrvatsko tamno pivo. Tamna boja, gustoća i okus karamele, čokolade i kave. Malo je slađe za moj ukus, al to mu ne kvari prosjek.

0,5 bottle from Croatia, courtesy of Marko. Opened and consumed in Serbia. Pours the closest I have so far seen to espresso coffee color, brown texture and creamy dark ivory foam. Nose: coffee, leather, molasses, fresh black figs. Mouth: bitter palate, smoked barley, refreshing aftertaste and not much of that 7,3% alcohol. One more please. Thank you Marko

Bottle 50cl kindly brought from Croatia by my parents. A clear amber dark beer with good head. Nose is on caramel and toasted grains, aroma is on sweet caramel, toasted caramel, roasted grains, toasted biscuits, light plum notes, nutty, light wet paper finish. Body is a bit low for 7°, easily drinkable, near to a greman dunkel.

Pours black with creamy head. Aroma and taste have roasted malt and chocolate. A nice beer when you want something else than Karlovacko in Croatia.
